Art School

The FIA Art School is a community school where people of all ages and abilities take part in a wide variety of activities. All are welcome, whether beginners or experienced artists.

We're sure that you will find a class or two to sharpen your skills, introduce you to something new, expand your understanding of the visual arts, or give you an opportunity to try your hand at making art. The Art School is here to serve you and we look forward to seeing you in class!

Exploring Art

Young artists ages 5–7 and 8–12 will examine the elements of art making and create unique individual works of art inspired by people, places and things. Exploring Art will transport campers to far away locations of the world to study line, shape, color, size, and texture. Enroll for one or all three weeks. Drop-off times begin at 8:30a daily.

Each camp ends on Friday with a gallery event at 4:00p in the Bishop Gallery that includes a showcase of visual and performance talents. Family and friends are invited to join us.

Above & Below the Sea
July 13–17 • 9:00a–4:30p

YO-HO-HO! A-r-r-r-r-t adventures are blowing in the wind! As we navigate the open seas, young mateys will be on the watch for pirates, treasure, denizens of the deep, and Davy Jones Locker as inspiration to create fishy clay creations, treasure maps, and pirate ship paintings.
Outer Spaces
July 20–24 • 9:00a–4:30p

Blast off for art explorations that are out of this world! Armed with paint, clay, and mixed media materials, young astronauts will zoom through the galaxy in search of new planets and signs of extraterrestrial life forms. Individual creativity is the highlight of our week as campers create artwork that is out of this world.
Art in Motion
July 27–31 • 9:00a-4:30p

With gears, springs and moving things, campers will explore how art in motion impacts our environment. Let's study cars, mobiles, steam punk, and robots and create our own works of kinetic art. Art that moves will be our inspiration as we draw, paint, build and imagine art in motion.
