SAINT AUGUSTINE – Registration is underway for the St. Augustine Art Association Summer Art Camps that begin in June. For children in grades 1 through 6, the weekly half-day sessions introduce art principles and explore creative projects in painting, drawing, sculpture and mixed media inspired by master artists. Taught by professional art educators with the assistance of volunteer high school counselors, the camps are held at the St. Augustine Art Association, 22 Marine Street.
SESSION ONE: JUNE 3 – 7 (9am-Noon)
DALI MEETS DOLLY
When master artist, Salvador Dali meets country icon Dolly Parton, Surrealism goes honky tonk! Crazy quilts of many colors, Dali-Dolly selfies and “9 to 5” clocks are reinvented in this dreamy art adventure.
SESSION TWO: JUNE 10 – 14 (9am-Noon)
A TREE FOR ME
Leafy giants awaken the imagination in this enchanted forest. From seedlings to the great Sequoias, the magic of trees appears when our “art-borists” create whimsical totems, eco-prints and fiber works.
SESSION THREE: JUNE 17 – 21 (9am-Noon)
Old MacDonald never imagined a farm like this! Inspired by the rural art of Grant Wood, kids roll up their sleeves to craft folk-art animals, colorful big-barn landscapes and American Gothic styled portraits.
SESSION FOUR: JUNE 24 – 28 (9am – Noon)
Bohemian Paris comes to life through the colorful works of Henri Toulouse Lautrec. Dancers, horses and circus characters make a grand entrance as Art Nouveau-Post Impressionist inspired projects. Bienvenue!
