Young artists will explore a diversity of expression through a range of mediums, playful exercises and fun-filled projects. Beginning and advanced students will get an opportunity to develop skills in watercolor, acrylic painting, stamping, colored pencil and more. With an emphasis on contemporary pop culture students will take exciting excursions to places such as San Francisco’s Japantown and the Cartoon Art Museum. Sketchbooks will be supplied to students to help develop ideas for larger projects in the Art Room. Selected viewing of cartoons and art shorts tie into the projects of this one-week mini course.
