Class description

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.
