summer creative camp

intro to painting

This one-week, immersive class will give participants instruction on a variety of painting media as well as a chance to experiment with mixed media. Each project comes with a short, fun lesson and topics range from a broad understanding of art history to basic formal fundamentals such as color theory and composition.

The week is designed to strike an entertaining balance between traditional painting knowledge/instruction and playful experimentation. The class is great for varying skill levels, all you need is an interest in art and a desire to see where it can take you.
