Overview

Join us this summer for an exciting journey through the twentieth century! Each week will bring an exploration of the visual art and popular culture of a decade (or two). We will take our inspiration from artists and art movements, popular trends in clothing, architecture, literature, theatre, film, music, and dance, as well as the historical and social forces that shaped each era. Each 4 day camp will include a combination of two dimensional and three dimensional projects, and will be divided into a 6-10 year old age group and an 11-14 year old group. For our 6-10 year old cohort, we are pleased to announce a partnership with the OSU Department of Theatre that will bring an added element of movement and performance to each week.


This week our artworks will be inspired by both the "high" art of Abstract Expressionism and the "low" art of a newly expanded post-war pop culture. One day we might have fun absorbing the influences of action painting (think Jackson Pollack) and color field painting (think Mark Rothko), and on another day make work related to the birth of rock and roll and artists like Sister Rosetta Tharpe who pioneered the movement.
