This summer I have come to camp as myself, what I mean is that I came to camp just to be a fine art illustrator (I’m heading into my senior year at art school) and share that in different ways at camp. One of those ways has been leading drawing and painting interest groups. On Wednesday this week I experimented with Tex and the campers to make these nature art paintings. We used scrapers and a roller to apply layers of paint and then glued on things we had collected from nature to create lanscape scenes of camp.
In my other interest group we played around with watercolors– how the colors can bleed into each other, drips can create interesting shapes and splattering the paint is a lot of fun!
