Spring Art Camps, April 3-7 and 10-14th, Animals and Imaginary Creatures!
We will explore the basic proportions and shapes of animal bodies as well as the texture of animal skin, fur, and feathers. We will pay special attention to the gesture of the animals’ movement in their natural habitats. Using these principles, students will have the opportunity to create hybrid and imaginary creatures. A trip to the Little Farm is planned for the first week, to draw the animals on location. A special visit from animal guests of the Oakland ZooMobile will provide inspiration for the second week.
