Come Join the Fun!
Create and explore
The summer kid's art camp is an amazing experience for kids ages 5-16, where they will learn various art techniques, color theory, and exploration. The classes range from sketching, painting, clay, and mixed media. Each class is set up to be 1 1/2 hr. long with an option for kids to stay an extra hour to swim. We will provide a snack (something simple like fruit and chips) as well as drinks (water, lemonade,etc.)
Art Camp Location: 2470 Newcastle Rd. Newcastle, CA
Monday Kids Summer Camp Painting Classes:
We will be painting outside on picnic benches and every student will be provided with an easel, canvas, paints, etc. Kris will lead students through a step -by- step approach to painting; however, she will allow students to use their creativity and modify the painting in whichever way they choose. We will focus on brush choice, color, brush strokes, and overall composition. Students will be given a snack (fruit, chips, etc.) and each student will be provided with something to drink (we will have mason jars with lids, so parents do not need to pack water). Parents will have to fill out a waiver when they drop off their children, with contact information and allergy information. Once we have finished and signed our paintings (around 12:30) parents can come pick up their children or they can let the students stay and swim in the pool for an hour. Please see pictures in the picture gallery for an idea of the place and environment.
Thursday Polymer Clay Classes:
Similar to the above Monday class. However, instead of painting we will be creating objects with polymer clay, which we will cook in the oven to make hard. Kids will then be able to glaze the clay. We will work on using tools and techniques for molding and shaping clay.
Friday Mixed Media Classes:
Similar to the above Monday class. Instead of painting only we will begin with painting and then add various elements to our painting to create a more three-dimensional painting. Depending on the theme, students can add paper, glitter, fabric, strings, jewels or beads, coral, sand, etc.
Night Adult Painting Classes:
These night painting classes are conducted in Kris's studio. Kris will lead adults through a step-by-step painting; however, allowing each person is encourages to utilize personal freedom to deviate whenever they choose. This is a casual and fun environment, where Kris will provide some snacks and drinks; however, anyone can bring snacks or drinks if they choose. Ages 16+.
