Camp Kala • Nature Play: Mixed Media Exploration • Ages 5-10
Investigate the natural world through art! We will explore color, shape, and texture using mixed media including paint, collage, and sculpture. Artists will experiment with new materials, practice getting inspiration from the world around them, and express their ideas creatively.
Scout Sheys is a printmaker, teaching artist, and plant nerd who has been involved with Kala for several years. Scout has worked in art programs across the country, including Pyramid Atlantic Art Center in Maryland, and Zea Mays Printmaking, a nontoxic studio in Massachusetts. Scout graduated from Smith College, where she majored in Studio Art and minored in the Study of Women and Gender. A Maryland native, she currently lives in Oakland with her partner, various housemates, and two magical cats. When she isn’t busy printmaking, drawing zines, or writing letters, Scout can be found exploring the East Bay by bicycle and collecting old books. She is also an avid knitter and bread baker and fluent in Spanish.
