Art Camp At The Farm
Jim and I live on a beautiful Menonite Farm
in Ghent, KY
and this year I'll be having art camp here.
I'll be offering three very different art camps
Here's some happy campers from last year.
Beginning Art Camp - May 31- June 3, 10 a.m. - noon $80
We'll be learning lots of art foundation concepts
as well as putting them to use.
This fun camp is for students age 7 and up who have never attended one of my art camps before. We will dive into learning about color by making a color wheel, color chart, and how to use these tools. Students will learn all about brushes and how to use the different type of brushes. We will learn how to create form by using color and they will play in the paint as they complete two paintings.
They will have one day learning to draw as they explore the tools in drawing, learn to create form and work on still life subjects.
We will spend time talking about art and what it is, learning how to see, and take walks on the farm looking for interesting things to draw and paint. We will learn to see lights and shadows also.
We will also explore other mediums, such as water color, pastel chalk, and painting markers.
Students will complete two paintings but will have many opportunities to create and bring their studies and exercises home.
