yard art

Art Camp Jr.

We had our first Jr. Art Camp this year.  It was small in numbers but huge in fun!

Campers had the opportunity to create some yard art with shapes, patterns and paint.

The yard art takes on a whole new look from above and through a window screen.

Splatter painting in the manner of Jackson Pollock was explored on day 1.

Printing with hands was lots of fun as well.

Crayon making was also part of the creative experience.

It was fun to discover many new ways to create using everyday objects.

Exploring print making by using your hand with various colors was lots of fun.

Everyone became immersed in the creative experience.

Art Camp Jr. was a huge amount of creative fun!  I hope you can join us for a future class or workshop at the Art Junction.

Art Camp -Day 2

Campers began day 2 with working on the yard art composition.

After yesterday’s introduction to the yard art concept, today everyone really sprang into the creative process.

Campers were thoughtful in their placement of sprayed shapes in the continuing design.

Everyone participated in the ever-evolving yard art design.

Yard art viewed from the second story window.

The second project was creating a 3-d sculptural bug.

Using cardboard, campers designed and cut out the shapes of their bug sculpture with a little aid from Artman.

After assembling their bugs the painting process begins.

Painting is always lots of fun!

Art Campers were very busy today having fun in all their creative endeavors!

Art Camp -Day 1

Art Camp began today at the Art Junction.

The campers created a cardboard stencil of something they were interested in turning into a chalk drawing.

Campers then learned how to add water to their chalk and incorporate using a brush to create their chalk image.

The campers learned to make chalk paintings on the sidewalk.  Everyone was amazed at how fast the time passed as they worked on their projects.

The other project we began was some yard art.

Campers used found objects to use as stencil patterns.

Adding shapes and color to the dry landscape was a new idea and lots of fun!

The Campers had fun learning and exploring new ways to be creative in day one of Art Camp at the Art Junction!
