MPA Summer Camp Week 4- Exploring Color (Ages 9-13)
Week 4: Exploring Color
July 17 - 21, 9am - 12pm

Campers will delve into the world of hue, shade, tint, value and intensity. Starting from the “color wheel”, we will draw and drip paint on paper and canvas with colorful layers of paint, oil pastel and collage. We will experiment with different types of 2D printing and use pencil, pen, watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media. Learn about exciting artists such as Jackson Pollock, Morris Louis, and other contemporary artists who use various techniques in their works.
Campers should bring a snack and water each day. If attending a full day, campers should also bring lunch. Please no nuts.
Fridays will be gallery day! Please prepare to show up 15 minutes before pick-up to view the gallery show. Full-day campers: Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before the Afternoon session.
