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 four animals paintings, four figure paintings and four landscape/still life paintings. At the end of the 5 day camp, each student will have 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, Chris Babcock and her team of teachers show students how to draw and paint a 15 by 20-inch painting.  

11:00 to noon is lunch time:  

Each day during lunch time, kids socialize while they enjoy their sack lunches, then they get to play in the back yard.

Noon 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.
