Description

Houseboats, to cruise ships, to entire floating cities! What would lifestyles be like if the oceans rise and land dwellers have to adapt to a buoyant environment? In this camp, students will investigate the real possibilities of living on the surface of Narragansett Bay. Students will brainstorm about issues of survival and sustainability, and explore the capabilities of wind, water and solar power. Using an array of sources, such as Peruvian floating reed islands, Buckminster Fuller's portable houses, futuristic architecture, and bridge designs, they will create their own floating community. The "art aquatic" ideas will come to life through a variety of art materials and techniques, such as drawing, painting, collage, printmaking and sculpture.

Description

Round and round your child goes, full of energy to devote to mischief (or to creative expression). This course provides that second choice, as they're introduced to foundation art forms like drawing, painting and sculpture in projects inspired by a familiar theme: the carousel. Young artists imagine the merry-go-round and the fantastic menagerie that make up the carnival attraction as they interpret those animals as characters in pencil, paint and clay. The final project is a showcase for all of their new skills as they create a vibrant sculptural animal in polymer clay and bring it home to share with family.

Description

Dinosaurs: gone but not forgotten, particularly in the imagination of young artists who often focus on these extinct creatures as their first creative obsession. This course will give students the opportunity to expand upon their existing knowledge of the T. rex, pterodactyls, marine reptiles and ceratopsians. Scientific facts and educated guesses provide the inspiration for projects in drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture as students build and craft art objects that are all definitely "dinosaurish."
