Art Adventures YA! (Young Adult) Day Camp introduces students in grades 6-8 to OCAC’s professional art studios under the guidance of working artists and arts educators. Each weeklong session is comprised of two in-depth art workshops. This intensive exploration of two different studio techniques provides the developing teen boundless opportunity for self-expression and personal exploration. The YA! Day Camp is an ideal starting point for any youth interested in pursuing art at a more complex and rigorous level.

At the end of the week, we welcome both family and friends to come to campus at 4:00pm for our Friday Art Show, where students can show off their work and view work done by other YA! participants.

Before/After Care is offered as a package for an additional fee of $30 per session. No person under the age of 15 years may wait unsupervised on the campus of Oregon College of Art and Craft.

Digital Photo:

Time to explore media arts! You will use our small digital cameras, your Smartphone or your DSLR to explore the world around you, behind a lens. This workshop offers a current perspective on photography including shooting, digital editing, and printing. You will learn how to find a dynamic image in the world around you and how to turn this image into an amazing end project. We encourage photographing during the workshop, so that you can find interesting shots together with the facilitation of the instructor. Other projects explore the use of Photoshop and give you alternative ways to look at imagery. If you have a Smartphone or DSLR camera, please bring it.

Screen-printing + T-shirts:

You will learn to coat and expose a screen in the dark room, register your repeat, and make beautiful prints in this active workshop. Think of your favorite bands, create new logos or make ironic Ts in the surface design studio, just like the pros! You will be taken through the basics of screen-printing on both fabric and paper. Past workshops have explored ways to create a repeated pattern, interlocking into one large image, explore graphic images or experimenting with abstract designs. This workshop is very hands on, a little messy and incredibly experimental. You will make their own t-shirt design and can share images at the end of the week. If time allows, we will print on other fabrics and items.

Start Date: Jun 25, 2018 Days: Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Time: 9:00am - 4:00pm (Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri)

In this mixed media workshop, you will focus on visual storytelling. You will work in any format/medium you like (graphics, painting, drawing, illustrated novel) to create a series of works that tell a story that is important to you. Learn how to express emotion and direction while telling an important story. This workshop is great for exploration, portfolio building or simply to explore and build your visual language. All levels welcome!

Upcycled Fashion + Fantasy Costume Design:

Time to redesign old clothing into something fantastic! Breathe life into an old design! You will use basic design, alteration and sewing skills to restructure garments into something new. Just GOOGLE Altered T-Shirts and you can see the various ways to rethink your clothing! For those of you interested in costume design as well, the idea is the same- we will repurpose clothing, use recycled materials and found objects to turn them into fabulous costumes. Plan for Halloween next year, or your own film production!

Painting:

Painting workshops focus on color, paint mixing, abstraction, realism, and anything in between! You will learn the formal aspects of painting, from organizing the picture plane to mixing colors. You will explore new ways of thinking about space, form, line, texture, and pattern as well as various approaches to applying paint. Projects might include the study of observed subjects, such as the still life and the figure, but they also might include exercises that pull from the imagination or might explore abstraction. You will experiment on various substrates such as paper or canvas, as well as wood and un-stretched canvas. Project outcomes are wonderfully colorful, often whimsical and will make a wonderful addition to any room! All levels of experience will find this workshop a worthwhile, positive experience.

Into the Wilderness - In partnership with Signal Fire

WATER AND GOLD: WIDE OPEN STUDIOS SUMMER IMMERSION

Location: Klamath-Siskiyou Mountains, Oregon and California
Dates: July 1-28, 2018

Applications: Open application February 1- March 31 (early admittance deadline February 28)
Instructors: Ryan Pierce and Kerri Rosenstein    
Cost: $2900 (two $1000 scholarships available)
Credit: undergraduate & graduate tuition/3 credits: $3,980 

Activities: Backpacking, base camping, car camping

Level of Difficulty: This course is our most physically challenging program, simply because we are backpacking in rugged terrain for much of the four week span. That said, we welcome beginners, and we will be teaching backcountry basics from the ground up. A typical week will involve backpacking 3-6 miles for two days, base camping for three days, and then hiking back to the cars. Our group will travel and live in close proximity for the duration of the trip.

Appropriate for: Emerging artists and current students of any discipline, or anyone seeking a curriculum-rich engagement in the natural world. Ages 18+.

Our sixth-annual Summer Immersion trip journeys through the enchanted Klamath-Siskiyou Mountains, a vast and rugged range stretching from the coastal redwood forests to the slopes of the Cascades. In the 1850s, the lives of the native inhabitants of this region were upended by a gold rush and the miners and settlers who flooded the region.

Now rural and remote, the pursuit of minerals, timber, and water for irrigation still strains the ecological and social fabric of the Klamath. It is a land of geological wonder: pyramids of red rock supporting a botanical diversity unmatched in the West. It is a place of cultural complexity, shaped by back-to-the-land utopians, libertarian separatists, the US Forest Service, legends of Bigfoot, and the tribes and transplants that fiercely defend this place.

