ART is a verb


ART IS A VERB is an adventurous art making camp in Brooklyn for girls — who want to dive deeply into their creativity.

Enrollment is limited to ensure safety and that each creator receives plenty of personal challenge, guidance and feedback to develop his/her work and ideas. Given the state of things, this camp will be held outside, no more than 8 girls, wearing masks if closer than 6 feet, frequent hand washing, etc.

The philosophy behind ART IS A VERB CAMP is focused on process rather than product making. While artists question, imagine, draw, plan and make things, along the way they are encouraged to explore mistakes, change their minds, develop ideas — and live in a conversation between materials, ideas, peers and possibilities.

This kind of focused art making develops curiosity, problem solving, resilience and confidence.

This summer, Anita and Melanie will host one session:

Session One : Monday, July 20th – Friday, July 25th : P R I N T M A K I N G :

Depending on interest additional mediums/processes may be included.

KIDS 8-11 | Limit of 8 | 9-2 PM
