Week 7 – Art Camp Recap and What’s Ahead!

Time is just flying by here at Arlington Arts Center! We can hardly believe that August is already halfway over and there are only TWO weeks left of classes this summer. Last week, from August 4th to August 8th, we created animal sculptures by coating balloons with paper mache for little ones, created amazing and surreal paintings with our teen classes, and refined our painting skills with our 7-10 year old classes. It was a really productive week, and all the compositions we created across all age levels look wonderful! As always, below is a photo gallery with a few behind-the-scenes looks at what went on here during the past week.

As you can see, we had another week full of great projects! Hopefully these projects expanded our student’s skillsets and their minds. We worked in a wide range of mediums this week, from our animal sculptures in Hilarious Animals to a more classical approach to art as we painted at easels. From painting to building, our students have been having a wonderful time and we are always happy to help budding artists to expand their skills!

We’re sad that there are only two weeks of class left, but we still have a lot of great artwork to create! If you are interested give us a call at (703)248-6800 or take a look at our registration site here. As always, we hope to see you back here in a week to review our penultimate round of classes!
