2013 Summer Art Camp
Classes begin June 10th and end on August 16th – Registration Still Open
The summer of 2013 launches the Georgetown Arts Center Youth Program in our studio on the Square.
Summer Camp Location Change: All summer camp sessions will be held in the Georgetown Library. Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Art Center will not be ready for our camp this summer. We appreciate the generosity of the library and the donated space to hold our Summer Art Camp.
Half-day, Week Long Sessions:
- Morning: 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., ages 6-8 years old
- Afternoon: 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., ages 9-12 years old
Cost: $150 or $125 for members per session (material fees included)
Upcoming Camp Classes
With the backdrop of the beautiful downtown square, students will enjoy a studio art experience inspired by contemporary exhibits in the gallery, art history and the architecture in the community.
Each week will feature a different theme and will include diverse projects for students to explore a variety of media and art processes. All classes will be taught by professional art educators or artist-educators in a safe, nurturing environment.
July 29th – August 2nd
Body of Art
Do you think you can only draw stick figures? Not true. Learn how to draw people using basic shapes and the rules of proportion. Then experiment with free form gestural lines or shading techniques to add movement and dimension. To better understand the body, you’ll learn about anatomy and movement through yoga or Pilates. First learn the basics of figure drawing, then mess it up! You might create an expressive self portrait in crazy colors like Van Gogh or sculpt exaggerated skinny figures like Giacometti. Inspiration can be found in the gallery with the Museum Anatomy exhibit.
August 5th – 9th
Have you ever wished you had wings or could be a comic book character? This is your chance to develop your own fantasy figure through cartoon illustration, sculpture, or mixed media. Take a cue from Museum Anatomy and use your body as a canvas by using theatrical makeup or mask-making. Finally give your character a story by writing a poem, graphic mini novel, or character profile cards.
We recommend our partners on the Square who are also offering quality summer camps that will align with our daily schedule. Your child can participate in art camp half a day and another camp the second half of the day. For a full day camp and supplemental child care, contact All Things Kids to customize a daily schedule.
