Participants will create drawings and paintings that will become part of a simple pop-up book.
The book will contain 3-D illustrations that correlate both the participant's self-portrait AVATAR
along with text and setting illustrations that tell a short story about the child artist. The book will be created using drawing, painting and paper sculpting techniques. Come join us and let's see what we can create!
This camp is for students entering grades 4-6.
