Virtual Summer Art Camp- Art and the Ologies

Story provided by Prairie Arts Center

This year’s summer camps are a playful pairing of art and the ologies! Together, we will explore the many ways artwork illustrates, aids, and even creates human understanding in fields as diverse as psychology, mythology, marine biology, and entomology. Each week we will take our inspiration from two fields of study, creating works that express and celebrate our expanding knowledge!

This summer, in order to keep both students and staff safe as we slowly reopen the center, we have decided to offer our summer camp sessions virtually. With the aim of providing a sense of community and shared space similar to our traditional camps, they will take place in a synchronous learning environment. In other words, a live, real-time classroom with other students and an instructor on Zoom. Students will meet from 9:30-10:30 each morning for instruction and discussion. From 10:30-11:30, the instructor will remain available on the Zoom platform while students are free to take a break, have a snack, and finish up their project. Students will be able to check in with the instructor at any time during this break for guidance, company, or conversation. From 11:30-12, the class will once again meet all together, this time sharing their work and discussing the experience. A supply list will be provided ahead of time. In order to keep it simple and affordable, we will be sticking with two dimensional works using pencil, pen, markers, watercolors, collage materials, glue, and scissors. For the older students, there will be an emphasis on skill-based instruction.
