Summer Art Camp at the Silvermine Arts Center in New Canaan begins July 9th and runs through August 24th. Summer Art Camp offers children the opportunity to experience the arts, have fun while creating, challenge their imaginations, and meet new friends. Classes will run for six consecutive weeks and children can participate for one or more weeks.

Junior Art Camp, for ages 5 to 8 is a place where young artists engage their imaginations. The teacher to student ratio is approximately 1 to 4 allowing for the development of individualized artistic expression and effective dialogue. Through stretching, smudging and squeezing, students will develop knowledge of a variety of techniques. Art studio activities include an introduction to art history.

Youth Art Camp for ages 9 through 12 is an opportunity to stretch imaginations while strengthening drawing and painting skills. Students will discover the fundamentals of drawing and painting and their relationship to each other with emphasis on individual perception and exploration. Young artists will discover new concepts and master basic skills while gaining confidence, pride and self-discipline through their efforts.

The Teen Summer Workshops for students from 12 to 15 years old will offer a variety of media that ranges from Oil Painting, to Printmaking, Portrait/Figure Drawing & Painting, and Enameling. Oil Painting workshops will provide a complete overview of painting with oils and students will be guided through the process of creating a landscape painting. In the Printmaking workshops, students will learn a variety of printmaking techniques and explore the creative process of printmaking working on paper, cloth and stone. In Portrait/Figure Drawing & Painting students will work with a clothed model exploring both the face and the full figure, and will work with a variety of drawing and painting media to learn the traditional techniques such as proportion, shading and composition. Emphasis will be on developing painting and drawing skills.
