On day one, you will share your portrait subject (you or a family member or a pet), then we will talk about composition, proportion and style. We will draw some practice sketches, choose the best and map out our canvases. On day two, we will prepare our paint palettes, talk a bit about color choices and then paint. For the final wrap-up, we will have a group sharing session and “ooh and ahh” over our masterpieces!

Virtual Space Camp

During this two-week virtual space camp, campers will help Mission Control locate a spacecraft by identifying the planets the craft has recently passed. Campers will receive a letter in the mail requesting their planetary expertise, and receive their first clue! Once they have researched the answer, campers will email their findings to Mission Control. Campers will receive three additional clues via email from Mission Control, as the astronauts provide information about the next planet they are passing. The program will conclude with a ZOOM meeting to discuss findings and theories. Campers won't want to miss out on this engaging inter-planetary adventure!
