All new projects for 2011! This is the art camp for the budding young artist with a flair for the wild. Working with a professional artist, we will draw everyday inspired by plants and animals from nature and learn new techniques to enhance hand-eye coordination. We will create designs experimenting with paints, pastels, charcoal and sculpting media to "capture" our favorite nature center animals. Fee includes all art supplies and materials. $155 ($147 for members)
Wild GLASS Artist- (5th-8th grade graduates) NEW!
July 11, 13, 15, 1:00-5:00
In celebration of the Nature Center’s seasonal exhibit, "Art Aquatic," we have created a very special camp for the teen artist. It’s time to get creative with glass fusing and glass casting! Learn from a professional glass artist how to break, cut and fuse glass into beautiful works of art. Sculpt clay to create models and pour plaster molds for casting your favorite animal in glass. We will finish the camp with our own glass art show! (Fee includes supplies – each student should bring clean, empty clear and colored glass bottles & jars to recycle into glass art). $96 ($91 for members)
