Portrait Painting


Teen Summer Art Institute Registration

In this immersive camp, teens ages 13 - 18 will spend half-days (9am - 12pm) focusing on honing their craft in one major art-making discipline– drawing, painting, pottery, and digital imaging. Each camp will focus on the skills and techniques unique to each discipline: simple line drawings will become comic book illustrations, basic painterly strokes will transform into detailed compositions, balls of clay are molded into functional and beautiful masterpieces, and technology basics will be used to craft thoughtful and thought-provoking finished photographs.
