What you'll learn in this kids art camp class:Campers will learn the basics of surface design through printing, dyeing, felting, sewing, drawing and design. Campers explore stencils, block printing, and photo emulsion processes, as well as about resist and immersion dyeing with both natural + synthetic dyes. Fabrics created are used toward their completely unique final projects!
Through daily exposure to textile media, kids explore new avenues of creativity, improve their dexterity, and make new friends while learning about historical and contemporary use of the fiber arts. In addition to structured class and craft time there is daily free play and playground visits, weather permitting.
Campers visit TAC daily, for project-based classes inspired by their weekly field trip to a current textile related exhibition in New York. Each weekly session concludes on Friday afternoon with an Open House where family and friends are invited to view projects on display!
A note about location: Textile Arts Center official camp site locations are within walking distance from our facilities. Each day, campers visit TAC for their Class Times for full access to our equipment and materials. Drop off/Pick up, and Craft Time are held at the official camp sites.
