Art in the Park: Making Masterpieces With Great Artists CAMP
This class is all about making connections between art history, art appreciation, and most importantly art creation. Each day we will learn about an artist and their life. We will incorporate history, geography, and the social, political, and spiritual ideology that contributed to the artists’ work. Students will look at a variety of artwork by the week’s artist and discuss the techniques and materials used as well as the art genre the artist falls into. Finally, students will create a piece of artwork that imitates the style, techniques, or subject matter of each artist.
**Based on my popular weekly class, Art in the Park: Making Masterpieces With Great Artists.
Each class will begin with a short 15-20 minute presentation about the life and work of an artist. And the pièces de résistance: Students will be guided through the creation of their own, original artwork that imitates the style, techniques, or subject matter of the artist.
I introduce students to different art tools and materials and encourage them to experiment. This experimentation gives students new and innovative ways of seeing art and gives them the chance to try unique techniques.
We will study the following artists:
- Day 1 – Claude Monet
- Day 2 – Vincent van Gogh
- Day 3 – Pablo Picasso
- Day 4 – Jackson Pollock
- Day 5 – Frida Kahlo

*Some parental assistance required depending on the age and maturity of the student(s).
All projects are designed to fit within the allotted class time, but depending on the attention to detail and interest of the student(s), some classes run over while others can run short. We rarely run over/short more than 10-15 minutes and always makeup in our average.
