If you’re looking for an engaging summer workshop for your child, Art Camp for Kids is the perfect fit! Your child will learn to print photos using unique printing techniques with a mixed media approach as they work on a variety of exciting art projects! Instructor Jackie LaLanne has been teaching art classes for kids in Mill Valley schools for years, and she loves helping them learn different ways to express their creativity.
Jackie will take the kids on short neighborhood photo walks using point-and-shoot digital cameras provided by The Image Flow. The photos they take on these walks will provide the source images for other parts of the workshop. Our photographic art camps are a great way to introduce your kid to new photo printing methods and other types of media, including altered book making, collage, cyanotype solar printing, hand coloring, printmaking, and more.
Students in Art Camp for Kids will need to bring 10 photocopies of photographs from home; these will be used as additional material as the kids learn to create art and work on their altered book projects. All pieces created by students will go home with them at the end of the week, as well as 3 of their photographs printed by The Image Flow.
