HILL CENTER

Campers concentrate on their paper creations.

This week at the Hill Center, campers worked their imaginations in Story Illustration and Mermaids, Monsters, and Sea Creatures. Campers in Story Illustration learned how to tell a story from start to finish! These artists designed their own unique stories, illustrated them, and created several different kinds of “books.” Our Mermaids, Monsters, and Sea Creatures campers took a dive under the ocean to learn about mythical sea creatures. They created 2D and 3D projects inspired by their adventures.

Our Georgetown campers went on a whirlwind of adventures this week in Around the World, Circus, Flower Power, and Animal Menagerie. Artists in Around the World travelled to all seven continents, stopping to construct towering totem poles and dance to African drums. Our Circus campers created works of art featuring spectacular sights and bright lights and drew inspiration from If I Ran the Circus by Dr. Seuss. Campers became one with nature this week in Flower Power as they created paintings and mixed media works based on flowers, bringing their art to life with fabulous and flamboyant flower hats. Our brave Animal Menagerie artists went on an expedition with wild animals, making masks, mythical creatures, and sculptures.

 

DOWNTOWN

This week, Downtown campers focused on the figure in Fashion Illustration and Figure Drawing. Artists in Fashion Illustration used a variety of media to begin a portfolio of their own fashion line, inspired by personal influences and research on styles and trends. In Figure Drawing, campers worked with a model to capture the human form through quick gesture drawing and longer poses.
