Visual Arts Classes
Campers in the Visual Arts program choose a specific medium to study, learning and practicing new skills and techniques, and working on projects. Campers learn to work with a variety of artistic tools including a printing press, loom, pottery wheels, welding and glass torches, and electric and unique Noborigama wood-fired kilns. They also participate in informal class critiques and learn about art history.
Major classes include Ceramics, Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Green Corp, Multimedia Art & Printmaking and Fiber Arts. Minor classes change every summer, to feature the unique talents of our seasonal teaching artists. Examples of previous Minor classes include Illustration & Comic Book Art, Painting on Alternative Surfaces, Sculptural Ceramics, Functional Ceramics, Mixed Media Sculptures, Jewelry Making, and Fabric Art.
Some of our classes are in such high demand that they’re offered as both Majors AND Minors!
