Clay and Canvas - Knights, Princesses and Dragons
Imagine a bug with cool antennae and wild legs or a fire breathing dragon popping right off your canvas! We’ll be using Sculpey clay to make 3D relief clay characters and painting with acrylics on canvas. The painted canvas will become the background environment for the clay characters. This is a really fun combination of painting and clay and the results are amazing. There are two sessions for younger campers, choose from Knights, Princesses and Dragons (Session 1) or Bugs, Plants, Vines and Flowers (Session 11). Older campers will design their own unique characters and backgrounds (Session 5).

It's All About Me!
Everyone is different, interesting and special - this week is all about having fun and celebrating who you are. We’ll create our own unique self portraits using a variety of materials. Our work promises to be unusual and creative - how do you think you would look with the ocean flowing from the top of your head or your curly locks becoming jungle vines? Younger campers will be creating animal personality portraits by combing traits from three animals that best describe their personality. Older campers will be working with on a painting/collage combining mixed media to create layers of acrylic, paper and fiber. Depending on the direction of the projects older campers may also be using clay, Shrinky Dinks or mosaics as part of their work.
