Clay and Pottery Camp at SBAP is a one-of-a-kind camp that takes place in a real pottery studio. Students will experience pottery taught from the perspective of a resident teaching artist. Clay Campers will spend part of their day hand-building, and part of their day learning to throw on the potters wheel. Students will explore, design, and MaKe each week with unique concepts and themes. All summer camps are one week in length Monday thru Friday, register for each week individually.
Just like ideas, "Amoebas" come in all shapes, sizes and colors. Clay Campers this week will create altered forms and abstract sculpture through learning about hand-building and wheel throwing methods.
Come learn about endangered coral reefs around the world and make nature inspired art with meaning and purpose. Students will sculpt Coral Reef inspired landscapes and pottery through hand-building and wheel throwing.
Fashion Design Camp 2019 is focusing on "ECOTURE" a sustainable fashion trend that aims to make a difference. Young designers will learn how to sketch the figure, make patterns, cut fabric, hand-sew, up-cycle, and use the sewing machine to create a head-to-toe look. Students will be invited to participate in our annual Fall Fashion Show to model their own creations (more info TBA). Scroll down to learn more about camp themes
