For summer 2018, McLean Project for the Arts (MPA) is offering three unique summer camp opportunities for children and teens from 7 through 18. Art+Storytelling Does your child love hearing a story? Do you see them imagining and living out their favorite story characters? This summer, MPA is offering week-long art camps integrating classic elements of art with dramatic themes rooted in multicultural literary myths. Draw, print, collage, paint and construct your way through ancient and modern-day legends and myths from across the world, including Greek, Chinese, European and American traditions. Art making will emphasize the drama of each story through elements of art, color and line shape using a wide variety of mediums. Live readings, improv sessions and other theatrical activities will prompt campers to discover and interpret these stories. Campers of all artistic experience, ages 7-13 — are welcome! Monotype Printmaking for Teens Explore the exciting world of monotypes using a variety of techniques that include color blending, layering of images, inventive textural treatments and more as you create a beautiful series of prints. Students will work from a variety of sources for subject matter, including still life, landscape and abstract motifs and patterns. They’ll also explore Impressionist, Modernist and contemporary art sources for inspiration. Vosler Young Artists’ Studio @MPA For the third year, MPA is offering artist Kerry Vosler and her highly regarded atelier studio. This week-long workshop will introduce young artists to a classical atelier program of instruction. Students will draw a variety of pictures in charcoal throughout the week, including copy work from the late 19th century Barque-Gérôme Drawing Course, culminating in a session with a live model on Friday afternoon. Students will have at least two finished portfolio drawings by the end of the week.
