SUMMER SISTERHOOD

ART CAMP




THIS TICKET COVERS ALL 10 WEEKDAYS ONLY and is NOT a sleepover Camp



ART&SOUL Summer Camp for girls ages 9-14

JULY 3-14 Mon-Fri 9am-5:30pm

*Campers bring their own bag lunches/snacks



I've been holding development meetings with some rather Rad local girls to gain insight and ideas on how to make this an awesome two week experience... We are STOKED with what we've built! By girls for girls :)


These girls will get to mentor under myself and other hand selected professional artists of various disciplines right in their studios and workshops where they create. Real tools and real world experiences.

We will also spend creative time in nature and in conversation about what it means to be in sisterhood with other women.. what it means to be social media soul savvy ... what is law of attraction and how can creative flow enhance vibration and usher in more of what is desired.

Each day we will open and close our time together in a sisterhood circle, some intentional writting or sharing and flow movement. Some days we will continue on with finishing projects and others will be full devotion to a new practice or art creation.



GUEST ARTISTS:

PAULA TIMM

NATALIE POISSANT /ELEVATED SPACE

ANDREA GRIFFITHS-MERREDEW

DESERE PRESSEY

BRUCE WATSON





SOME OF OUR ACTIVITIES and OUTINGS INCLUDE:

*the girls will create beautiful original works of resin art on custom built wooden box canvases.

- MIXED MEDIA (field trip & lesson with local artist PAULA TIMM in her CSpace Studio)

*the girls will create layered art pieces to incorporate found treasures and blend between layers with paint - learn about the mediums used and listen to Paula share her story on art as therapy.

-LAND ART (field trip & lesson with local land artist/photographer ANDREA GRIFFITHS- MERREDEW in the woods)

*the girls will be guided to explore the land...get up close and find moments of solitude and relfection in the process of creating with the materials found in nature... and listen to Andrea talk about the process of making and then letting go.

-VISION BOARDING / DREAM CATCHERS (In studio chat about law of attraction and building this into art pieces that serve as visual mantras of that which is most desired. A sisterhood circle of sharing made to allow more flow as we co-create in community)

-CRYSTAL BOWL SOUND BATH (field trip to the inner city studio ELEVATED SPACE where Natalie Poissant will teach the girls about the healing properties of crystal bowl vibration - give them a hands on experience of creating a soundscape together and then giving them a meditation guided by a crystal bowl sound concert)

-ART THREADS (In studio chat about how adorning yourself can also be a creative outlet.. and how eco-conscious thrifting into upcycled fashion is a way to engage in a deeper dialogue with self and others. We will also take a field trip to a local thrift shop where the girls will be given opportunity to find some items to take back to the studio and customize into wearable art pieces)

-WOODSHOP (field trip to the inner city workshop of artist BRUCE WATSON who will give the girls hands on experience building artpieces from wood products)
