Winter is a time for reflection and celebrating the wonders we have in our lives. This season, explore the treasures of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and create one-of-a-kind artworks. During Winter Holiday Art Camp, kids will craft unique paintings, create traditional and non-traditional sculptures, enhance their drawing skills and create photo collage and mixed media artworks—all inspired by Ogden Museum’s current exhibitions. Projects are fun, inventive and different each day.

Monday, December 20 - Sculpt! Start off this fun art filled week by learning about sculptural buildings by artist Beverly Buchanan and how to construct your own three dimensional dwelling. Artists will learn about blueprints, different architectural views for drawing and how to create and embellish a wooden sculpture based on a familiar building in their life. In addition, each day artists will have time to work on a playful holiday inspired craft project that can be gifted.

Tuesday, December 21- Collage! Day two offers an opportunity to look closely at a familiar childhood story and some striking photographs. Artists will observe, sketch and discuss photographs by RaMell Ross and his use of gesture inspired by the artist and author Shell Silverstein. A deeper dive into the ideas of surrealism and gesture will be explored through drawing techniques and a photo collage. Don’t forget, each day also includes a playful holiday inspired craft project!

Wednesday, December 22- Paint! Day three will be a painting exploration inspired by the artwork of artist Jennifer Packer. Artists will explore mixing colors, painting layers, patterns and human figures. This project will begin with smaller painting exercises on paper and lead up to a final large acrylic painting on canvas. Don’t forget, each day also includes a playful holiday inspired craft project!

Thursday, December 23-  Sculpt! Day four artists will look deeply at the work of Lonnie Holley and create a self-portrait wire sculpture collage. Artists will use their drawing skills to “draw in wire,” and then embellish their portraits with creative and inspiring supplies. Don’t forget, each day also includes a playful holiday inspired craft project!
