Several weeks ago, I designed and taught an art camp -- also known as the most fun summer week ever -- for The Music School of Roanoke Rapids.
My students, ages 7-14, worked on drawing, painting, and collage techniques; learned about van Gogh and Georgia O'Keefe; explored color theory and even made a permanent art installation to reflect The Music School's core values (see above photos). IT WAS SO MUCH FUN, and the students took home a bunch of amazing original art that they had created at the end of the week.
Here are some photos of their work... starting with their garden-scape/sea-scape collages.
We also did a still life, where used their fingers as view-finders to identify a composition, and paint it using shading to add value.
We explored the color wheel, learned about various painting and drawing techniques, and practiced drawing flowers super close-up, like Georgia O'Keefe.
Stay tuned for pictures of my next camp, which is for 4-8 year olds... should be quite interesting. :)
