Camp Kala • Acrylic Painting: Fantasy in the Frame • Ages 11-17

Learn the basics of painting (with a twist) as we develop our own imaginative and fantastical characters to bring to life with acrylic paint! We will move from paper to 3D forms to the canvas as we explore color theory, still life painting, creating physical references for paintings, and more. Through a mixed media approach, participants will work on their observational drawing/painting skills and challenge their notions of image-making as they move through both 2D and 3D art. All levels are welcome.

All levels are welcome; Instruction is provided to meet each student’s interests, needs, and strengths.