Participants in Water and Gold will travel together for a month of backcountry excursions, backpacking and car-camping, sharing meals and making art. A broad curriculum of readings and activities, visiting presenters and site visits, will support individual artistic response in any media. The structure is intimate and engaging, shaped to catalyze creative breakthroughs and lifelong friendships. This course is intended for those without any prior backcountry experience as well as seasoned campers. Students have the option of taking the course for three transferable college credits for an additional fee (graduate or undergraduate).

Sketchbooking:

Sketchbooking is the creative exploration and experimentation of drawing, ideas, play, coloring, and painting. The sketchbook is the foundation for every visual artist and helps to develop your creative voice. Come fill your own sketchbook with drawing projects, handlettering techniques, watercolors, comic drawing, and collage. Sketchbooks are the way to plan for potential bigger projects and a way to capture inspiration. A great tool for an artist portfolio, a journal or just the pleasure of mapping our your life visually. This workshop is about experimenting with all kinds of mark-making tools.

Ceramics

Ceramics is a very hands-on workshop! You get to explore with mud, fire it, and keep it forever! We have two different processes that campers focus on in the ceramics class. The first process is learning to work on the wheel in the ceramics studio. You will learn to center the clay and form and build throughout the week. This means you come away with thrown objects that can be used functionally, or as art pieces. The second process is hand building. You will make sculptural objects, exploring the limitless possibilities of forming clay. All projects are fired and either glazed or painted, so you come away with wonderfully finished pieces.

Do you have an opinion or a statement that needs voicing? Perhaps you just want to spread joy as far and wide as you can? Well if so, printmaking is the discipline for you. Steeped in a rich culture of social progress and intellectual dissonance, printmaking is the first step to communicating your message on a mass scale.


Work side by side with artist and printmaker, Kanoa James as you learn the basics of screen printing (serigraphy) and the tricks of the trade gained by experience. Bolster and diversify your art portfolio with clean, registered and crisp images that can only be attained by the process itself. From start to finish, you will learn design, exposure techniques, registration, printmaking, and cleanup as taught on a collegiate level. Expand your voice to posters and apparel (T-shirts) so that you may share it with the world. Printing is water based and ecologically friendly. All supplies are included.

Metals:

YA! Metals is a wonderful and rare chance for middle school students to explore an ancient medium and the techniques to create small-scale projects such as jewelry, sculpture, functional items and decorative metal pieces. Each Metals Instructor focuses on different techniques to produce wonderful projects. Examples of projects might include wire sculpture and explore how to use line three-dimensionally, cutting flat sheets to create forms that move, surface design and stamping to create literary metal pieces or wearable art, and small scale forming and bending of metal to create jewelry. Every metals class is unique, and offers different skills for campers to explore in the wide field of metals in our state of the art metals studio on campus.

Leatherworking:

You will learn the processes of finishing leather, and use stitching techniques to create your own leather crafts. This first project will be a basic pouch project that allows you to initially learn how to plan the template for a project, get familiar with stitching, and generally become familiar with the material. After working together to create the pouch for the first two days, you will be encouraged to create your own design for a wallet, using poster board to create your own unique template. Your knowledge of leather can now inform a more self-directed project, while still being guided to ensure success at completion. You will also learn some leather stamping techniques to add visual interest to their designs. This workshop is so creative!

Darkroom Photography:

Most middle schools do not have a darkroom to explore photography. In this wonderful, busy workshop, you will get a chance to explore darkroom processes, black/white photography and image composition using your own SLR cameras, a borrowed camera from OCAC or our Holga “toy” cameras. There has been a revival in the photo industry to use Holga cameras to produce an image unlike any other method in photography. Along with the process of exploring the cameras abilities, campers also explore analog photography, and produce prints from film in our darkroom. Campers always truly love producing images from film. What a great way to explore photography! We will provide the Holga cameras, and if you have an SLR camera, please bring it.

Comics:

Our popular Comics workshop has a drawing foundation with a twist: the campers all produce their own comic, which the instructor binds together into one compilation that each camper gets to take home. You will explore ideas of what you want in your comic, creating story structure, character development, the character’s environment and production of the comic strip. Techniques in basic drawing, learning how to draw with blue pencils, and then filling in with ink teach you to reproduce only the lines you want in your final comic. Built into this class are so many foundational ideas about how to make art well, and how to make art fun. This workshop is outstanding and requires a lot of attention!

In this amazing, hands-on workshop, you will explore the world of wax and how to create beautiful pieces of art with this ancient medium. First we learn encaustic wax techniques on wood panels.

You will learn to collage and layer with melted wax to incorporate layers of color, thin papers, pastels and dried plant. This forgiving medium allows for incredible experimentation! You will then learn the basics of batik- the art of decorating cloth using wax and dye, which has been practiced for centuries. By painting, dripping and rolling the wax onto the fabric, you create a resist by which you then dye to bring out the amazing contrasting colors. Experimentation, success, and exploration are all amazing lessons in this work. You will leave the workshop with multiple projects!
