Multi-Arts Camp (AM): Ages 8-9

This camp provides a stimulating environment for students to explore their artistic potential and increase skill development by working with a variety of materials, using the Art Institute of Chicago, surrounding architecture and public art, and current events as inspiration. Students gain skills in a wide variety of media, which may include drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpting, and mixed-media in addition to critical thinking, time management, and problem solving in a fun, safe, and nurturing environment. Projects are designed to enhance both personal expression and collaborative abilities while introducing students to contemporary and historical art. Students may enroll for morning (AM), afternoon (PM), or both camp sessions (All Day). Each session has a new focus so students that enroll in both sessions encounter all new studio projects.
