Theme Camp Description

This camp was designed to help children develop creativity, problem solving skills and imagination. Children will have a great opportunity to present and exhibit art works that express their own creativity,

feelings and unique self-expression painting styles. They will learn how to use knowledge of structures and functions, the differences among visual characteristics and purposes of art to carry ideas.

Goals for classes:

1) Students will be able to demonstrate understanding of techniques, use different kind  of materials/techniques/processes/notations of each art form, and diverse cultural/historical contexts of the arts.

2) Help students discover their own unique painting styles and find out the most favorite technique. Children will learn the foundation of how to use tools and materials, developing skills, and inventing new ways to create.
