Artists in Training Camps: What's Behind the Elements?
Wednesday–Friday, June 26–28

Interested in building your understanding of art? Young artists will take a hands-on approach to learning about the elements of art. Each day will focus on one of the elements (line, shape, space, value, form, texture, or color) through the study of artworks in MOWA's permanent collection. Students will then experiment with multiple mediums and tools from watercolors and oil pastels to brushes and sponges and create their own masterpieces in the studio.
