A child who is introverted or shy may be a reluctant artist, they are still welcome to join Menifee Kids  Summer Art Camp Programs. 

 

Learning, growing, experimenting and expressing once self through art is at the heart of what we do. We provide plenty of individual attention and a positive supportive, nurturing environment.

How does my child need to dress for the Art Classes?

 

Art can be definitely messy! and our past Summer Art Camps are real proof of this. 

Please have your art camper wear comfortable old clothes and closed-toe shoe * (Please do not use sandals) , and a large t-shirt to cover clothes will also work.

 Garage sales or thrift shops can be a good source to find clothes that can be compromised with paint, glazes, concrete, glue and more paint!  :)

Some of this paint glazes and mix-media art projects we use with our art students include professional-grade paint and will not come out of clothes.

 

 

Does my child need to bring his/her own art supplies?

 

Unless specify; children’s classes include all supplies and media materials. I encourage art students to keep their own art supplies at home as they learn, try and experiment with art supplies in our art classes.

 

For more advanced art students  I  will have an art supply list available.

 

 

 

Are your art classes STEAM inspired?

 

Lately I been getting parents inquiring  more about my art curriculum; honestly I never set much thought about  asking myself if my art classes were STEAM inspired as to me is pretty obvious Art is connected to this 4 concepts and had been using this concept on my art approach  without putting too much emphasis to call them certain "steam title".

 

 

 Steam stands for Science Technology Engineering Art and Math.

 After dissecting one of my lessons I will say Yes, definitely!

Art is very connected to all 4 STEAM concepts.

 

 

 Just a simple example is when we do portrait studies - a small anatomy introduction jumps in as an essential explanation to help the young artist understand what he/she is drawing from torso, elbow, muscles are there any veins shown on the subject? neck, tendons, skull shape, eye sockets and grow formation. Young art students are exposed to a full introduction of new words on anatomy and help them distinguish the basic composition in a human body when their art project is about such figurative drawing or so.

 

Our Sugar  Skull study painting on canvas shown here:

Young art students learned about the Sugar Skulls” folklore, traditions, where did start and why, to the more anatomical explanation such as frontal bone, nasal bone, mandible bone and how mobile and large that jaw bone is before they were ready to sketch their own sugar skull.

 

We do a little bit of chemistry by mixing colors when we study our color theory, clay and paint, paper mache,  glue and other ingredients and so on …

 

We also divide our pages in half, thirds and quarters, we section and study angles and perspective. We also look for the native habitat of a particular animal we will be painting; origin and behavior.

 

Social Studies are touch when we talk about certain cities and social groups, traditions and ethical customs before sketching, painting or 3D sculpting.

 

All these tiny bits of information are poured into our art classes in Menifee Kids Art Camp for our young millennials art students to learn and understand what lands behind their created subject.

 

 So, I might say yes, Menifee Kids Art Camp offers a STEAM inspired art curriculum.
