    Explore a variety of printmaking processes such as screen printing, relief, and monotype. During this camp you will work independently and collaboratively, learning how to prepare printing surfaces, mix ink, layer color, and create unique imagery, patterns, and textures through the printmaking process. Each day you will be guided through a creative writing prompt to help generate ideas for your unique imagery. Once you accumulate prints, you will learn the steps to constructing your own hand-made hardcover book, which will house your visual and written art.
  • Ceramics: June 20 - June 24, 10AM - 4PM

    Southwest Virginia has a rich history of ceramics arts. In this camp, you’ll bring past to present, working with clay to create your own unique vessels. Explore hand-building, wheel throwing, texture-making, underglazing, and more! Please note: creations must dry fully, be bisque fired, and then glaze fired in the kiln before you can take home work. The firing process will occur after the camp ends. Campers should plan to pick up finished fired work a few weeks after this camp.

  • Anime and Manga Foundations with Allison Parker: July 11 - July 15, 10AM - 4PM

The week begins with a brief history of manga and anime-style art originating from Japan. With the objective of developing a unique style, each camper will learn the foundations of becoming an anime-style artist. Campers will practice drawing the figure and anatomy, scenery sketching, color design, lighting for mood, and concept brainstorming strategies. Collaboration and teamwork will be encouraged through fun drawing games and acting out scenes for figure drawing reference. Campers are encouraged to bring costumes, props, action figures, and other objects to draw from!
