Grooving at Art Camp this summer includes art classes, photography projects for all “campers”, hiking, swimming, dining, relaxing, quiet time on your own…and just plain having fun!
Get away for a few days into the San Berndardino Mountains at Camp de Beneville Pines and study digital photography and post-processing with Julie Diebolt Price.
This will be the 10th time around for de Benneville Pines annual art camp. This year, the five main class subjects offered will be:
Life Drawing, Photography, Watercolor Painting, Acrylic Painting and Mixed Media (Printmaking/Book Arts). Each camper will choose an area of study, receiving expert instruction from a highly recognized artist within that field.
Materials are provided and teaching accommodates all levels of experience from beginner to advanced. Class size is limited so instructors can give individual attention to each student. The first class will take place on Friday afternoon, with the subsequent classes on Saturday to Tuesday mornings.
Following these daily morning sessions and lunch in the lodge, campers will be free to experience a variety of afternoon workshops led by the morning instructors and others. Early each evening, an instructor will speak on the subject, “My Life as an Artist.”
The Art Groove experience is customizable to each camper’s preferences. Attendees may also blend art instruction with traditional de Benneville summer activities such as hiking or swimming, and of course, relaxation.
Dinner in the lodge offers a time to discuss the day’s activities, and evening “Art Jams” feature movies, discussion groups and even more outlets for artistic expression. Throughout the five days of camp, art will be displayed in a spirit of sharing and learning, culminating in a special exhibit on the final morning.
