Week Two: the 1930's-early 1940's

This week we will take much of our inspiration from the wide range of artists of the New Deal and WPA including Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, Aaron Douglas, Rosa Rush, and Jacob Lawrence. Students will learn about the role art played in helping lift the United States out of the Great Depression and the wide spread legacy of these programs that remains visible to this day. Like the works of this era, our projects will spark the collective spirit of art making and celebrate belonging.

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.
