Artists’ Books & Printmaking
It’s very satisfying for children to start with a stack of paper and end up with a book they’ve created themselves. We’ll be working with inventive artist’s book forms as well as traditional binding. We’ll be using printing techniques for some of the book interiors, write and/or illustrate as well as bind, so the finished books are very individual and very personal to the student. We’ll spend some time on different printmaking techniques to make stand alone prints as well…. And as always, we’ll spend a couple of sessions (we spend three sessions per day on art projects) on a ceramic project. All in all a very fun and full week!
Camp this year will be in-person, all outside, with a limit of 14 campers.
Located on the Berkwood Hedge campus, in downtown Berkeley. Following health department guidelines, we will be social distancing and spending most of the time on art projects with limited play time. Masks and frequent hand washing will be mandatory for campers and camp staff. It is especially important that your student is able to follow these guidelines, and is happy and able to spend focused time on their artwork.
Hours are 9-3, for ages 6*-13**.
*The younger set need to have completed 1st grade.
**The older set is not bound by age per se, but is up to the student if they are interested in attending. Projects work for students of all ages—some of my older students attend camp past the age of 13. Last year while online, we had the grandmother of a student join us and it was fabulous!
