Look Up! (Art Inspired by the Sky) (Online)

Students will explore all things that fly and flutter, from insects to dragons to planes. Students will study art from medieval times, as well as artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Rene Magritte. They'll paint and draw amazing worlds that play with the illusion of movement. Students will learn assemblage techniques to construct and experiment with art that can fly. / Open to students ages 6–12. Younger students may need assistance from an adult. MCAD strictly adheres to these age guidelines and is unable to allow exceptions. / View complete registration policies. Please read complete summer camp information and policies before completing your registration.
