Get a sneak peak of MOCA’s Spring Art Camp

March 15, 2017 // by Kiersten Lampe

Spring break will be here before you know it. What are your plans? Students staying in Jacksonville can enjoy their break at MOCA Jacksonville! 

Spring Art Camp returns to MOCA Jacksonville during Duval County's upcoming spring break March 20-24, plus a bonus day on March 17. Students can attend morning, afternoon, and full-day classes where they will explore new materials, visit the Museum's galleries, and let loose in our Art Explorium play space. What projects do we have scheduled for our campers?

During Monday's afternoon session, students learn about different printmaking processes. Campers first visit MOCA's Permanent Collection to view Corpse and Mirror by Jasper Johns. Using their gallery visit as inspiration, students paint with ink to create their very own monoprint with one our newest art-making tools: the pin press. Students print their inky designs by rolling the pin press back and forth across paper to transfer their work and produce their own prints.

On Tuesday afternoon, students view different paintings in The Evolution of Mark-making to inspire their own camp creations. On display is Jill Nathanson's Fluid Measure, a piece that features poured colored gels. Inspired by Nathanson's work, campers create their own colorful gels by mixing powder paint and glossy gel medium. The gel layers are painted, overlapped, and blended to showcase color-mixing and semi-transparency in the students' artworks.

Campers attending Wednesday morning's session focus on singular colors to make monochromatic masterpieces. For one project, students select fabrics in their favorite color, dip pieces into liquid starch, and layer them onto a mold. Once dry and stiff, the fabric forms a bowl!

All of this and more awaits our campers! Visit the Spring Art Camp page for a full list of themes, pricing, and other information.
