Week 7: Figure Studies - Drawing & Sculpture [In Person]

Week 7: Figure Studies - Drawing & Sculpture [In Person]
Ages: 13 yrs. to 16 yrs.

This two-part intensive week is focused on 2D and 3D figure studies. The first session will be dedicated to learning and practicing techniques to render surface anatomy in 2D. Participants will then study the underlying skeletal structure of the human figure to prepare for figure sculpture in the following 3D session. They will learn gesture, proportion, and anatomy through the observation of a plaster model and demonstrations. Examining the work of classicism to more recent works of the 20th century, artists will learn a full-range of possible figural expressions for consideration and develop the technical and self-critical skills to successfully shape their work and achieve volume in their figurative forms as they gain an understanding of the human portrait and figure.

The emergency/medical form must be completed and returned to ACP. Emergency forms must be received before your child can start camp. Please return these forms in a timely manner as we need to process each camper’s information. If your child has already attended a week of camp this year, you do not need to complete another form.


Lunch, snacks and beverages are not included. Please send your camper with a lunch, mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack. Full-day students will need to bring snacks, lunch and beverages each day. Include an insulated lunch bag, if necessary; we do not have on-site refrigeration.



Due to many campers having nut allergies, we ask that you not pack any food items with nuts or nut products in them. We do not allow any campers to share snacks or drinks.
