ART CAMP 2011
May 24, 2011
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.
Art Camp 2011 is broken down into four one-week long sessions for children ages 6 and up
Space is limited to six children per session
You may sign up for just one session, or as many as you’d like
We offer a 10% discount if you sign up for two or more sessions
Each session is $375 with a 10% discount for siblings if applicable
Art Camp will be held every day, Monday through Friday from 10am to 1pm
One painting will be discovered and reproduced each week
At the end of the last day of each session, we will host a gallery opening to share our completed piece
Week One | June 20th through June 24th | Pablo Picasso | Three Musicians
For our opening week, we will investigate Pablo Picasso’s painting Three Musicians, a work that just screams “build me!” Your child will learn about Picasso and his cubist way of thinking as we build a larger than life 3D replica of this musical masterpiece.
Week Two | July 11th through July 15th | Maurice Sendak | Where the Wild Things Are
During our second week, we will sail around the wonderful world of Maurice Sendak. This image of Max coming in contact with the sea creature from the book Where the Wild Things Are is always a favorite. Recreating this scene is going to be so much fun, it will feel like we are right there on the waters with Max. Let the wild rumpus begin!
Week Three | July 25th through July 29th | Vincent van Gogh | Vase of Fifteen Sunflowers
One cannot learn about art without crossing paths with Vincent van Gogh. Still today, no one quite captures the vivid, colorful life that has become synonymous with van Gogh’s work. Imagine the bright blooms of a summer bouquet as we build it from the ground up.
Week Four | August 15th through August 19th | Joan Miro | Peinture Femme se Poudrant
Color forms and wire will come to life as we recreate this epic piece by Joan Miro. Layer upon translucent layer of background will set the stage for each charming character as envisioned by this surrealist painter and sculptor. The 3D version will be like nothing your child has experienced before.
Come to Color Wheel Studio and see what we’re all about. Learn to see things differently. We can’t wait to create with you.
