Art with Heart – Summer Art Camp 2017

June 6 - July 28

Save the Date: Registration will begin on April 18, 2017!

This summer at the Renee Foosaner Education Center, we are adding a little more beauty to the world as we create Art with Heart!! Learning how to creatively care can make a BIG difference in our lives and in the world around us. In the spirit of art as a social voice, we will protect the beauty of animals and the natural world. We will find exciting ways to share our passions and learn to make courageous creative choices. We will make collaborative artwork with our friends, produce art that cultivates peace, and learn how to take care of our own hearts using the creative process.

Philosophy

Foosaner Art Museum's unique summer art camps for kids emphasize learning through direct observation of art and thoughtful art activities designed by professional art instructors and inspired by current exhibitions and the permanent collection.

Activities include everything from art making in the traditional sense to mixed media exploration. Each week, campers accompany their instructors on a field trip to the galleries, observing and learning about how professional artists created their work. Following the visits, they will then create their own artwork in the Renee Foosaner Education Center studios.

The summer program is composed of themed camps in the morning with a concentration on specific media in the afternoon. This gives the campers a chance to learn about different areas of art. Campers can choose to enjoy a half-day program or an all-day program with themed camp in the morning and media specific art classes in the afternoon.

Scholarships

Scholarships to cover the cost of camp tuition are available based on financial need and artistic merit. Scholarships are awarded on a first come first serve basis.

Tracey Hnat is an artist, a teacher and a yogini who finds inspiration through life experiences. As an artist, she finds an extraordinary interest in portraying people in their strength and beauty and accentuating that beauty with something mystical. "Art is about discovery, its about reveling in the imperfections, playing with the unknown and taking risks with techniques that may be unconventional but always resulting in a unique product. As a teacher I try to find that uniqueness in each student and teach them how to bring that out in their art. Teaching the foundation and building through techniques and skills. I thoroughly enjoy sharing what I know and learning from my students as well!"
