Have you ever wondered how to capture the wonder and beauty of nature in your artwork, but at the same time express your feelings about what you see? A beautiful seascape can be peaceful, exciting or even terrifying, depending on how an artist paints the scene. In this course, young artists develop their artistic voice while creating artwork that expresses a range of feelings and multiple views of a subject. In the process, the course builds basic art and design skills, and encourages young artists to explore a variety of media.

Celebrated throughout history, carnivals combine elements of a circus, parade, public street party and masquerade ball -- all rolled into one! During the celebrations, people often dress up or operate large character puppets and perform for audiences outdoors or as part of a show. In this course, students create larger-than-life puppets that can move, perform and even parade, while learning innovative puppetry construction techniques using colorful paints, fabrics, assorted modeling and recycled materials. No idea is too wild as they draw inspiration from the carnival costumes and pageantry of Brazil, Italy, Mexico, Southeast Asia and beyond.

Art is in abundance all around us -- especially in the natural surroundings found at Tillinghast Place in Barrington, RI. In this week-long camp, young artists will explore concepts of abundance and conservation in our surroundings and in our culture, and will create 2D and 3D artwork inspired by nature. Model and mold making, as well as traditional block printing, will allow students to create multiple reproductions of their own designs. Throughout the week, students will use an abundance of creativity while exploring a wide variety of traditional and nontraditional design and artmaking techniques.
