The Falmouth Art Center children’s classes and vacation camps continue to be popular during the pandemic.
Health and safety are a priority for students and teachers. Masks are required for all, as well as social distancing, hand-washing and disinfecting.
The center is offering one-week children’s vacation camps in the morning and afternoons from February 15 to 19 and April 19 to 23.
There will also be morning and afternoon one-week camps for eight weeks this summer, from July 5 through August 27.
The morning February and April vacation camps, called Wheel-throwing for Teens and Tweens, are focused on pottery. Campers must be over 10 years old and will learn to use the pottery wheel to create functional bowls and other objects with instructor Kim Sheerin. The camp takes place from 9 AM to noon.
In the afternoon, the February vacation camp is Drawing Head to Toe with Susan Jensen. Children ages 6 to 10 will do exercises to learn about proportion and shape in portrait drawing in a variety of mediums, including collage and paint, creating figure drawings and self-portraits. The afternoon camp takes place from 12:30 to 3:30 PM.
The afternoon April vacation camp will be Spring Fling with Alicia Buccino. This camp will feature creative art projects, including drawing, painting and sculpture for children ages 6 to 10.
The art center also has art and clay classes for children throughout the year, as well as early release day classes with three more coming up this year on February 2, March 2 and May 4.
