Summer Art Camp

Summer Art Camp is a time for imaginations to run wild. Students will have the time of their lives creating and imagining alongside professional artists. Each week brings a different artist with new themes and projects. Students learn to develop an artwork based upon everyday experiences using the basic elements of art.

2016 Camp Details


 

EXO-SYNDICATE

"Gift Baskets Magnificent"
Ages 6 and older
June 20 - 24, 2016
 

Make large "gift baskets" with artists Greg Blair, Crystal Harper, Eleni Aman, and Hannah Nehlich. This unique art camp will focus on collaboration, experimentation, viewer interaction, and giving to the local community. Campers will work alongside the artists to weld, paint, and weave the fantastic forms. The finished "gift baskets" will have openings that will allow the viewer to reach inside and take gift bags of artwork made by the campers. The "gift baskets" will remain in the Museum's sculpture garden after camp is over to allow the art giving process to continue. Extra gift bags will be made to replenish the supply over the course of the installation.
 

This camp is partially funded by the Community Foundation’s “Forkin it Over for Public Art” project: Made possible by the Knight Foundation Donor Advised Fund and the NV&ME Bush Innovation Fund.
