Week 8- Monday, August 13th

Motivated on the last Monday of CAM Create Camps!

WOW! We can’t believe this is our last week of art camp! We have met so many friends, and made so many projects. We’re not done yet- and today proved how serious we are about making art this week!

Mini Makers (Kindergarten)  spent their day rolling coils and molding clay! These young artists created some amazing coil vessels in response to their trip to the vault. The first day was a success!

DIY Textile Design (1+2) The first and second graders took at morning trip to the library today! They partnered up to look through some books that referenced some of the techniques they will be working with this week. In the afternoon, first and second graders created stencil designs for screen printing. Ask your camper about the silkscreen process!

3D Form & Function (3+4)  created wacky forms to store all their future art for the week. In the morning and afternoon, they planned and created their squishy wearables. They worked hard, understanding the process of design- SKETCH, TEMPLATE, MAKE!

Sculpt with Clay (5+6) campers got the chance to see their fired sculptures today! They spent the day glazing in preparation for another firing. Ask your camper about their favorite part of the day today!

Ceramics & Sculpture Teen campers began to glaze their “free sculptures” that they built last week. The glaze party has begun! Glazing allows for a colorful, waterproof, and shiny surface- ask your camper about the steps in creating with clay!
