The Cannon Beach Arts Association is pleased to announce the 13th Annual Summer Art Camp will return to the Cannon Beach Community Church for the week of July 13-17, 2015.

In addition to our full-week classes, we will offer several workshops occurring on Wednesday through Friday only. Classes are available for all ages, from preschool through adult.
This year’s camp will feature many of our most popular classes from last year, as well as half a dozen new topics for exploration. Hannah Nebeker’s Creative Kid Explorers will provide ages 3-5 an opportunity to navigate hands-on, openly creative activities. Ireta Sitts-Graube will lead her perennially popular watercolor class for ages 5-8, featuring an exploration of creatures from outer space. Karen Meili teaches Kid’s Yoga for ages 5-12.

This renowned art teacher from the Create Channel on PBS will share her knowledge of watercolor techniques with ages 10-adult.
In the afternoons for the full week, Drenda Duff will teach Painting with Pastels, a colorful class with many innovative projects for ages 8-12. Sarah Lippold’s Canvas Creations class for ages 5-12 allows children to participate fully in all stages of the creative process.

Four three-day workshops will be offered on Wednesday through Friday. They include a morning class led by Sarah Lippold on learning to use a printing press for printmaking from original creations. In the afternoons, Dorota Haber-Lehigh will teach a class called World Art Adventure, combining examination of famous architectural icons with drawing techniques, painting and collage. We also welcome two new visiting instructors from the Portland area. Sarah Ostaszewski, a fine arts graduate of Indiana University, will teach Form and Color in the Landscape for ages 12-adult. Sam Loper, a film and video arts graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art, will teach solar photography technique to make “photographs”on a variety of surfaces.
We will also offer a supervised noon recess hour for students ages 5-14 who wish to remain at camp for the full day. Students must pack a sack lunch, and there is an additional fee for this service in addition to class tuition. Cost for workshops varies based on the duration of the class.
