Winter Holiday Art Camp for grades 2nd – 5th!
December 20 – 23 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Winter is a time for reflection and celebrating the wonders we have in our lives. This winter, explore the treasures of the season and create one-of-a-kind gifts, art and mementos of what is truly important. During this year’s Winter Holiday Art Camp, kids will craft unique holiday paintings, sculptures, printmaking and mixed media art explorations — all inspired by Ogden Museum’s current exhibits and the jubilee of the season. Sign up for one day, or all four days (if you sign up for four days, you save $20.00 off your total registration fee). Projects are fun, inventive and different each day.
Monday, December 20 – Sculpt!
Start off this fun art filled week by learning about sculptural buildings by artist Beverly Buchanan and how to construct your own three dimensional dwelling. Artists will learn about blueprints, different architectural views for drawing and how to create and embellish a wooden sculpture based on a familiar building in their life. In addition, each day artists will have time to work on a collaborative textile installation project inspired by the work of artist Tau Lewis.
Tuesday, December 21 – Collage!
Day two offers an opportunity to look closely at a familiar childhood story and some striking photographs. Artists will observe, sketch and discuss photographs by RaMell Ross and his use of gesture inspired by the artist and author Shell Silverstein. A deeper dive into the ideas of surrealism and gesture will be explored through drawing techniques and a photo collage. Artists will also contribute to a collaborative textile installation project inspired by the work of Tau Lewis.
Wednesday, December 22 – Paint!
Day three will be a painting exploration inspired by the artwork of artist Jennifer Packer. Artists will explore mixing colors, painting layers, patterns and human figures. This project will begin with smaller painting exercises on paper and lead up to a final large acrylic painting on canvas. Artists will also contribute to a collaborative textile installation project inspired by the work of Tau Lewis.
Thursday, December 23 – Sculpt!
Day four artists will look deeply at the work of Lonnie Holley and create a self-portrait wire sculpture collage. Artists will use their drawing skills to “draw in wire,” and then embellish their portraits with creative and inspiring supplies. The collaborative textile installation project inspired by the work of Tau Lewis will culminate on this last day. Artists will plan, hang and discuss their final collaborative project.
All four camps are full day events, so please bring a snack, water and lunch. Masks are required. Space is limited so register soon!
