Elements of Art Summer Camps
Calling young artists!
Now in its third year, Elements of Art Summer Camps at Laguna Art Museum explore the elements of line, shape, form, space, color, and texture. Students learn about each element by creating their own unique works of art, while being inspired by the art on display in the museum. Camps are open to ages five through twelve, and projects vary in complexity according to the student’s age. (For example, older students have the opportunity to concentrate on foundation skills in drawing and painting.) Because projects are tied to the art on view in the museum, which changes frequently, this summer’s projects and lessons are different from those in previous years. The curriculum is also different from week to week, so students can sign up for more than one session.
All camps are age specific. Camps 1 and 3 are designed for 5 – 8 year-olds while camps 2 and 4 are for 9 – 12 year-olds. According to the museum’s Education Assistant Kayla Gephart this new structure will help ensure that the complexity of projects is age appropriate.
The ratio of participants to teachers is approximately 5:1 so there will be plenty of personalized attention. The popularity of the museum’s summer art camp programs has increased each of the previous two years. Marinta Skupin, the museum’s Curator of Education stated, “We are very excited to offer Elements of Art summer camps for the third year in a row. Parents have already started to inquire about this year’s camps and we foresee record enrollment numbers.”
