Children ages 5-12 are invited to monkey around and have a roarin' good time at the 8th annual Art For Kids summer art camp titled, "Animals in Art!"
The week-long day camp will begin with a fieldtrip to Out of Africa where students will capture photos and/or do sketches of their favorite animals. Using artist-grade supplies such as fiber clay, acrylics on canvas, inks, graphite, charcoal and pastels students will create artistic works of animals, both real and imagined. Equal emphasis is placed on process and product, helping students to focus their energy to create their best work. Each lesson will be led by a professional artist including Joan Bourque, Cheryl Heimer, and Joani Wolter. The last day of camp will culminate with an art show and potluck lunch for the families and public where each young artist will present an exhibit and a portfolio of photos and sketches of animals.
Daily "animal yoga poses" will be led by certified yoga instructor Amber Martinez. "Warming up with yoga really helps wake up sleepyheads and gives them the energy and focus to create amazing art...besides it is good fun!" says volunteer director Zenna MacGregor.
Students will also learn about famous masters and their works of art that feature animals such as Andy Warhol's "Grevy's Zebra" and Paul Klee's "Cat and Bird." Camp runs from July 9-13 and meets daily, M-F, from 9 am-Noon, at the Sedona Arts Center. Space is limited and registration begins May 1st. Cost is $199, includes all supplies and fieldtrip fees. Limited scholarship assistance is available to families that demonstrate need. For registration information or to see videos and photos of past summer art camps: www.artforkidssedona.com
