SUMMER ART CAMPS 2019

340.00

Art Camp is Winnipeg's #1 Summer Art Program for ages 6 - 12 
Art Camp is an exciting opportunity to work with professional artists and create with confidence.

Work in small groups 
Limited enrollment lets us encourage each child's creative efforts and foster their interest in art. Our programs emphasize personal instruction and age-appropriate activities. 

Kids deserve more than arts & crafts 
so we developed a program which gives them the opportunity to explore a variety of real art media in a creative setting. Let Art Camp turn your child's summer into a season of creative expression and artistic accomplishment. We encourage children to learn, exercise their imaginations and have fun through challenge and achievement. We use only professional quality art materials. Egg cartons and popsicle sticks are simply not on our palette! All materials are provided.

Students will experience a huge variety of art media and techniques including:

Drawing
Learn the essentials of drawing through a variety of materials. By working in small groups we are able to teach valuable skills, encourage each child's creative efforts and foster their interests.

Painting
From colour theory to painting technique, children will exercise their imaginations and increase their ability of self-expression.

Sculpture
Explore some three dimensional opportunities. This year, sculpture projects will include kiln fired clay - plus mixed media constructions using a variety of materials. Masters like Frank Stella, Red Grooms and other great artists will provide the inspiration.

Cartooning
Explore techniques of the world's great illustrators and animators.

Animation & the Art of Film
Learn the art of claymation. Plan the shot, focus the camera and direct the action. Sculpt, Shoot, Import, Edit and Upload animated films. Animations will be shared on the Paradise Art Youtube Channel.

 Things to Bring:    
- bagged lunch (No nut products!)  
- drinks / water bottle  
- snacks (No nut products!)   
- smocks are available but we recommend students wear paint-friendly (not your best, easily washed) clothing

Parking  
You may use the lane and our back door. We have 2 spaces for loading. Please do not use our neighbours’ parking areas

Starbucks & Sushi (Optional)  
We love being on Academy Road and will accompany students to our local Starbucks at Academy & Lanark on Friday if a note and sufficient money are provided. If you are tired of making bagged lunches by the end of the week - we also will accompany students to Sushi California on Friday to purchase a take-out lunch if a note and sufficient money are provided. 

Outdoor Activities:
We try to take a short break outside for some daily fresh air. Generally, we walk to the parks at Wellington Crescent & Renfrew Street or take the bridge to Omand's Creek. Outings depend on weather - and the progress of our art projects.

Sculptures & Films:
Firing takes a few weeks and has to be done between camps. We will email you when sculptures are ready for pick up. 

Live action films or photos will be shown to students as part of Art Camp for learning and fun. We do not share photos or personal information. Animated (claymation) films will be uploaded to Youtube/paradiseart for viewing. Past films can also be viewed on our Channel.
