Campers will learn the foundation of hand-building methods of slab, coil, and pinching clay. Activities will be wide-ranging, including ideas about sound, architecture, the vessel, and personal narratives. Students will have the opportunity to discuss current pieces in the KANEKO exhibition, surrounding works in the Old Market, and a tour of the Jun Kaneko studio. Campers should come ready to have a high-energy week that includes quick sketch periods, short gallery and neighborhood tours, and multi-piece explorations of the ideas they bring for each assignment. No prior experience is needed and novice students are encouraged to join. Campers will be led by ceramics artist and former Jun Kaneko studio assistant Peter Scherr. Children Entering Grades 6-9.
In order to ensure the safety of our creative community and to support all students and parents managing this challenging time, we are moving our summer camps to an online model AND making these virtual camps FREE for all students!
Our staff is working very hard to give all summer campers a quality virtual experience and have moved to a donation-based model to make sure ALL kids can have an inspiring, creative experience at their fingertips.
All materials needed for this camp will be provided by and delivered to your door by a KANEKO staff member. All you will need to participate in this camp is the following:
We believe that every child should have the opportunity to explore their creativity and are so happy that you chose to enroll your child in this Creative Summer Camps with the KANEKO!
The COVID-19 pandemic has made it much more difficult for families to provide their children with unique and thoughtful learning opportunities, which is why we’ve made our camps online and FREE this summer. COVID-19 has also made a large dent in the KANEKO’s programming funds, so if you wish to donate, we would be forever thankful for your generosity; all proceeds will go towards our educational programming.
Because these camps are free, spots will be filling quickly. We ask that you let us know at least a week before camp starts if you cannot attend. Please alert us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
