Summit Artspace Summer Camp - “ARTchitecture” 

Start off your day getting your creative juices flowing with Sarah Gott, local children’s art educator with her “Creative Warm-ups.”  These warm-ups include building art journals, drawing prompts, and action art!  Following this the morning workshop begins.  This week’s workshop is for ARTchitecture!  (Please note, campers will use hot glue guns and parents will need to sign waiver forms.)

Students will learn about architecture and basic building principles (i.e. trusses/triangles) in creating multi-level sculptures. 

To get inspiration from the greats, Sarah will lead a guided tour of the Akron Art Museum’s collection.  Campers are encouraged to ask questions and interacting with art.  (i.e. campers will take their art journals with them and will draw the art that inspires them.)

Following this tour, campers will return back to Summit Artspace and finish and finish their projects for the day.

Pieces will be installed in the Transition Gallery and an exhibition on Friday, June 17th from 5 to 8pm will be held.  All campers, family and friends are welcome to both the reception and the exhibition. Cost of camp is $50.00
