Length of Time: Class will begin Saturday morning at 9:30 A.M., and goes through to about 2:30 P.M. on Sunday
This camp is for those who not only enjoy nature, but also enjoy being creative. To be an artist you have to really “SEE,” so fine-tuning your sense of sight is crucial for an artist, from pencil sketches to understanding the color wheel.
We will take a look at how different famous artists portrayed nature in their work.
Trees Gustav Klimt
Birds John Audubon
Skulls/ Flowers Georgia O’Keeffe
Camo Henri Rosseau
Photography Ansel Adams
Journaling Lewis & Clark
Prints Currier & Ives
Numerous small art projects will be part of the camp activities, along with time in the woods to inspire your creativity.
Landscape Design will take art from the paper to the environment. Music through songs and instruments are art forms that will be explored too.
