TWO OPTIONS OF STUDY:
OPTION 1: Bring in any image you would like to produce using professional-quality acrylics on archival paper and Chris will consult you when you need her. Your painting will be pre-drawn for you unless you prefer to learn how draw it yourself. Please email Chris firstname.lastname@example.org with the image you want to study at least a week prior to the first day of the camp.
OPTION 2: STUDENTS VOTE ON WHICH IMAGES THEY WANT TO STUDY....On the first day of camp, we show the campers the images pictured on this description page. The images are arranged in three categories: animal, figure, still-life/landscape. After viewing all the images, the campers vote to narrow all the images they study to 2 animals paintings, 2 figure paintings and 2 landscape/still life paintings. At the end of the 5 day camp, each student will have two to three 15 by 20-inch glossed paintings to bring home.
What to wear and bring: Please only wear old clothes and shoes and pack a sack lunch and a big water bottle to last the entire day.
MINUTE-to-MINUTE CAMP TIME-LINE:
9 am to 9:45 am is creative mind and friendship building time:
When art campers arrive, they sit and spend this time talking to each other while working on warming up their right brains by creating original drawings with 28 color Sharpie markers on museum quality bristol paper. The rules of this all week Sharpie drawing exercise are:
1) Each student must draw at least 20 original characters by putting two unlike things together for instance; combine in some way a and the Transamerica building and an an alligator or an astronaut and a pickle).
2) Campers must use all 28 colors of sharpies in their drawings, no scribbling is allowed and the drawing is only complete when there is absolutely no white showing on the paper.
9:45-11 am is the beginning of formal painting lesson: Through step by step instruction and constant visual demonstration, instructors show students how to draw and paint a 15 by 20-inch painting.
11 am to 11:30 is lunch time: Each day during lunch time, kids socialize while they enjoy their sack lunches.
11:30 to 12:30: Accompanied by their teacher, teen campers walk to the beautiful Roshambeau play ground on 24th at California Street and are offered basketballs and soccer balls. Teens are welcome to bring a book to read at the park, too.
12:30 to 3 pm is the continuation of formal drawing and painting lesson time using the finest professional quality acrylic paints on museum quality archival paper.
At the end of the week, each student will bring home three 15 by 20-inch glossed paintings.
