Under the direction and instruction of Mrs. Monica Schraiber Otero, Google Classroom trained and experienced in teaching art remotely, this Art Camp is a three-week program during the month of July for ages 6-11. Focusing on Creativity, Imagination and Ingenuity, Art Camp offers children a unique opportunity to acquire or improve artistic skills, learn new techniques, explore different media and get inspired by famous artists. All, while having fun! Students design their own camp T-shirt.
Central Theme for 2020: Masterpieces of the 19th & 20th Centuries
Students learn about the life and work of modern masters such as van Gogh, Matisse, O’Keeffe, Monet, Picasso, Reilly among others, as they create pieces based on their techniques. Using wet and dry media, they draw and paint with pencil, oil and chalk pastels, crayons, markers, watercolors, tempera, and acrylic paints. In addition to sculpting with modeling clay, participants make collages, prints and build structures out of recyclables. During each cycle, students create a small acrylic painting on canvas suitable for framing!
Online visuals and presentations are part of the lessons. Up to three different projects are done every day with breaks for stretching / snacks / supply set up time in between activities. If a student is unable to attend a particular session, the instructor will try to provide a recording of that class enabling him/her to complete their work.
