Summer Art Camp
Five sessions in June 2018 | Details below at St. Augustine Art Association
The St. Augustine Art Association hosts its annual Summer Art Camp, with five week-long sessions Mondays through Fridays in June 2018.
There are four sessions of camps for children in grades 1 through 6, all of which take place in the mornings from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Additionally, there is one afternoon session (from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.) for students ages 12 and over during the last week of June 2018.
The five sessions are organized by theme and inspired by master artists.
Session 1: Thrones – June 4 - 8, 2018
Campers conquer the Medieval world of art, featuring knights and fair ladies creating royal selfie portraits, illuminated manuscripts, and fantastic gargoyle and dragon sculptures.
Session 2: My Cousin Vincent – June 11 - 15, 2018
This session is all about Vincent Van Gogh, as campers take an exciting journey into Impressionism and Expressionism, recreating starry nights and irises in richly colored paintings, 3D mixed media, and collage.
Session 3: Soar! – June 18 - 22, 2018
A camp full of the artistic discovery of flight. Projects will draw inspiration from aerial photos, birds in flight, rockets, kites, and may even some unidentified flying objects as well.
Session 4: Super Heroes – June 25 - 29, 2018, Morning Session from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon
For grades 1 through 6, this morning camp celebrates the 80th anniversary of Superman, offering kids the options of creating graphic posters, fabricated masks, and comic-inspired 3D sculptures.
Session 5: Art Intersections – June 25 - 29, 2018, Afternoon Session from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
For ages 12 and up, this afternoon session will help kids find new inspiration for their big art ideas in an experimental environment, exploring techniques from puzzle painting and art-in-motion assemblages to mixed media inspired by Mondrian, Matisse, Picasso, and Klimt.
The Summer Art Camp will conclude with a Children's Art Exhibit to be held during the First Friday Art Walk on July 6, 2018.
