Week 8: Tour (Thursday)

Students in both Studio D and C learned more about “making art from feeling”  while venturing through the current Chris Martin exhibit spaces in the gallery. Participating in group activities and discussions, campers manipulated paper swatches and found-objects to help interpret and relay their own emotional responses to their favorite pieces. Intertwined within the paintings are feelings tied to memories of people, places and lived experiences that all student campers could appreciate and relate to during the tour.

Week 8: Digital Art (Wednesday)

Studio D campers continued to work through their independent “family crest” projects today, concentrating on meeting their midweek design goals. Using a digital tablet device to wield designs by hand, Isabella Isacco enrich her art with personal symbols that represent her interests, hobbies and family members. Other campers, like Courtney Davis, also take advantage of the lab time and technology by carefully embellishing personal sketches that have long awaited digital makeovers. No matter the level of experience, however, each student continues to learn and become inspired by their peers and teachers.

Week 8: Printmaking (Wednesday)

Campers take relief printmaking to a new level by learning the tools and methods of stamp making. Using linoleum cutters, original sketches, and paint,  each student was then able to create numerous stamps ranging from small designs to large portraits, landscapes and other abstract works.

Week 8: Digital Animation (Tuesday)

Progressing through the finer details of designing their animations, students continue to learn more about the program functions as well as more innovative ways of interpreting their planned designs. Though hard at work and focused in mind, a few small breaks outside were always a welcoming experience for tired eyes and weary backs.
