Welcome to UWG Continuing Education's Nature and the Artist Camp
How important has nature been to artists through the ages? Many of the most famous artists have used nature to inspire their great peices of work. Think about Van Gogh's work; what about Georgia O'Keeffe? We'll explore these artists and many others who were inspired by nature and the world around them.
Join us to draw nature as we see it! Nature and the Artist lesson plans include teaching the 4-basic lines of drawing and the contour line concept. We will explore the beautiful infamous magnolia tree in front of the McRitchie-Hollis Museum and will focus on other trees, as well. One project will include planting our individual loblolly pines (to take home) and painting their clay pot. Our final project will be using oil pastels on one of our "tree" sketches. We will exhibit all art work on the last day of camp for parents to enjoy!
