All Things Art

All Things Art @ the MAC

All Things Art @ the MAC returns for the 2022 summer camp season! This immersive weeklong program (multiple sessions available) takes place in late summer and is geared toward young artists ages 10-13. During their time in the Art Studio, young artists will experiment with a number of practices, techniques and media including drawing, sculpting, printmaking, fiber arts, working with clay, and more! Learn how to talk about art making and what inspires one's creative choices. Some class time will be spent outdoors, weather permitting.

Additionally, we've added a Sneak Peek week to All Things Art this year that will feature one workshop or activity per day.

The MAC may add additional projects or make some changes to the schedule of activities. The cost for all materials will be added into the registration total, but young artists may be encouraged to bring a few items from home. Each young artist will receive a sketchbook with registration.

Young artists should bring a water bottle and a bag lunch (or snack for the afternoon session) every day.

Sample Projects for the Week from 2021

Picasso Plates with Stephanie Sherman 
Young artists will create a colorful dinner plate and side dish inspired by the abstract style of Picasso. Participants will explore clay techniques including, slab, coil, and pinch. Final works will be decorated in underglazes and coated in a final clear glaze, resulting in funky, functional, food-safe tableware that will be enjoyed for many years!

Printing on Fabric with Shara Porter
Shara will bring forward thinking fashion and her design skills to the MAC while introducing students to the art of screen printing. Young artists will embellish t-shirts and vintage napkins using screen printing, fabric markers, and other methods, and will create their own unique stamps. Everyone will leave class with a one-of-a-kind, wearable piece of art!

Drawing with Dena Haden
Dena will lead two different drawing activities during the week. For one project, young artists will learn how to draw and create a comic. The second drawing project will include drawing from a still life and learning about certain elements and principles of design. Artists will use perspective, shading, and practice line drawing and mark making using charcoal and pencil. Students will draw outside when weather permits.

Sculptural Walking Sticks with Aylin Cetik
In this class, young artists will handcraft their dream walking stick by using materials such as clay, wool, felt, and leather. These embellished sticks will be perfect for hiking in the woods, walking on the beach, or just strolling down the street. No matter what style stick you craft, it will be a unique reminder to get moving!

Art Discussion with Kate Frazer Rego
Throughout the week, students will talk about their ideas for their projects, what they like about each others' choices, and new creative ideas. Art discussion breaks will take place outdoors on the MAC lawn when possible.

Currently masks are required for unvaccinated individuals. Please check here for any updates to our COVID-19 policies.
