Bowdoin Summer Art Camp Registrations Being Accepted

Story posted May 06, 2002

Bowdoin Summer Art Camp is now accepting registrations for this summer's half-day workshops for children ages 10-18. All sessions are led by professional artists and take place on the Bowdoin College campus. No experience is necessary - just enthusiasm for the process of making art, and a willingness to explore new materials.

Junior campers (ages 10 to 14) have three choices for half-day workshops: Clay Workshop: Focus on Hand-Building (July 1-12); Drawing and Sculpting Workshop: Focus on the Horse (July 15-19); and Process of Sculpture: Goop Maché Mythical Creatures (July 22-26).

A two-week, half-day Mixed Media Workshop (July 1-12) will be offered for senior campers (ages 14-18). In this workshop teens will experience drawing in various mediums as well as create handmade sketchbooks and portfolios.

For the second time, Bowdoin Summer Art Camp will offer two Saturday Family Partnership workshops. Family Partnership workshops are designed to encourage children and adults to create and explore various artistic mediums together. A Clay Sampler, exploring techniques of working in clay, will take place on Saturday, July 13. Goop Maché Magical Animals is being offered for families on Saturday, July 22. Goop maché (similar to paper maché) creatures created in past years at the Bowdoin Summer Art Camp are on long-term loan to the Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick.
