KIDS' SUMMER ART CAMPS
Our camps for children ages 6 - 14 years old are run by art educators and include a wide range of media, encouragement of creative thinking, and problem solving. Our teachers are accomplished artists and are aided with assistants.
Materials and refreshments are included each day. Artist’s smocks or old T-shirts are advisable. All camps are held at KIFA’s “PinkHouse”
August 7 - 11 / Ages 8-13
9:30 - 12:30
Five Days! Four Projects!
Each day an artistic instructor is featured, and each child goes home with a finished piece. Projects will explore many mediums as they learn to conceptualize their ideas, draw their designs, paint, sculpt or fabricate their creations.
Tlingit Paper Piecing
Maria Kristine Sage
Inspired by the story “Raven: A Trickster Tale from the Pacific Northwest”, students will read and then create a Tlingit style paper animal. The distinctive art of the Tlingit reflects their culture and history from nature and mythology in various states of realism.
Students will learn traditional and non-traditional methods to marble and tone their own papers. They will make their own pen for ink drawing, and formulate tempera paint from eggs.
The students create their own invention through hot gluing recycled objects to build sculpture skills, and then spray painting them with silver. When dried they will then make blueprints of the sculpture through drawing from different perspectives.
Whirligigs! (2 day project)
Campers will be making a whirligig based on an old-fashioned children's toy. It consists of a horizontal and a vertical dowel, both of which spin. The whirligig is attached to a wooden block, and the vertical dowel is topped with a papermached object of the camper's choice (fish, bird, plane, etc) then horizontal and vertical dowels are covered with beads reflecting the theme of the top object!
