Aug 10-14 Summer Camp: Artists in Their Time

Artists in Their Time
August 10-14 (Monday - Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.)

Learn about master artists from world history and how their life and culture influenced their artwork. Then make art inspired by them! Explore Georgia O'Keefe's rugged Southwest and make a watercolor. Learn about Rembrandt's Netherlands and create a self-portrait (the original selfie!) Throughout the week, students will keep a sketchbook journal and then finish with a "gallery" showing.

Notes about Camps and Registration:
Camps are designed to stimulate children's creativity and allow them to experience history, architecture, art, crafts, games, and the tastes and sounds of diverse cultures. Camps are led by an experienced teacher assisted by college student interns as well as youth and community volunteers. Camps take place at the air-conditioned Oberlin Depot at 240 South Main Street with occasional walking field trips to notable locations nearby. For all sessions, children should bring a bag lunch each day. Some snacks will be provided.

Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Classes may be cancelled if a minimum enrollment is not met by one week prior to the start date. No refunds will be made within one week prior to the session the registrant is scheduled to attend. Grandchildren of Oberlin Heritage Center members may receive the member discount as well.

Partial scholarships may be available to those who qualify for schools' free lunch programs (please inquire 440-774-1700).
