Hannah's Art School Spring Break Camp 2012

April 2-6

Spring is fast approaching, which means the sun's rays beam warmer and longer, and we can see its dramatic effects on our natural environment. For our sprouting artists, the opportunity to get out and draw shouldn't be passed up. And so, I am excited to introduce the first ever Hannah's Art School Spring Break Camp!

The theme for the 5 day camp is "Spring Into DC." The camp will feature two distinct components: (1) field study/ drawing; (2) studio instruction/ lessons. Specifically, our sprouting artists will visit various sights around DC and VA to complete field drawings under my supervision. Some sight visits may include (subject to change): Great Falls National Park, the National Mall, the U.S. Capitol Building, Iwo Jima, the possibilities are endless! We'll even plan a Smithsonian Museum day when our artists can take a break from the studio and view some of DC's famous art museums.

MONDAY: National Mall field drawing (AM)/ return to classroom (PM).

TUESDAY: Great Falls National Park field drawing (AM)/ return to classroom (PM).

WEDNESDAY: Smithsonian Museum Day!

THURSDAY: Iwo Jima field drawing (AM)/ return to classroom (PM)

FRIDAY: Studio time to finish art pieces, and Art Show!

Lunch, snacks, and transportation are included.

Cost: Artists currently enrolled in the school--250; New artists--300

Space is limited to 8 individuals. If you are interested in enrolling, please call Hannah's Art School at (703) 830-3027.

What happens if mother nature doesn't cooperate? Well, if that happens, I have a truly creative and fun classroom/ studio project planned. Building on the theme "Bringing communities together through artistic expression," each artist will be provided diverse materials to build a three-dimensional neighborhood. How a neighborhood looks will be left to the artists's creative imagination. Some may create one inspired by New York's Times Square; perhaps another will be inspired by famous buildings and communities overseas; or perhaps something closer to home such as a historic neighborhood in Annapolis! Artists will build simple structures, paint, create scenes, and the communities will come together to create one amazing village that will be available for public viewing at Hannah's Art School!
