This camp allows teens to explore their creative sides! Students enhance their portfolios with immersive, hands-on projects and learn how to discuss art, describe their work, and give and receive constructive critiques.
This year, projects are inspired by the theme “Imagining a New World.” Students will:
- Create safe haven sculptures using pulped papier-mâché, natural elements, fiber, and a variety of other media, and incorporating techniques such as embroidery stitching, wrapping, and weaving.
- Move through stations to collaboratively experiment with mark-making techniques and textures and use the resulting works for vibrant self-portraits.
- Learn and practice pen and ink illustration, then use authentic printmaking techniques to create a series of fine art etchings.
On the last day of camp, Friday from 2–3pm, Strathmore welcomes families to a student artwork showcase and reception.
Strathmore’s art camps are directed by Rosana Azar of Creative Adventures.
