The instructors are all practicing sculptors so this should be a great opportunity to work on a LARGE SCALE. This summer camp session will engage the artist in individual and group 3D projects. We will make small individual versions and large group projects that will be on display outside in Downtown Anderson. There will be a giant inflatable piece, a large weaving, a Chahuli inspired sculpture, and a figurative installation.
WEEK 2 | START STOP-MOTION | Animation Camp
Our stop-motion animation camp will be a fantastic opportunity for artists to work with two practicing animators who have graduate degrees in their field of art. They will explore character development, backdrops and scenery, storyboards, stop-motion film techniques using a variety of methods and technologies, and so much more. The action packed week will end with a mini film festival of movie clips produced during the week.
WEEK 3 | MAKE YOUR MARK | Drawing, Painting, and Printmaking Camp
Public impact and exploration of Pop Art and graffiti, painting, and drawing will be emphasized during our 2-D art camp. There will also be some painting using more familiar traditional artists as inspiration, but with our own twist. The artists will be encouraged to express themselves through their art voice and make their mark on the community with a small final show to display the work accomplished during the week.
WEEK 4 | EARTH & FIRE | Ceramics Camp
Learn with your hands to create forms from clay made from our own local river! Our instructor will guide the artists through several techniques and ceramics processes and each student will make work both independently and as a group. The group project will be displayed for the final show of student work along with a wheel throwing demonstration and weather permitting a raku firing.
