GSOA Art Camps 2019 with Tim Stiles

“Death Star” by Corey M.

GSOA Summer Camp Art classes will have several choices and lots of freedom for your child to follow
their own voice on what they want to do! We’ll teach them the techniques then let them follow their
intuition as they try it for themselves in the Studio! Your kids are sure to LOVE it!
Space is limited, so register early! Camp Fee is NON-REFUNDABLE as we are holding a spot for
you. However, it is transferable if you would like to find someone to take the spot.

Art Camp is limited to third graders and up.

 Instructor: Tim Stiles

Classes Offered:


Clay is a wonderful, tactile media and in this camp, we will reflect on the theme of summer as inspiration. During this camp, the campers will experiment with a variety of building techniques including pinch pots, slabs, coils, and the wheel. Once the campers learn to express and execute their personal visions in clay, they can become empowered in ways that go far beyond the walls of the studio! All levels are welcome.  Clay pieces generally take one to two weeks to be fired. The school office will notify parents when pieces are ready to be picked up. The school provides all materials.


Bob Ross-Inspired Landscape Painting

Campers will learn the technical style of painting made famous by Bob Ross through hands-on instruction.  Class offerings include a variety of landscape techniques that will build up to the creation of one-of-a-kind work of art!  Campers will start from a blank canvas and end with a completed painting that can be taken home to amazing family and friends.  The school provides all materials.
