Mixed Media

Mix Media Art includes visual art materials with non visual elements such as literature, music, drama, dance, interactivity and more. It helps us think outside the box and outside the traditional fine art methods. Playing with textures using cloth, paper, wood, found objects and making collages and assemblages are common forms of mix media


3D Objects

Create 3 Dimensional art objects such as sculptures made out of wood, paper, clay or found objects. They are displayed, touched, moved and seen from all angles. It helps our students to recognize and understand 3D forms, contours,  light, shadows and how things can stand by itself, how things connect to each other and how different materials work

Summer Camps
Virtual ART Camps

DATES: June 22nd to Aug 28th

Online Art Camps are designed to develop visualization and fine art skills of all students. Over the period of one week, our students will create one Mixed Media Artwork on a canvas sized 16 x 20″, as well as five smaller drawings /paintings /oil pastel artworks on artist papers and canvas. Each day will have two 90-minute sections back-to-back, led by two Creative Hands Art Instructors. The first section will have students focus on drawings, paintings, and oil pastel lessons which they will start and complete the same day. The second section will shift to the longer-term Mixed Media lesson which will be created on one large canvas and worked on every day for all five days to produce a substantial level of work that can be displayed in your own home or an art gallery.

IN STUDIO CAMPS

DATES: June 22nd to Aug 28th

Our top priority is the safety and well-being of all our students, staff members, and parents while engaging in art or pottery-making in the studio facility.

To honor this, we have facilitated the following guidelines for our camps:

  •  Four workstations in one room which are separated into the four corners of the room. This means one student or two siblings will work at one station.
  • There are sanitizing stations in each room and students will be encouraged to use sanitizers every half hour.
  • Students will keep all their belongings in their workstations only.
  • Students will have their own materials and supplies throughout the week. The sharing of materials is not permitted during this time.
  • We have planned art projects such as creating games based on social distancing. Students will be making them as a means to own the situation and have fun.
  • Wearing masks are encouraged during the camp but not mandatory based on individual comfort level
  • This is new and we are learning every day. We are open to receiving your suggestions and feedback to optimize the students' experience and maintain safety guidelines.
