Light, Value Patterns, Notan, building an art vocabulary at Art Camp!

Wow…a treasure packed opportunity for the art camp campers this week!  Joanne Radmilovich Kollman has pulled out all the stops to give the campers the very best possible art experience possible and this is only day 2.

The camp, billed as a “Portrait Art Camp” has lived up to it’s title.  Starting with black and white mediums, Joanne got the concept of “value” across the the youngsters as they worked with various forms of charcoal and pencil.

Today, color was introduced in both watercolor and oil paint.

We took an hour off from 1:00 to 2:00 for a refreshing swim in the pool, came back ready to paint!  Joanne set up a pear on a white plate and showed the students how to start an oil painting.  Can’t wait to show you some results!
