Spring break is just around the corner. How will your child spend that time?

MOCA Jacksonville's Spring Art Camp has morning, afternoon, and full-day classes March 21-25. You can register for one or more sessions during the week. Students learn how to use a variety of materials and techniques to create their own works of art. What kinds of projects will our campers tackle?

In Masters of Art, campers learn about contemporary and past artists the styles and ideas they propagated. Some projects include self-portraits inspired by René Magritte's The Son of Man, personalized Andy Warhol soup can drawings, Impressionist bridge paintings in the style of Claude Monet, and James Rosenquist-inspired cosmic collages.

In Materialistic Masterpieces, students learn how to use a variety of materials and processes employed by great artists, from practicing on the potter's wheel to experimenting with mixed media. Projects include building mixed-media bird sculptures, wheel throwing with air-dry clay, screen printing collages, and constructing spinning color wheels with fusible plastic beads.
