ABOUT THE CLASS: We will work in watercolor, ink, color markers, crayons, and acrylic. Each child will receive individual instruction as well as group instruction. Campers will learn about Picasso and we will create a Picasso-inspired 3D “self-image." We will learn about the ancient art of sumi-e painting, as well as new projects every day.  These camps are very interactive and great fun for children. It has been described as “the best week of my life" by former campers!
