UW Art Museum Hosts Summer Art Classes
The University of Wyoming Art Museum offers summer art classes and camps this month for students from preschool to age 15.
The Friday morning preschool classes, “What Do I See?,” are scheduled June 14, 21 and 28 from 10-11 a.m. each day. Students will look for inspiration in the work on display and examine how light changes color. Students will use paint in unique ways to create interesting works of art. This is an excellent class for experimentation. The cost is $18.75 for the three sessions.
The Summer Art Camp, “Investigating the Natural World,” takes place in two sessions, with students ages 6 to 10 meeting Monday through Friday, June 10-14; and students ages 11 to 15 meeting Monday through Friday, June 17-21. The camp takes place from 1-4:45 p.m. daily. Students can sign up for the week or a day.
Students will explore the artwork exhibited in the museum to draw inspiration from plants and other natural materials to make extraordinary art. Students will discover ways to make art in the studio, including sculpture, painting and collage.
