Big Messy Art Camp for Kids - Week 2
Mon, Jun 12, 2017, 9:00 AM – Wed, Jun 14, 2017, 10:00 AM EDT
This is a fun and very hands on camp for young children ages 3-4.
Over the course of the three days students will complete three projects.
Day 1: Cave Art
Materials: brown bulletin board paper, compressed charcoal, rocks, cave art library book
Day 2: Michaelangelo “Ceiling” Painting
Materials: 12”x18” paper, masking tape, brushes, tempera paints, safety goggles, image reference, tables or chairs to attach paper to
Day 3: Jackson Pollock “Action Painting”
Materials: 18”x24” paper, brushes, tempera paints, image reference, outdoor space (weather permitting)
If rain is an issue, then this project can be altered for indoor completion (using cooked spaghetti). I can also change the order of projects to accommodate the weather forecast.
Students will need to wear old shoes/clothes. Be aware that your child may have so much fun the possibility of paint in their hair or charcoal on their face is good!
Students must be potty trained.
