Del Ray Artisans invites young campers to spend a week creating art with professional artist instruction. All artist supplies are provided. There will also be a one-day only gallery show held on July 22nd and July 29th to show off the students’ work from their week of camp.
Architecture and Adventures 2017 theme: Build BIG using all kinds of materials and inspiration! To build BIG, we will be investigating different architecture from near and far and learning how materials, texture, form and design come together to make memorable structures. Working with everything from cardboard and paint to clay and natural materials, our ideas will have no bounds!
Art Camp will be at the Del Ray Artisans gallery at the Nicholas A. Colasanto Center, 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, VA 22301. The gallery is handicap accessible.
