Campers will explore various materials, drawing from the season and our environment for inspiration. They may make found-object faces after gathering materials outside, sun prints on a clear day, or melted watercolor paintings on a rainy one. Campers will play collaborative art games like pass the portrait, as well as build on their own individual projects throughout the week. Experiments will include traditional art materials like oil pastels, ink or charcoal, as well as more unconventional mark makers such as grass or sticks from the yard. We will look at subjects in the summer light to spark ideas and make new things – the rainbows in a sprinkler or soap bubbles floating past.
Dates: June 24-28
Location: Rhizome DC, 6950 Maple St NW DC (Takoma)
