“We Built This City….” an exploration of community, mainly in the construction of a “city” via recycled materials. To begin our exploration we ask together, "what do you know about this city?" Included in this art exploration would be field trips to various (within walking distance) sites in the city of Auburn, the construction and reading of maps, plein air sketching of buildings and architecture, and so much more!  This camp will culminate in the production of a city, which will highlight components that the artists feel are important.

“Calling all the MOnSTers!" Join us for MOnSTer CaMp and create all sorts of monsters! From monster masks to hand sewn monster softies, young artists will partake of processes such as soft sculpture, papier mache, and creating self portraits (full body outlines to imagine yourself as a monster). Artists will also write and illustrate simple stories to construct their own book of monsters which will include a hand-sewn binding. A literature component of the work will include reading picture books about “monsters” (Where the Wild Things Are, The Gruffalo, Leonardo, the Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Monster) to engage our imaginations.
