CLAY CAMP

Dig-it-Build-it-Fire-it!

June 28 - July 2

 

Kids can dig into some dirty fun at clay camp!  Participants will learn how to dig for clay and process it through a screen before using this ancient building material for making creative projects.  Using outdoor and indoor studio space, kids will explore the world of ceramics by making fairy and troll houses, tiles, and dream jars.  Young mud-artists will hand-build and press their projects using air-dry and hand-dug clay. Some projects will be pit-fired.  Clay play everyday!

Sorry!  This camp session is filled.
Hope we'll see you for other activities!

ART IN THE PARK

Saturday, July 3 / At the BANDSTAND

 

 Come on out and get creative at Confluence’s drop-by day-of-art-making!  Kids, teens, and old geezers are invited to stop by and paint, print, craft, and create at multiple craft stations suitable for all ages and abilities. Preregistration is not required.  By donation. Guaranteed fun!

PAINTING THE TOWN

Confluence History Meets Graffiti Art

July 5 - 9

For kids who’ve always wanted to make a big statement with their art, this camp will leave a colorful mark on Confluence!  Kids will learn about graphic art and design by painting the streets and creating large murals to be displayed in the community.  Our public art projects will incorporate Turkeyfoot history and amusing old ordinances into legal graffiti.  This class promises big, bold art that will be enjoyed in Confluence for years to come!

ENVIRONMENTAL ART

Eco-art in Frogtown!

July 12 - 16

Kids who can appreciate hobbit holes, natural forts, and mud play will enjoy our exploration of environmental art and nature in Frogtown,  a small bottomlands section on the  east side of Confluence.  Once a wetland and the site of a brick factory, Frogtown is the perfect site for making environmental art in the style of Andrew Goldsworthy, a British artist who used only natural materials in his famous sculptures. Kids can count on hands-on environmental fun and lots of digging, building, and creative nature study. We'll do clay projects, painting, river play, and more!
