Week Six: the 1980's and 90's

The final week of our summer camp season will be an exciting investigation into two decades that many of us lived through: the 1980's and 90's. Some of our projects will take inspiration from Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, the Guerrilla Girls, and Street Art, a paradoxical movement that returned to more traditional figurative imagery while also rejecting the primacy of galleries and museums spaces. We will also be inspired by the introduction of digital art, music videos, and the zine. This one might be the most fun for parents!

In each of our four day summer camps, we will explore the visual art and popular culture of a decade (or two), creating works inspired by what we see and learn. We will take our inspiration from artists and art movements, popular trends in clothing, architecture, literature, theatre, film, music, and dance, as well as the historical and social forces that shaped each era. Each camp will include a combination of two dimensional and three dimensional projects in a variety of media, and will be divided into a 6-10 year old age group and an 11-14 year old group.
