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 ten artists to ensure each creator receives plenty of personal challenge, guidance and feedback to develop her work and ideas.
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 two sessions with unique focuses:
Session One : Monday, July 8th – Friday, July 12th P R I N T M A K I N G
Session Two : Monday July 29th – Friday, August 9th S C U L P T U R E
Depending on interest stitching, beading, and knitting/crocheting may be included.
GIRLS 8-11 | Limit of 10 | 9-2 PM (with option for extended day)
