Exploring Your Visual Voice: A Mini-Portfolio Art Camp

If you’re an artist, what’s your favorite medium? Have you tried any others? Or maybe you don’t yet think of yourself as an artist, but you’ve always been curious. In this camp, you get to answer these big questions by creating a brand-new portfolio exploring lots of different art forms. Projects will include studio media such as drawing, painting, ceramics, printmaking and photography, but we’ll also explore digital art in Adobe Illustrator and even the 3D software Blender. This is all about discovering new passions and skills, so absolutely no prior experience is required.

Cost: $550

Dates: 2024 dates TBA

Faith in Action at Art Camp

Since God is the original creator and we are all created in His image, creating is part of what it means to be human. Even better, we discover God and His world as we create. Art is clearly a powerful means of exploring, learning, growing, and worshiping. Each session of this camp introduces a distinct medium that you can use in as you grow in your knowledge of God.
