THE NEXT FRONTIER 

June 6 – 10. Ages 7-12

Instructor: Sunny Ra

The Next Frontier is a camp where students will explore the magnanimous world of the deep ocean and outer space!  Using various papers, collage, markers, colored pencils and other dry media, students will propose their ideas of what underwater or outer space worlds could be like.  What kind of living things would exist?  What would they look like?  What do they eat?  Students will create their own worlds including the environment and the creatures that inhabit it.  The possibilities are limitless!


Painting Lab focuses on the young artist who needs the time and space to experiment with the wonders of paint. Students will work with a variety of media including watercolor, acrylic paint, and even house paint! Students will also use a variety of surfaces including paper, wood and canvas. Simple compositions will lead to experimentation with various approaches to painting and students will have the chance to experiment with non-traditional techniques. What happens when salt comes in to contact with watercolor? How can you use crayons and glue to create texture in an images? Your child will find the answers to these questions and more as people, places and things will come to life with quality materials and a little imagination!

With some scanning, planning, and Photoshop, students will illustrate and create their own one of a kind comic strip or graphic novel! Students will develop their drawing and inking techniques while creating characters, writing dialogue, and developing a basic storyline. The project will culminate with a lesson in bookbinding to create a finished piece!
