Starting with the color wheel and moving to advanced color theory, participants will explore painting, collage, natural color creation and so much more.

July 22-16 / Week 3: Drawing from Life: People, Places, Things
Participants will advance their observational drawing skills drawing exclusively from life – learning how to draw recognizable objects and develop new ways of seeing the world.

July 29-August 2 / Teen Camp Week 4: Thinking in the 3rd Dimension
What does 3D artwork really look like? How can you incorporate 2D into 3D? What does it mean to make a found sculpture? Explore these concepts and more!
