This year Art Camp focused on the theme of color.

We began with a warm-up exercise to work together combining small amounts of color and lines with other media.

This fun little exercise has some wonderful results.

Campers discussed color, images, and shapes, and we talked about how we combined these elements in our last little exercise.

100_4647Campers worked as a team incorporating their ideas on two large outdoor paintings.

Everyone had fun exploring how to cover the large white areas.

It was a little intimidating at first, but eventually everyone jumped into the creative experience!

Splattering the paint was lots of fun!

Using the brush and mixing colors had several creative challenges that were soon overcome.

The introduction of spray paint and learning how to use it gave the paintings a whole new level of fun and new layers of color.
