Bouncy Bendy Art in Motion
Art-ventures with a totally unique twist! Make masterpieces with real moving parts, create the illusion of movement, and discover art processes that use motion to get amazing results.

Sculpt goofy Clay Monsters, craft Bendy Paper Lizards, and paint Seascapes like Monet. Create Matisse Watercolor Banners, Fireworks Flower Pots, and Textured Tissue Paper art. Design Kaleidoscopes, Dancing Pasta Sculptures, and Scribble T-shirts. Draw zany self-portraits inspired by Silberzweig, and decorate Cupcake Boxes with fluffy frosting and sprinkles. With a focus on color, shape, and MOTION, this program will have you jumping for joy!

Grr...Buzz...Hiss...Roar ART-ventures 
Animal lovers and art explorers, take a walk on the wild side. Visit the jungle, go on safari and even travel back in time to the Dinosaurs. Discover where your creativity will take you while creating 2 and 3-dimensional butterflies, birds, snakes, frogs and lizards, lions and countless other kooky creatures!  Paint 3-D wooden dinosaur puzzles, build giraffe pencil holders, and create super cool boxes disguised as elephants. Plus, design your very own animal t-shirt using a totally unique “hands-on” technique, and so much more! Campers use an amazing variety of art materials, textures and techniques while experimenting with clay and paints, ceramic and fabric art, wood, oil pastels, stenciling, collage, watercolor, decoupage and more. These cool and playful art-ventures include fun facts about the animals, storytelling, and always humor.
