Camp Description

Pop art's influence stretched across the globe where it eventually reached Japan. The most famous Japanese pop artist is undoubtably Yayoi Kusma. Her iconic pumpkins and unique style of adding dots on the surface of her paintings and scupltures has captured the imagination of fans and brands. Labels such as Louis Vuitton have collaborating with her adding her unique style to their collection of bags and clothing. We will learn about her influences, artistic characteristics, motifs, and style in order to emulate her style with a Clay House Art twist.

Our canvas artwork camps combine 2D and 3D artmaking techniques to recreate these modern art masterpieces in air dry clay. For this week, campers will deleve into pop artist Yayoi Kusama's Pumpkin. Campers will learn about her unique style and sketch the iconic pumpkin onto canvas. Then, campers will start to layer air dry clay onto their sketch with techniques invented right here in Clay House Art's studio, to recreated the visual elements of the original Pumkin.

By the ened of the week, campers will have created their own masterwork recreations combining traditional techniques in sketch, and oil pastel, on a new air-dry clay medium.

Campers receive a set of 3 Take-Home Clay Modeling Tools & a Take-Home Handmade Clay Keychain by registering today!
