Art In the New Year is a 3-day art camp for kids, ages 6-14, that introduces new forms of art & craft while students create work they're proud of!
CLASS TIME: 10am-12:00noon, Jan. 2, 3, 4, Wed-Fri. All ages 6-14 come to these 2 hour sessions.
FEE: $68 per student covers all three sessions and all art materials needed to create great finished projects!
Jan. 2: Ceramic Casting! Students learn the basics of pouring liquid slip in to molds to create ceramic forms, and get a lesson on how to paint detailed ceramics. Each student paints one ceramic mug, cup, or figure of choice. (Pieces chosen from class stock during class session).
Jan. 3: Fine Art & Tee Shirt Block Prints! Everyone loves stamping to create repeated design, and learning basic print-making techniques will multiply possibility! We'll introduce fine-art block printing materials, mediums, and household materials that create great prints. Students leave with their own block prints they've designed, MANY prints on art paper, and a T-Shirt they have printed themselves.
Jan 4: Spin & Weave! Drop spindles are easy to make yarn with, and everyone will get to try! Commercial, novelty, and hand-spun yarns are used in this class to weave into beautiful tapestries. Each student will take home their own bit of hand-spun yarn, their wooden Beka 10" Tapestry Loom (worth $24.98!), and a new appreciation for a world of textiles around them.
Parents: While we know these topics are super cool and we all want to take the classes too, we will only have room for our 18 students reserved. Downtown Nampa is home to 14 non-chain restaurants, the Flying M Coffee house and the new Public Library... so check-in the kids and meet up with friends, or just get a well-deserved break!
This program is only offered as a 3 day registration, due to its abbreviated length and the need to continue work on some projects throughout all 3 sessions. (Unlike our summer Art Camps that are purchased per-class)
Discounts can not be given for attending less than all three sessions, though students do not have to attend all 3. Please add any notes we need about your student attending in the comments box at check out, including student(s) name and age.
CLASS SPACE LIMITED TO 18 STUDENTS: Purchase your class registration here, or call us @ 208-407-3359 to reserve your space.
