What you'll learn in this kids print making class:The Day Camp is a unique environment where young artists use their hands to explore the act of making through different traditional textile practices. Our program is led by an accomplished team of creative professionals who believe that artistic expression is fundamental to a child's well-being and development. We foster a sense of community and friendship among campers to help them grow as individuals.
Campers build specific skills sets through one-week, project-based classes. In addition to structured class time there is daily free play and playground visits, weather permitting. Every Wednesday, the entire group ventures on a textile or art-related field trip. Each weekly session concludes on Friday afternoon with an Open House where family and friends are invited to view projects on display!Each weekly session offers two options: weaving or surface design. Within each class, students will explore a project that incorporates many different skills. Surface Design: Surface Design is the application of design on a textile, whether a pattern or illustration, through printing, dyeing, or applique and embroidery. Children will explore a variety of media to textiles that will be used for a completed project.Groups will be divided loosely by age, and there will be slight variations week to week based on the number enrolled. Project will be age appropriate.
