Aspirational Shoes: Teen Art Camp with Joalida Smit

  • Location: Gorton Center
    400 E. Illinois Road, Lake Forest, IL 60045

This camp runs Monday, July 10 – 14, 9:00am – 12:00pm

Bring your own or choose from our collection of crazy interesting images of shoes and construct your own art work using mixed media.

This class will teach teens to think about art as a way to communicate something about themselves. We will focus on composition and explore a range of materials – collage, stencils, rubber stamps and acrylic painting to create a final art piece.

Ages: 12 – 18 Years Old
