This year, Art Omi offers a mini Spring Art Camp to keep kids active, creative, and outdoors! Join for one or more mornings of exploration and art-making, led by teaching artists. Each session features an outdoor activity, a hike through the Sculpture & Architecture Park, and an art project related to a daily theme.

Children will be required to wear masks, wash and sanitize hands, and adhere to social distancing rules. Children bring a picnic lunch, water bottle, and their own blanket or towel to sit on. This program is limited to 12 participants per day.

Course dates:

  • July 6 - 9 (no camp on July 5th)
  • July 12 - 16

In this course we will build expressive drawing skills using the landscape and sculpture at Art Omi as reference and inspiration. Using a range of media including charcoal, pencil, ink, and pastel we will explore fundamental 2 dimensional art principles such as perspective, value, form and texture. Expanding our understanding of observational drawing, we will experiment with scale, format, and subject matter in order to find unique modes of personal expression. Our studio time will consist of quick sketches and drawing games, viewing work by contemporary and historical artists, and extended individual projects throughout the sculpture park. Materials included in tuition fee. No experience necessary! For teens age 12 - 16.
