In Teens

We’ve been buried in watercolor paper, paints, and left-over wire pieces around our art studio this week in our Art Summer Camp in Charlotte, NC. Kids have been having a blast staying cool during the summer heat making beautiful and fun art. We’ve been so in love with some of these projects and wanted to share their incredible work with you!

Here are some highlights from our Art Summer Camp in Charlotte, NC.

Keep an eye out for some individual blog posts about some of these fabulous projects! Enjoy!

    Very nice work indeed!
    Are these the coloured printings?or Are these the collages of foam you coloured?

      Thank you Greet! These images are of the collagraph printing plates that they applied chalk pastel to after printing them with black ink. They created the plates but cutting small pieces of thin foam – most places at least 2 layers. They used a glue stick but to ensure the plates didn’t fall apart during the printing process, we gave them a thick coat of Mod Podge to seal them. The next day they inked and printed them (no photos) – and then we thought the printing plates looked so cool we came up with the idea for them to color them with chalk.

    Oh no! I just re read your blurb and realize you didnt get any print pictures. Well, If I do this project with my middle school art students I will send you some. 🙂

    What kind of ink did you use to print with?
