From Tuesday, July 17th, through Friday, July 20th, The Butler Institute of American Art will be holding an Art by the Sea Summer camp at the Butler Institute at 524 Wick Avenue, Youngstown, OH, 44502 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Here is the information about the art summer camp:
Even artists need a vacation, and when the sun is shining and the weather is warm, just like the rest of us artists flock to the sea. However, the artist’s eye never rests! The carefree beach bathers, the bold colors, and the tumultuous waves are just a few of the beach scenes that have inspired artists on holiday-whether they have scribbled, sketched, photographed, or painted en plein air, American artists from Winslow Homer to Marsden Hartly, from Rafael Ferrer to Agnes Martin have used the power of the sea to express their inner selves.
During our two week stay-cation, we will bring the sun and sea to The Butler Institute in Youngstown, with projects that both evoke the powerful sights and emotions of the sea and even utilize some of the materials you might find at the seaside. So join us as we soak up the sun and explore Art by the Sea at this year’s Summer Visual Arts Day Camp.
To participate, campers must be between the ages of 8 and 12 by Tuesday, July 17th, attend the registration on the first day of camp, and commit to attending all 8 days.
