All color mediums will incorporate color theory lessons. Along with working in our SUNNY ART STUDIO, and BACK YARD, our teaching staff will take campers to Central Park to do PLEIN AIR drawing and painting by observing the beauty CENTRAL PARK has to offer weather permitting. TOPICS EXPLORED will be inspired by viewing, and discussing, master artworks from artists past to the present day in order to inspire, imagined or artworks from observation. Campers will be taught FINE ART SKILLS and CONCEPTS such as line, line quality, surface tension, shape, form, perspective, and color theory while drawing and painting from observation, and/or imagination.
