Summer Camp 2013
Have Art, Will Travel!
Summer is almost here, so pack your bags with paints, brushes, and your creative spirit because the Renee Foosaner Education Center wants to take you on a cultural journey to every corner of the earth! On this art-making expedition you’ll take in all the sights as instructors inspire you to create art in response to the Egyptian pyramids, beautiful Japanese origami, the vibrant work of New York City, the plein air painters of Paris, and much, much more. Discover how art can catapault you across the globe this summer at the Renee Foosaner Education Center!
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.
Each of the summer art camps introduces students to the fundamental concepts of art and also to some of the ideas and techniques explored by humankind: from early pre-historic to contemporary art. Each week, campers explore the concepts and techniques of art, discover the various ways to use them, and create individual masterpieces as well as collaborative group projects at the Renee Foosaner Education Center. Instructor-led tours of the gallery, brainstorms with local artists and class discussion further enrich the experience.
