ART CAMP! 5 – 7 year olds

DRAWING, PAINTING, PRINTMAKING was a hit! Five mini-artists (and one dog) joined me for a three-day camp that focused on three important 2-D techniques: drawing, painting, and printmaking. Our projects included Traced-Self-Portraits, Folk-Art Chalk Pastel Birds, Giant Paper Fish, Salty Watercolor Paintings, Potato-Print Gardens, and Andy Warhol-Inspired Self-Portrait Prints. Enjoy our gallery of work, below!

ART CAMP! ART CAMP! ART CAMP!

We’re super excited to offer a series of mini art camps this summer! As always, classes will be chock full of realĀ art-making materials and concepts. (In The Art Room, we’re so much more than pipe cleaners and popsicle sticks!) Sign up today, and join us in July.

THE ART ROOM: Saran Wrap Painting + Printing

Our 2.5 – 4 year olds made their printing plates (on illustration board) by smooshing, twisting, and smearing paint under saran wrap. After adding some final touches to the plates with the back of a spoon, we flipped them over and printed them on a large piece of paper. The stunning results surprised all of us!

THE ART ROOM: Pendulum Painting

One of our most fun (and messiest!) projects yet, pendulum painting was a half-art, half-physics experiment. After we determined the appropriate water-to-paint ratio for successful dripping, we let ‘er rip! And, even though we were focused mostly on the process, the results were beautiful.
