Spring Break Camp 2024 - Wednesday

Day 3 at Earth Arts was a blast as we dove into Installation Art and Surrealism.

We kicked off the day by introducing our campers to the two exciting styles of art we would be exploring. First up was Installation Art, where everyone shared stories of the installations they've seen or dreamed of creating one day. A banana taped to the wall? Why not some grapes?

Inspired by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama and her iconic "Obliteration Room," our campers embarked on their own obliteration adventure. With dot stickers in hand, they transformed plain birdhouses into vibrant works of art, capturing the magic of Kusama's whimsical vision.

After a snack break to refuel our creative energies, we dove into the surreal dreamscape of Surrealism, or as the kids like to call it, Magic Realism. We explored famous works and identified the elements that blurred the lines between reality and imagination. This led us to the captivating world of Frida Kahlo, where we discussed her cameo in the movie Coco and marveled at her iconic self-portraits.

Inspired by Frida's bold spirit and surreal style, our campers created their own self-portraits, incorporating flower crowns, elements of Mexican Folk Art, and dreamlike designs. Some campers even donned Frida's renowned eyebrows and lipstick! With a special guest appearance from talented local photographer Liz Degen, each camper had their portrait taken, capturing every child's individuality and unique essence.

The projects turned out dreamlike and surreal, a testament to the boundless creativity and imagination of our campers. It was another great day at Earth Arts, filled with laughter, learning, and vibrant memories. Here's to many more adventures in art ahead!
