An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until June 22, 2023
6/19-6/22 “Paw-casso” Inspired by pets, pinch clay into animal sculptures, learn painting techniques on both ceramics and wood and fuse glass into an abstract portrait of your favorite furry friend. This week is full of fur and scales!
We now have a single day option! For Tuesday and/or Wednesday only campers, 2 projects are created per day in Fused Glass, Ceramics or a non-fired medium (like acrylic painting), these projects will also get to participate in the Tuesday evening art show. Camp hours are the same as full week campers, drop off is at 9am and pick up at 11:45am.
Projects we make on Mondays get painted on Thursdays, so we cannot offer a single day option for those days.
Summer Camp: The basics
The Ceramic Studio Etc strives to provide a fun and explorative art experience for budding artists! Our fun and creative camp staff will inspire artists to draw, paint, squish and splatter their way to a masterpiece each day. Campers will work in a variety of art mediums each week. Every week we will explore: clay hand building techniques, fused glass introduction, ceramic painting techniques and art journaling. Depending on the theme for the week we may also sprinkle in: canvas painting with acrylics, watercolor painting, board art, mixed media collage, metal tooling, alcohol inks and more!
Every week has a minimum of 6 completed projects to take home, some of which may need to be picked up the following week after firing. Campers can choose to leave all of their projects with us for our Tuesday night Art Show! Every Tuesday evening from 5-7pm, we will have a mini art show where campers can show off their completed projects. Campers can pick up their projects and share their mini-gallery with their friends and family! Should you be unable to attend the Tuesday Art Show, we will hold camper projects for a maximum of 30 days, please make arrangements to pick up all completed projects within that time frame.
Who: Aside from our last week of camp, all camps are appropriate for artists entering 1st grade and up. Our BOHO tween camp at the end of the summer is especially for ages 10 and up. We understand that every child is different, and may be mature for their age. However, our camps are geared to the ages specified (meaning it may be difficult to make some or most of the projects without more staff assistance). Please respect our age requirements.
When: Camp runs from 9am to 12pm. Artists are welcome to check-in starting at 8:50am and will need to be picked up no later than 12pm. There is a $1/minute fee for late pick up, please let us know if you are running late.
What to bring/wear: Art camp can be messy! We encourage artists to wear comfortable clothes that are ok to get stained or bring a smock t-shirt for when we use non-washable materials. A water bottle and snack labeled with artist’s name is also encouraged.
Cost: is $175 per artist, which includes all materials, firing of projects and Tuesday night Art Shows.
