July 6 -10
Guest Artist: Jason “Stephon” Johnson
Join Riverside Arts Center for our 2020 BUILD! camp. Campers ages 6 -11 years-old will enjoy a week of activities that educate them about sculpting, painting, drawing, shaping, and combining materials. Participants will be using all sorts of materials like wood, wire, rope, found objects, cardboard, and will learn to imagine, design and BUILD amazing structures! We will be exploring endless artistic possibilities where participants will be guided through their own creative process, and creating their own vision. Guest artists and teachers will support campers with technical knowledge and creative question-based guidance. Campers are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and clothes that caregivers wouldn’t mind becoming permanently messy!
