Learn the value of self-expression and the positive outlet that art making can be with artist instructor, Kristina Estell. Campers will explore art from all angles; exploring techniques in paper marbling, collage, drawing, painting and sculpture. Learn the ancient Japanese art of Suminiagashi paper marbling, collage, and painting techniques. Using plaster and found objects from nature, campers will create a self portrait. Inspired by the work of artist, Sarah Sze, campers will create a "small world" using objects found from nature, cardboard and everyday household items. Campers will go on a virtual studio visit mid-week with a guest artist!
