Egg in Nest is pleased to present our three new themes for Summer Camps in 2015: Taming Dragons (ages Kindergarten +), Print It! (middle school and high school students), and Magical Mystery Tour Part Three: A Painting Intensive (high school students.)
Our studio owner and professional exhibiting artist, Jenny Eggleston, will lead each camp in explorations of new themes and mediums that delve more deeply into each topic when provided a plethora of time together. 15 hours of art and creativity? Such a gift!
Will every student end up with a piece that looks exactly the same even though they are using similar materials and learning from the same instructor? Nope. Because each student is an artist in their own right, on their own path, and what they interpret as a dragon worthy of attention with the Sculpey, for example, might be all black. Even the eyeballs! While another student might settle on purple, but spend extra time detailing every last scale with a toothpick.
We would love to have your artist come and art-it-up with us this summer!

Magical Mystery Tour: Part Three
Our tour this summer will take us to the depths and breadths of a 4 hour per day painting intensive. We will not only explore acrylics, and oils, but try mixed media projects such as image transfers. We will learn to stretch and gesso canvasses as well as work on different grounds.
As in years past, professional guest artists will lead the way!
