St. Augustine Art Association Summer Art Camps
St. Augustine Art Association Summer Art Camps held in June are for children in grades 1 through 6. The weekly half-day sessions introduce art principles and explore creative projects in painting, drawing, sculpture and mixed media inspired by master artists. Taught by professional art educators with the assistance of volunteer high school counselors, the camps are held at the St. Augustine Art Association.
The weekly sessions are Monday through Friday, June 3-28, from 9:00am-12:00pm.
Session One — June 3-7 — Dali Meets Dolly – When master artist, Salvador Dali meets country icon Dolly Parton, Surrealism goes honky tonk! Crazy quilts of many colors, Dali-Dolly selfies and ‘9 to 5’ clocks are reinvented in this dreamy art adventure.
Session Two — June 10-14 — A Tree For Me – Leafy giants awaken the imagination in this enchanted forest. From seedlings to the great Sequoias, the magic of trees appears when our “art-borists” create whimsical totems, eco-prints and fiber works.
Session Three — June 17-21 — Farm Out! – Old MacDonald never imagined a farm like this! Inspired by the rural art of Grant Wood, kids roll up their sleeves to craft folk-art animals, colorful big-barn landscapes and American Gothic styled portraits.
Session Four — June 24-28 — Ooh-La-Lautrec – Bohemian Paris comes to life through the colorful works of Henri Toulouse Lautrec. Dancers, horses and circus characters make a grand entrance as Art Nouveau-Post Impressionist inspired projects. Bienvenue!
Art Camp concludes with a whimsical installation of works produced by all of the young artists. It will be on display one night only during the First Friday Art Walk, July 5, 2019.
The fee for each session is $150, including supplies. Discounts may apply. Space is limited! Call 904-824-2310 or click on the event website link for more information and to register online.
