One Artistic Eye Deserves Another
Greater Barton Arts has held free art camps for kids and teens, as well as free art classes for adults and seniors. The art camps for kids and teens are a focused week of drawing class.
In 2016 students learned the principles of drawing, with lots of practice on different subjects, such as still life, figure, animals, and complex forms. This was the basic curriculum for young students and for the adult and senior classes added in 2017. Also in 2017, an advanced class for teens was added to explore painting. Students learned the principles of color and worked on acrylic to approach several different subjects, including one of their own choosing.
In 2018 GBA held its art camps for children and teens during the Time Traveler’s
Camp at the Old Stone House Museum in Brownington. And a series of art classes for adults and seniors, including drawing and painting, were held in GBA’s new home at 396 Main Street in Barton.
Children 8 – 12 years old participated in the Time Traveler’s Camp in the morning and then in GBA’s free art class in the afternoon. Teenaged students met for their separate free classes in the afternoon from 12 to 3.
2019’s free Art Camps for Children and Teens will be held from August 12th to 16th at the Greater Barton Arts Center. Children from ages 9 to 12 will meet from 9 until noon, and teens from 1 to 4.
