3D Building

For kids 4–6 years
Class Times:
9:30am–12:00pm,
1:00pm–3:30pm

With TBD

In this camp you will work with a variety of materials to build and create unique and expressive 3D sculptures. You will look for simple and recognizable shapes and forms in recycled materials including cubes and prisms (boxes), cylinders (paper rolls) and spheres (balls) and use them to create more complex structures. Paying close attention to the relationships between the different pieces of your sculpture, you will learn how to create harmony and stability in your sculpture as a whole. Your resulting construction will be painted and decorated with a variety of different colourful and textural materials to give it a specific meaning or tell a special story from your life.

Nature's Architects: Plants & Flowers

For kids 6–9 years
Class Time: 9:30am–12:00pm

With Jeremy Stellato

Birds, ants, beavers, bees, snails, nautili, plants, flowers and much more—what did these Nature's Architects teach people about building and constructing? Learn how and why they create their homes and habitats, how and where they live, collect, use and store food, and how they hide and protect their young, comparing to how we as humans do these things.

Together we will enjoy trips outside observing and collecting natural materials to use in our art projects inspired by these wonderful and fascinating beings.

Introduction to Sculpting

For kids 6–9 years
Class Time: 1:00pm–3:30pm

With Jeremy Stellato

This course will introduce you to a wide variety of media and techniques for producing 2D and 3D sculpture.

You will have a great time in this hands-on course creating original sculptures using techniques such as wood carving as well as plaster, clay and plasticine modelling. With the guidance of your teacher you will improve your 3D thinking and planning abilities, dexterity and hand-eye coordination. You will also use natural materials you find outside to create imaginative landscapes and other 3D works. Printmaking and layering are other ways to explore 2D forms that students will engage in as they explore the relationship between the two realms.

This course is especially recommended for students who intend to take Portfolio Building in the future.

Drawing the Human Form

For kids 7–11 years

With Azadeh Pirazimian

We begin our study of the human form by looking at our own hands and feet, learning about human anatomy and basic proportions. Through techniques such as contouring and body tracing you will develop awareness of positive and negative space, and by using the grey scale you will develop observational drawings of wooden mannequins, yourself and your peers.
