summer camp 2021
I am not planning summer camps for this year. I made this decision early in spring and while things are still so uncertain with regards to the pandemic I am taking a break and hoping we will be back to normal for next summer.
I can add your email address to the newsletter subscriber list so that you will be notified when new camps and classes are added to the schedule.
This is an art camp. Students will be outside, on a covered deck. Students should dress for the weather and art!
Art projects are designed to inform, delight and entertain all students no matter their skill level or age.
Art is the main theme for camps and students work on their projects throughout the day.
FIELD TRIPS (summer camps)
We like to take our students on a field trip on one of the camp days. We have, in the past visited art galleries, public art at the
U of S and downtown.
We encourage our students to sketch the art and architecture they see and discuss the art among themselves and with gallery staff.
Morning meeting where we discuss the outline for the day, followed by sketchbook activities and warm up exercises to get the creative juices flowing.
I strive to give camp students experiences with as many different art media as time allows; pastels, watercolour and a 3D project for example.
There is typically one large project that takes the majority of the week to complete as well as smaller sized projects that take from one to three sessions to complete.
Camp days tend to follow a regular, yet flexible schedule. The weather, planned activities and students needs are taken into account.
