Indoor-outdoor camps held on a mini farm allow kids to explore their creativity with paints or sculpting materials and take home their creations once they’re finished. Students experiment with watercolors, pastels, acrylics, and oils during the painting camp, and use polymer, air-dried clay, and metallic patinas to create 3-D works of art during the sculpture camp.<p>
Art Student Academy
Professional artists M. Theresa Brown and Stephen Filarsky channel more than 20 years of experience at the easel to guide students during two-hour art workshops, parties, and afterschool kids’ programs. Workshops elucidate the process of re-creating stunning artworks that depict abstract felines, rustic tobacco barns, and fractals grazing in wintry landscapes. The instructors supply all of the materials and techniques needed to craft masterworks, and encourage participants to hang their take-home paintings in high-traffic hallways. Adult students supply their own beverages at select BYOB classes, and young aesthetes expand their horizons in kids’ classes that encompass drawing, painting, sculpting, and telekinetic printing.
