Do you like to explore the outdoors? Have you ever been interested in the way snail shells spiral or the patterns on turtles? In this camp we will explore how nature’s artforms can inspire our creative thinking. We will look at crystals and rocks and various other specimens to enhance our artwork. We will be spending a lot of time outdoors, drawing and painting “en plein air” and utilizing the sun to develop prints and explore shadows. This camp will truly be a joy for the creative adventurer at heart!
Katie Ryan has been teaching elementary art for ten years. She has worked in museums and public education in both Oklahoma and New York. Katie values play and choice in arts education and gives children a lot of freedom to explore their own creative ideas. The Studio Habits of Mind are at the heart of her teaching. Katie has a BFA in studio arts and an MA in art history. She finds it important to teach children about artists and encourages them to open dialogues with each other about their own work and the art they encounter from fellow students and professional artists.
