Postcard from Art Camp


With the second week of Art Camp drawing to a close, here’s an update on some of what was happening over at the Madison Annex classrooms Thursday:

Cartooning Camp

In Cartooning Camp, Ricky Bryant’s campers practiced gesture drawing. After that, they got some comic strips with their final panels missing and had to make up and draw their own endings.

Basic Art Camp

In Basic Art Camp, Ali Wunder was leading campers through making paper tigers with construction paper. We counted three orange tigers, three pink tigers, and one orange tiger with pink clothes. You can see one of the orange ones all finished up at the top of this post.

Clay Animation Movie Camp

It was shoot day at Claymation Camp, with young filmmakers and Andrew Morgan filming their story frame by frame. We won’t spoil the movie for you, but there was mention of a talking tomato.
