KIDS’ ART CAMP
DAY1 Canvas Tote Bag Designing and Screen-printing Logo
Canvas Tote Bags
Kids were each given tote bags and encouraged to design their bags. Luke drew a transformer, Eric drew a ladder, and Danbi drew a princess.
They then screen printed the Los Angeles Art League logo onto their bags! Now, they can have their art with them at all times (where bag is needed).
DAY2 Sewn Pouches, Embroidered Hearts, & Fashion Design
Day two of Kids’ Art Camp, the kids learned how to use the sewing machine with careful guidance from our very own teacher (let’s avoid any cuts and pricks!) They then learned how to embroider hearts onto their pouches. Lots of patience and perseverance learned.
They then wrapped up the day with designing their own shirts.
DAY3 Crafting Origami Jars, Color Wheel, and Map
Day three of Kids’ Art Camp was filled with craftwork. Kids started the day with Korean fable of the frog (disobedient frog) and then were shown how to fold an origami frog. They then would create their own terrarium, where they’d place their folded frogs with notes to their caretakers. Kids designed their own origami paper and were able to arrange their terrariums. They then cleaned up while learning the essentials of colors- primary colors and secondary colors. They then watched an animated clip of Treasure Planet and then created their own treasure maps.
Day4 Painted Origami Lamp, Family or Self Portrait, Animated Clip
Origami Paper (kids already designed on Day 3)
Day 4 of Kid’s Art Camp, the kids were able to finish folding their origami cranes and assemblage into the LED candles to create an origami lamp. The kids used their knowledge of color theory to paint color onto canvases and then finished the day with creating animated clips of their sketches. They learned the basics of transposing their artwork onto the screen.
DAY 5- Handmaking Clay Pots
Materials: Porcelain Air Dry Clay, Acrylic Paint, Rolling Pin, Plants
The kids in art camp will be creating their own clay pots- handmaking the vessels with techniquces from molding the clay, shaping the clay, pinching, cutting edges, drying, and then painting their pots. They will then themselves place their plants into the pots to take care of.
