Reverse Portrait Paintings on Acetate with Ellie Martin:
Summer Camp participants will learn how to use art elements and principles of design such as color, texture, positive and negative space, and balance, emphasis, and contrast to create reverse portrait paintings. Students will pose for a photograph that will then be printed for use during the project.
Make a monotype & create a sketchbook/journal with Jim Jereb:
Making a Monotype: This fun print technique combines drawing, painting, and printmaking to create a one-of-a-kind image.
Creating a Sketchbook/Journal: Traditional signature construction with case-bound hard covers. Folding, gluing and stapling to create a book with blank pages that work great for sketching and writing one’s own stories and thoughts.
Make a nature-inspired pendant or keychain with Stephanie Zier:
Students will make a nature-inspired pendant or keychain fob out of silver metal clay. Metal clay is made from silver dust and a natural binder. It is first worked like clay, then fired in a kiln to transform it into solid silver. We will begin by exploring the Brinton grounds to identify some of the native foothills plants. Each student will design and make a unique piece of jewelry using the plant that inspires them.
All materials will be provided. No toxic substances will be used.
