Week 5: Animal Anatomy - Drawing, Painting & Sculpture [In Person]

Week 5: Animal Anatomy - Drawing, Painting & Sculpture [In Person]
Ages: 13 yrs. to 16 yrs.

Animal drawing and sculpture has captured the artist's imagination throughout history. In this week long art studio, explore color and form through the lens of animal anatomy. Participants in this week long camp will study pencil, pen and charcoal through animal sketching, learn how to render fur and scales through painting, and demonstrate movement and expression with careful markmaking. In the second half of the day, students will gain a further understanding of the underlying skeletal anatomy through sculptural ceramics, creating a full day of focused study on animalia.

Emergency Forms
Please make sure to fill out the emergency form below if you haven’t already – here: emergency/medical form at your earliest convenience. 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 beverage 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 do not pack any food items with nuts or nut product in them. We do not allow any campers to share snacks or drinks.
