Awesome Masterpieces (Age 5-10)
Lets Create it! This camp will include work in a number of different art forms including:
Paper Mache Party - Design and sculpt amazing figures inspired by nature is this week’s camp theme. Watch your visions, drawings, & creations come to life and transform into a 3D object.
Drawing and Painting –Create realistic drawings from live models (last summer included a real rabbit!). Use basic art theory like complementary colours, line, tone and shading to learn how to draw people, animals and imaginary creatures with a variety of mediums.
Clay Creations – Let your imagination soar, to create and sculpt fantastic creatures and wacky objects out of colourful clay. Using non-toxic moulding clay that can be fired in the family oven, this skill can be easily brought home for your future artistic works!
Up-Cycle Madness! – What some folks see as junk, our artists see as material for Up Cycle Madness! Create amazing artwork and functional wares out of found and used materials. Don’t’ throw it away, it’ll be Art, when the Design Works Artists are done creating awesome masterpieces with it!
Every Friday afternoon at 3:45pm, UNB’s Design Works in Saint John hosts an exhibition of the children’s work. Parents and family are invited to attend this one-of-a-kind gallery show to view their children’s masterpieces and enjoy juice and snacks.
