Start With Art at DAC
Young artists will love these exciting opportunities to finish summer vacation with style. DAC will host a Teen Artist Retreat from August 11-13 for students ages 12-17. This summer’s teen camp will focus on printmaking processes that include trace monoprints and woodcuts. Denver artist Jennifer Ghormley (that’s her woodcut print above) will cover a brief history of printmaking and the many options it entails. Demos, examples, troubleshooting and print quality will all be covered in this fun three day camp. The cost is $120 for DAC members and $150 for non-members. Register Here
Also in the Education Studio, kids will love “Patterned Paper, Prints, Paintings and Pots.” The class will run from August 4-8 with a morning session for ages 5-7 and afternoon sessions for kids ages 8-11. Students will play with patterned landscapes, texture patterns and printed cloth patterns in this powerfully patterned art camp. The cost is $112.50 for DAC members and $125 for non-members.
