Summer Art Camp for Teens


Get up-close and spy the world from above exploring different perspectives this week at art camp! Teens (6th - 8th graders in fall) will learn techniques to portray different points of view, study topography and geography, look at maps and navigation, and create 3D and optical illusion art. Projects and activities will include drawing, comics, painting, sculpture, photography, physical movement, and performance art. Focus will be paid to artists in the Tinworks exhibition working within perspective as we tour the show and learn about their methods of an art-making. Shift your perspective with this mind bending week! Registration opens March 1st.

Information for Campers

COSTS AND CANCELLATIONS Spaces for Tinworks’ summer camps are limited, and registration is required. The cost for each participant is $150 for this camp. If a camp fills at the maximum of 16 campers per session, you can select the option to be added to a waitlist. Refunds, minus a processing fee, will be given for cancellations only if requested 30 days before the start of camp. We will not refund for absences or behavioral dismissals. Needs-based scholarships are available and can be discussed upon request on a case by case basis.

WHAT TO BRING AND KNOW Campers are required to bring a water bottle, snack, and sunscreen each day. Campers are welcome to arrive between 8:45am - 9am each day and must be picked up by 12:15pm, or incur a $10 late fee. Tinworks Art staff reserves the right to dismiss disruptive campers or those with significant behavioral difficulties. Please fill out our camp form a week before camp starts. All art projects will be displayed and celebrated with a small reception at 11:30am on the last day of camp.
