Summer Arts Camp: ‘I Wonder with Watercolors’

Recurring event see all

July 7, 2020 @ 10:00 am 11:00 am

Session One of EAC’s Summer Arts Camp, for ages 6-13, is all about watercolors. Ann Cannizzaro, an educator and artist who’ll lead the camp asks: “Do you wonder what to do when you take out your paint box and brushes? Are you curious about how watercolors work?”
Campers will learn about how to use water and paint: how shapes can help create space in painting; what happens when color circles bump shoulders! Best of all, students will explore fun ideas to gain knowledge and skill with paint and brush. Who knows?  Some might even become painters! Come to class so we can find out…..

Since this is a Zoom summer camp, participants can join us from whereever they happen to be spending their days that week.  Local children* can receive their bag of materials including paint set, 2 brushes and watercolor paper pad with their registration fee. (A sliding fee scale is available by request). Bags will be on the front steps of EAC on Monday, July 6th from 10 am to 1 pm, or contact Alison for an alternate time/place.  Registration fees—just $5 per child or $10 per family for the 3-day session—may be left in the coffee can provided.  All Covid-19 precautions will be followed by Alison as she prepares the materials packets wearing a mask and gloves.   

Check out this video promo for the camp! (Thanks to Ann Cannizzaro and Nia Aretakis for putting this together)

PLEASE preregister by July 5. Email registration name, phone number and address to alison@eastportartscenter.org. Funding for this workshop provided by Belvedere Traditional Handcrafts Fund of the Maine Community Foundation.

*If you aren’t local or wish for other reasons to provide your own materials, we hope that you can still join us for these Zoom workshops.  Please email Alison to indicate your interest, and to receive information about signing in to the class.  A registration donation is welcome, but not necessary if you are providing your own materials.
