Art is all about paintbrushes and pencils, right? NOT AT THIS CAMP. Ambitious Artists Camp aims to expose creative young artists to a wide variety of mediums including portraiture, abstract painting, hand building with clay, pottery wheel, and stop-motion animations. On the first day of camp, Camp Director Nick Clulow will organize individual and group activities in order to gauge campers’ areas of interest and abilities. From there, Mr. Clulow will facilitate activities that not only appeal to campers of all levels but also encourage them to expand their creative boundaries and help them strengthen their artistic skills.

Individual Projects

  • Altered photo portraits
  • Bowl on the pottery wheel
  • Hand-built animal mug
  • Ceramic pendants
  • Color scheme circle drawings

Group Projects

  • Building a clay city
  • Stop motion/pixilation on the iPad

*Due to time constraints, only some of the projects listed above will be able to be completed.

What to Bring

  • Lunch can be brought from home in a cooler, or a lunch plan is available for purchase two weeks before the start of camp
  • Full water bottle with camper's name on it
  • All other supplies will be provided
