Roeland Park Community Center
ARTventure Camps (Ages 6-12)
Spend one week with us or a whole summer! You can get creative all summer long with a 20% discount (hey, that's TWO free weeks of camps!) if you register for all 11 weeks. That's a pretty cool deal.
What will you be doing all summer? Work with teaching artists to develop your artistic eye through an adventurous lens combined with interactive experiences, games, and many more ARTventures! Camp activities run from 9 am to 4 pm, and supervision is available from 8 am to 5:30 pm. And HEY! These camps go swimming every week too!
Camp Week 1, Lively Lines - May 28, 2019-May 31, 2019
Lines come in various forms: straight, curvy, thick, thin, zig-zag, and so many more! What types of lines can you think up? Is there such a thing as a line that has yet to be invented?
Camp Week 2, Sizeable Shapes - June 3, 2019-June 7, 2019
Shapes are two-dimensional. What is a geometric shape versus an organic shape? What shapes are found in the natural world? What does it mean to create abstract art using shapes?
Camp Week 3, Color Club - June 10, 2019-June 14, 2019
Primary colors, secondary colors, warm colors, cool colors. Color theory through mixing. Opaque vs. transparent. Monochromatic. How many approaches to color can we take?
Camp Week 4, Tangible Texture - June 17, 2019-June 21, 2019
What is the difference between real texture and implied texture? In the arts, we see texture in paintings but we also feel texture on sculptures. How can we explore the feeling of art?
Camp Week 5, Funny Forms - June 24, 2019-June 28, 2019
Ceramics! Sculpture! Explore three-dimensional mediums through innovative projects. How do you build with a slab of clay? Can you try the potter’s wheel? Is a sculpture the same thing as ceramics? How are they different?
Camp Week 6, Open Studio - July 1, 2019-July 5, 2019
Join us for a single day or four days and create what you want, how you want! Your ideas are the leader as you continue to work on any unfinished projects from previous weeks or try something new! This week will have some directed projects, a lot of games, and a lot of process exploration!
Camp Week 7, Playful Patterns - July 8, 2019-July 12, 2019
Learn different approaches to pattern through painting and mixed media as you explore how pattern is essential to the arts. This week focuses on true design and how to repeat motifs, colors, or shapes to create an aesthetic.
Camp Week 8, Clever Contrast - July 15, 2019-July 19, 2019
What does contrast mean? Perhaps a better term would be opposites. Is there such a thing as opposite colors? Opposite shapes?
Camp Week 9, Eccentric Emphasis - July 22, 2019-July 26, 2019
How do you make something stand-out within your work of art? Making some wacky art, you will learn what draws the viewer’s eye.
Camp Week 10, Beautiful Balance - July 29, 2019-August 2, 2019
Exploring two-dimensional and three-dimensional works of art, learn how balance really applies to both forms of art. Three-dimensional art must have balance to stand-up right, so how do you make that happen? Does two-dimensional art have balance?
Camp Week 11, Rapid Rhythm - August 5, 2019-August 9, 2019
Rhythm is a difficult thing to capture (pssst this is why this week is last!) as it involves the slight differences in pattern which create movement within art. Did you ever notice how you look all over a work of art when you see it? What creates the map of your view? The artist does! Now you’ll learn how too!
