Summit Artspace Summer Camp - Up in the Air!

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 “Up in the Air”! 

Artists will draw, sculpt, weave and dream up flying figures like birds, blimps, balloons and skies filled with billowing clouds.  First day campers will be learning the process of papier mache - second day after their sculptures are fully dried they will begin transforming the pieces using various media.

Also on the second day, campers will get inspiration from the greats with Sarah leading 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 their projects for the day. Cost of camp is $95.00 (for both days.)
