7/23 pm - Explore the World of 20th Century Artists
In this field trip camp you will explore the world of a selected group of 20th century influential  artists up through 1970 to find out who and what influenced them and how they did what they did.  Each presentation of the artist under discussion will be followed by painting and drawing exercises which encourage students to experiment and explore using the materials and techniques learned, along with sharing ideas and conclusions.

Rather than attempt to cover too many artists we have selected some with very unique styles so the students are given lots of leeway and choice, while also learning some invaluable artistic information they can incorporate into their own work. Weaved into the instruction is fascinating background history of each Artist.  Highly recommended for those istudents who want a more in depth understanding of the world of painting.
