Summer Art Camp is up and running with a whole slew of activities on the go.
The first week brought in a group of focused young artists who were keen to try different art mediums. The result of their hard work was an impressive art exhibit at the end of the week, which allowed them to show off their work to friends and family.
Our campers hit the ground running in week one. On the first day they immersed themselves in number of art projects. A tour of the Gallery offered some inspiration – after studying the work of Biennial artist Susan Dobson our youngest campers were inspired to create mirrored self-portraits. They also did other drawing exercises in still life, using stuffed animals as models.
Our artists also created spray paint self portraits, abstract paintings using yarn and a number of collage pieces including a checkerboard (“check” it out below).
They also learned about print making, etching and the art of scratchboard – another medium that tied into our Biennial and the work of artist Brad Emsley.
One Summer Art camper summed up the experience nicely. After just one day at camp the 9-year-old exclaimed, “This drawing is the work of art I’m most proud of in all my life.” What a great start to summer art!
