Art Camp 2015!

We had a fantastic time at camp this year!  Pfeiffer University hosted us and I even had the privilege of using their art room, which was super nice!  Over the course of four days, we created beachy scenes on 16x20 canvases in each group.  Campers learned artsy smartsy words and about topics like seascapes, horizon lines, and the proper use of brushes and creating brushstrokes that make a realistic seascape. I did a guided drawing on the first day and we painted our skies, blending blues with white to give our paintings dimension. Day 2 and 3 we painted water and went crazy with color on our sailboats and surfboards.  On the last day we enhanced our drawings using permanent markers to make the original outlines stand out.  I enjoyed this group of artists this year and think they did a fabulous job on their paintings!

Mabry really gets into it! ;)
