[VIRTUAL SUMMER FINE ART CAMP]

Children return every summer to express themselves creatively and gain new skills!

Young Vincents summer art classes are a blast! They run May – August in one-week sessions, and offer kids an opportunity for intensive study using a variety of mediums. Classes are designed to develop your child’s skill in watercolor, drawing, mixed media, sculpture and acrylic painting. Campers create original artwork inspired by our dynamic thematic curriculum receiving nurturing instruction from our teaching artists. Building kid’s confidence and having a great time doing it…that’s our goal!

 

Kids are always encouraged to use their imagination and develop their own interpretation of our themes, while gaining the tools needed to share and express their ideas.

 

Whether beginner or an advanced student, weekly thematic sessions offer the opportunity for all levels to advance through multiple sessions or one.

CREATING A SAFE SPACE

Our staff has worked diligently to implement protocols as recommended by the ADHS and CDC, and we are eager to serve our students with their health and safety as our first priority. We require all staff and students to wear masks when in the studio. We are taking all precautions recommended including taking temperatures upon arrival, routine cleaning and sanitizing before, during, and after camp, reduced capacity, single use of aprons and supplies, maintaining social distancing to the best of our ability, and overall just being very, very clean. Additionally:

  • All camp registrations/payments must be processed online through our website
  • Masks required in the studio at all times
  • Temperature check for attendees & staff
  • Contactless check in/out
  • Kids drop-off/pick-up will take place outside
  • Snack and lunch will take place outside, weather permitting
  • We will practice social distancing within the studio to the best of our ability

CURRICULUM

Drawing: Students develop art skills through the foundation of drawing. Children build self- confidence while learning the art of contour, gesture, proportion and perspective. Students learn to use charcoal, graphite, pastels and pen & ink. The creative possibilities are endless.

 

Painting: Children naturally connect to their spirit of exploration when scooping up paint with a brush! Their journey is exciting as they learn about color, design and composition. Invaluable techniques teach children to express emotion, atmosphere, texture and movement.

 

Mixed-Media & Sculpture: Sculpt, collage, print and more! Kids explore their creativity and learn various hand building methods to create unique sculpture. Young Vincents experiment with different materials and mediums and use their imagination for endless possibilities!

ART SHOW

Summer 2021, we will continue to host a small art show with students only. Our young artists are encouraged to set up their own art shows at home after the last day of camp. Join us on the last day of every session at 3:00pm for a community art show joining friends and family. Children’s completed projects will be on display and ready to take home the day of the show.
