TWO Virtual Camp adventures filled with fun and creativity!

Ages 7-13
Deadline to register: April 6, 2021

Please note:
Due to the April 1, 2021 lockdown announcement, staff will be unable to assist with registration over the phone.

Although this March Break will be a little different, and we’re sad that we won’t be able to see you in person, the AGP is excited to welcome you virtually. We are offering two exciting adventures that provide campers and parents with a virtual, worry-free option to stay at home and explore their creativity, all while learning from our experienced Art Educators.

Don’t miss out – there are only 15 spaces available for each virtual camp!

Parents will be sent an email prior to the start of camp, with information on how to access our online education portals, how to join the virtual Zoom classrooms, and how to schedule curbside pickups for the material kits.

Please note:

  • Pre-payment and advance registration are required for both camps. Upon payment receipt, you will receive an email with more details and can schedule a curb-side pickup following registration.
  • Camps will take place virtually, through a combination of online classes and/or pre-recorded videos.
  • To participate in our virtual camps, campers will need access to a laptop, tablet, smartphone, and/or computer with a reliable internet connection.
  • Kits contain the essential materials needed for each project.
  • Parents/guardians will need to provide basic household materials, like scissors, tape, rulers, etc. as required.
  • Campers will need a dedicated space to make their art.

Mixed-Media Explorations, with Linda Warren

April 12 & 13 (Monday-Tuesday)
10am to 3pm, daily

$110 – 2 day program (includes materials kit)
AGP Members get a 10% discount!

Campers will experiment with a wide array of mixed-media techniques, including watercolour painting, abstract sculpture, collage, portraiture, and kitemaking!

Guided by Linda Warren, campers will begin by learning about kitemaking in different cultures and examine historic art works by sculptors and painters, as well as explore their own personal histories and relationships. Campers will apply these concepts to their own artworks as they explore mixed-media techniques, to create watercolour paintings, abstract sculptures and portraits of their family and friends. Campers will also explore different elements of painting and sculpture to create their very own sled kites that they can actually fly!

 

Characters and Claymations, with Casandra Lee

April 14, 15 & 16 (Wednesday-Friday)

Campers will explore the art of character development and stop-motion Claymation!

Guided by our instructor, Casandra Lee, campers will look at examples of popular animated characters and learn about the different styles, character traits and physical attributes that make them so awesome and interesting!

Campers will learn a variety of drawing and sculpting techniques, and work together as they explore the process of creating their very own, unique characters! Campers will then learn the basics of stop-motion Claymation and create their own short animated film.

She has been an artist for 11 years and loves about every medium available in the art store. Bright colours are prevalent throughout her work. She is passionate about storytelling and capturing feelings better expressed through art. Her work is inspired by everything from the cosmos to communities to ladybugs.

Currently, Casandra is in the process of illustrating two books. Building a Home, commissioned by the New Canadians Centre, tells the tale of children moving to Canada and all that comes along with adapting to a new country. The second book in the works is a collaboration with author C Y Gopinath. The Bells of Casiopia is a story of loss, wonder, and hope.
