Art Camp Jr. was held this past week, and all of the kids enjoyed our theme of bugs.
On the first day of camp everyone explored building their own imaginary bug out of found objects in the Art Junction. The second day, campers worked on painting and designing their bugs.
Campers also created chalk art bugs using many new techniques.
Campers also used watercolor paint to begin a bug painting.
Adding marker to the watercolor design, campers defined their images with strong lines.
Examples of some wonderfully fun bugs.
Picasso said that “every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up.” I think I know the answer: continue to make art with kids.
Finally we explored mixing primary and secondary colors with paint scrapers.
Everyone enjoyed the action and texture created with scrapers and paints.
Art Camp Jr. was a wonderful time of exploration, creativity and plain old fun!
