Los Angeles Art League has its own kids department in the corner studio where students will do art from 9 am-12 pm. Under the guidance of our very own teachers, the students learn how to sew, paint, do color theory, draw, embroider, do screen printing, and craftwork. The students follow curricula set by the teachers where they learn these skillset and also learn to express their creativity. Although the students here are from kindergarten to elementary school, they still are expected to learn the same standards as that of the rest of the school.
On the first day of camp, the students learn how to design their own canvas tote bags where they use markers. They then are encouraged to share their drawings to the rest of the class. To wrap up the first day of camp, students learn how to screenprint the Los Angeles Art League logo onto their totes. Now, they can carry their artwork with them anywhere!
On the second day of art camp, the students through the supervision of the teachers, learn how to sew with the sewing machine canvas drawstring pouches and embroider designs onto them. They then create their own T shirt designs with paper and fabric. The teachers instruct the students the precision of needlework and expressing artistic creativity onto these designs. By embroidering these designs, the students learn the importance of consistency and patience in completing their finished product.
On the third day of art camp, the students learn papercraft, assembling dioramas with storytelling, and creating origami lanterns. The story is Korean fable of the disobedient frog. The students learn to fold the frogs with origami paper and place them into mason jars with makeshift forestry. They then write their own messages into the jars to offer their parents.
The students also create their own maps and are encouraged to illustrate their own paths.
Wrapping up the lesson, students are shown color theory and how to mix the different elements of colors and design their origami paper for the lantern.
With canvas tote designs, sewing, craftwork all marked on their list, students are now on to learning how to make clay vessels!
