Summit Artspace Summer Camp - Mud Makers!

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 “Mud Makers”! 

 Discover the messy qualities of clay! We’ll throw it, sculpt it and wear it! Henna, Potter’s wheel and clay jewelry.  Potter’s wheel is done on the first day of the camp (and pieces will be fired in preparation for the second day.)

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.)
