Drawing and Painting Camp: 12-13

This camp, for students ages 12-13, offers students the opportunity to focus on their drawing and painting skills in a highly creative and challenging environment. Through individual and collaborative projects, students are introduced to both traditional and experimental materials and methods and explore a variety of drawing techniques and approaches to build their technical, spatial, and creative abilities, including essential elements of 2D design and art. Working with a wide range of materials, students investigate contemporary subjects and themes using pencil, charcoal, pastel, ink, gouache, water-based paint, and mixed-media through skills such as line, perspective, tone, proportion, composition, value, gesture, and contour. Trips to the Art Institute of Chicago to observe and sketch from a wide variety of paintings, sculptures, and objects are used as inspiration for studio work. This camp is designed for beginning students as well as those who want to continue developing their skills and confidence in drawing and painting and can be repeated for continued skill and idea building.
