Art Summer Camp 2012
February 24, 2012
This is an art camp like you’ve never seen before! It’s life sized! It’s in 3D! And it’s a completely new way to see, feel, listen and create within the artistic environment of Color Wheel Studio.
Color Wheel Studio was created to teach children about the principles of fine art and summer camp is no exception. Each week, we will study a famous painting and reproduce it as a large scale three-dimensional form. At the end of each camp week, friends and family will be invited to view our finished piece in a traditional gallery setting.
Here’s how your child will see things differently at Color Wheel Studio Art Camp:
To work, collaborate, and think as a team
To plan, develop, and work towards a finished product
To look at a two-dimensional form and translate it into a three-dimensional space
To develop problem solving skills
To have fun learning about and understanding art
To learn to see things differently
Ultimately, we will create an exact replica of the painting in a child’s life size format. The kids will learn about the artist as well as about the techniques used to create the original painting. They will discover the medium used and why the artist might have made the decisions they did in each specific painting. In developing these tactile skills, children will gain a better understanding of how to experience a piece of art with all of their senses.
And as always, art summer camps at Color Wheel Studio uses at least 95% recycled material. How cool is that!
