If your child longs for more hands-on art experiences, the Art Camps offer the luxury of time, materials, and instruction to guide the creative mind and spirit.  Some kids stay all day!

Instructor: Liz Demas, WCS Art Teacher
 Liz has a degree in Fine Art and has taught at WCS for 31 years, the last 17 years teaching Visual Arts.

    Four (4) different camps are offered.  There will be Morning and Afternoon Camps offered,
    or you can register your child for both camps in a week- For all day and Save!.

WEEK 1: June 28-July 2
     8:30a-12:00p- Bookarts & Painting
        Create beautiful, useful book structures: sew a sketchbook, a nature journal, and a real hardcover book. Interested campers may create an altered book using collage, paint, stamping, folding, sewing, cutting, gluing, drawing and coloring to transform the original binding. Painting techniques will also be offered: marblized paper, watercolor, tempera and acrylic on various surfaces from a tiny canvas and mini easel to larger canvas boards.

     1:00p-4:30p- Woodland Fairy Houses and Gnome Homes, plus mini- furniture sculpture
          Build a magical deep woods dwelling using all natural materials: stones, birch bark, wood, plants, moss, shells and sticks. Create furniture and accessories for the enchanting little characters you will also make to inhabit your house. Write a story about the character’s adventures in a hand made book. This camp stimulates wonderful extensions at home for endless hours of creative and imaginative play! Start gathering pine cones, branches and stones from your walks in the woods.

WEEK 2: July 6-9 (No Camp July 5)
     8:30a-12:00p- Mudflat City: 3 types of CLAY
          We will roll, coil, pinch and slip low fire clay into monsters, tiles, story pots, robots, lighthouses, and beautiful clay leaves shaped into bowls. These projects will dry and be fired, and campers will return to glaze their pieces on July 19th. Air dry clay will be offered to make a beautiful Chinese garden. Polymer clay such as “Sculpy” will be used to make small sculptures and cool beads for jewelry.

     1:00p-4:30p- Mosaic Mirrors and Sculpture
        Design a project using the ancient decorative art of mosaic tile work on a wooden frame. Create patterns using colored glass and ceramic tiles set with mastic glue and then use grout to produce a professional finish! Additional sculpture projects include a small wooden box, picture frame, and “Sculpy” figures.
