Kids Camp 2017
Art Camp For Kids Ages 7-13
July 10-August 11
9am to 2pm • Five days per week • Sign up for any combination of weeks.
Bass Arts Summer Art camp offers children the opportunity to experiment with a variety of media in a nurturing environment which encourages each child’s individual self expression. While our emphasis is on the creative process, children are encouraged to realize their vision in the form of completed pieces culminating in an art exhibit at the weeks end.
We aim to to equip students with the technical tools they need to express and articulate their ideas. Children will develop skills while learning to trust their intuition.
Campers will create three art projects per week. The projects will be inspired by art from all over the world. Children will learn about art history and culture through lecture and discussion, and by looking at examples of art, listening to music sculpture, printmaking and paper mache.
All campers need to bring a bag lunch and a mid-morning snack. They will have ample time to eat and play outside, so please have them bring sunscreen.
