Join us this summer for All About Art Summer Camp!

Presented at Veneta Elementary School in partnership with the Lane Arts Council, this hands-on camp offers safe, fun experiences in the arts for youth.

This year’s camp is all about Global Explorations as students experience music and dance from different cultures, incorporate famous landmarks into their painting, and learn to sculpt animals from around the world.

 

Special Guest: Maggie Matoba, Hawaiian music and dance

Session 1: June 25th-June 28th, Monday-Thursday

Global Exploration kicks off with learning Hawaiian traditions as students learn to hula to the sounds of the ukulele. Students will also begin exploring wildlife from different parts of the world as they work on individual silk paintings and ceramic tile painting. Campers will also learn how to make their very own drawing books for creative expression through the remainder of the summer.

 

 

 

Special Guest: To be announced!

Session 2: July 2nd-6th, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday

Students will explore rhythm and art history as they create “sun shakers” inspired by depictions of the sun from cultures around the world. Campers will also get their hands dirty as they mold 3D clay sculpture of animals from every continent. Students will explore performance arts with a to-be-announced special guest artist!

 


Special Guest: West African Cultural Arts Institute

Session 3: July 9th-12th Monday-Thursday

Campers will get on their feet to learn traditional Guinea, West African performance including call and response song, dance, and playing hand-made percussion instruments. Students will continue exploring silk painting as they work on large community silk banners and sculpture as they explore puppet-making and storytelling. This week will end with a showcase of camper-created works as we celebrate art and expression from around the world!

 

The lead artists for our camp are Alex Lanham and Merideth Ferrell, two professional artists excellent at facilitating youth programming.

Camps will be held in three sessions for the following three weeks: June 25th-28th, July 2nd-3rd & 5th-6th, and July 9th-12th, 2018.

Session fees are $50 per child per session or $125 per child for all three sessions. Payment is accepted online through PayPal. Please contact Lane Arts Council to pay by cash, check or card.
