Participants will be encouraged to develop style and skills using a variety of drawing and painting media. Students will create their own artist portfolio, sketch in sketchbooks and complete large drawings and paintings, working to construct a cohesive body of work. The group will explore influences from historical and contemporary art, using the museum galleries, local artists, and artist portfolios as references; spend time engrossed in the studio and have a great time making art all week long.
Our Artist’s Studio Experience offers 6th-12th graders the opportunity to work with a local practicing artist from a specialized field of fine art. Participants will discover art techniques used throughout history and learn about art terms and artists specific to the week’s theme as they create their own works of art. Each week, participants will also see examples of the teaching artist’s portfolio, and have the opportunity to converse about art careers, portfolio development and the vast applications of art. Magnet school students may work toward completing summer art requirements, and all participants will work to build an art portfolio. A great summer experience for young artists!
