St. Augustine, FL (April 4) - The St. Augustine Art Association rolls out five, week-long Summer Art Camps for children in grades 1 through 6, beginning June 6. Each session explores creative projects in painting, drawing, sculpture and mixed media inspired by master artists.
QUICK CHANGE ARTISTS
SESSION ONE: JUNE 6 – 10 (9am-Noon)
Resident artist Don Trousdell uncovers mysterious creatures that instantly change their looks to attract mates, find food or escape hungry predators. Students have fun experimenting with color and the art of optical illusion through 2D and 3D painting and fabrications.
SESSION TWO: JUNE 13 – 17 (9am-Noon)
Let’s get out there! Just in time for the 100th birthday of America’s National Parks, we’re celebrating with art. Create “plein air” landscapes with paints and pastels, animal collages and cool Ranger gear for a field trip adventure.
OUTTA THE BOX
SESSION THREE: JUNE 13 – 17 (1 - 4pm)
Young architects, builders and sculptors: Break out of the box in this 3D construction project. Assemble Picasso-inspired cubist sculptures of buildings, people, animals, vehicles and more using cardboard, paints and found materials.
STITCHES, WITCHES & WIZARDS
SESSION FOUR: JUNE 20 – 25 (9am – Noon)
Needles, fabric and thread never looked so wickedly good. Inspired by the fantasy world of the Wizard of Oz, this magical journey in quilting, mixed media and fiber art just might cast a spell on you.
CIRCQUE DE C’LAY
SESSION FIVE: JUNE 27 – JULY 1 (9am – Noon)
It’s a three-ring circus in here! Create fun and fanciful characters and props using clay, wire and mixed media. Let your imagination soar under the big top of this Calder-inspired art extravaganza.
