Preschool Camp.
You know who reminds you to have fun and explore...this age group! Fearless, inquisitive, and find the joy in everyday moments.
.
Today’s outside project was about covering our group canvas with paint (no paint brushes allowed), to see what happens when we saturate it with 💦. Everyone was seriously excited to watch the acrylic paint drip away 😂
.
I have been wanting to work on a collaborative painting for awhile. Each day there will be a new material introduced to layer on. This is completely inspired by my friend Megan (@artpantry) who was the founder of this sweet little art space a couple owners back. Megan, the fun lives on!

Sneaking into Monday.
Still love looking at our camp cyanotypes from last weeks photography camp. This method has been dubbed “sun prints” but we like to share all the real (real terms, real techniques, real materials) in art making when we can. Our art schools goal is to give our campers and students the authentic experience in art then give it a nice contemporary twist to create intrigue and new discovery.
.
The process: taking a photo, developing the film, enlarging your negative, prepping 💯 cotton rag paper for printing, place negatives under glass plate, expose in sun, watch the magic and beauty appear! .
History moment: Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. Engineers used the process well into the 20th century as a simple and low-cost process to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints. #wikipedia

Photography Camp.
We have upped our game! Our art school has several camps this summer for the older kids in our community, one of them being photography. So far our campers have learned about aperture, composition, and been on a photo scavenger hunt using their cameras in new ways to create pictures that are frame worthy. On today’s agenda...photoshop and developing their own film roll. Super excited to see all of their work on Friday! 📷

Art Camp.
Our campers get a new shirt each week and we wouldn’t be who we are if we didn’t decorate that shirt somehow. Today was indigo tie dye, fitting the theme of our photography camp as these campers will be learning to print cyanotypes from their film negatives on Thursday (ok a stretch, but it is the same hue of blue)!! I think indigo dying and cyanotypes should make their way into our adult crafting nights. What are your thoughts, would you want to join either craft night?
.
There is a lot of dye left and you may see me around town with some “new” blue clothes...love this color!

Award Winning Art.
I am sure this won’t be much of a surprise, but my favorite part of our county fair is looking at the art. Kids and adults alike, I could wander the aisles for hours. When Jenson and I came upon this, we were so happy for this artist. She is amazingly talented and had created this in our portfolio class. Congratulations Liberty!! 🏆 🎉 .
And friends, she had won something in EVERY category. Thanks for creating with us Liberty!

4th of July Parade.
If you see someone in a Studio 4 Art shirt marching in Novato’s parade tomorrow, chances are good we will have a little something for you! Teacher Jenson, my super supportive husband, my youngest son (who is lucky enough to tag along 😉), and myself are all volunteering. Maybe next year I can get it together enough to actually have a float! 🇺🇸

Summer art camp.
How is it possible that after 18 years of offering art camps I still get super excited about changing the life of a child to think more magically through creating art? It’s really true, I really do. I love what Studio 4 Art is able to share with the community, young and young at heART. We may be closed this week, but it does not mean that my mind can relax when it comes to “what else can we do”, “what can we bring to our families that is exciting”, “what art project can we focus on that will instill our philosophy of ‘creating leaders one art project at a time’?” On this first day of July I find myself thankful. Full of gratitude for what has been created and beyond excited for what will be.

Happy Friday!
What a wonderful week of Cartooning + Animation camp, Preschool Art camp, PAASS (adaptive needs youth) clay camp, and drop in studio time in Mill Valley and Novato. We had a blast with your creativity!!
.
FYI, both studios are closed July 2-6, it’s the only full week during the year that we are closed. Having a family run business means we have to close the studios to spend time together ❤️ Have a wonderful holiday and hope you are surrounded by friends and family! Happy 4th of July!! 🎇 🇺🇸 .

Preschool Art Camp. Novato.
This group focused on a lot of paint today. One of the process art activities was observation and execution. Color mixing, layering, and brush control all resulted in some beautiful acrylic painting 🌻 on canvas. Tomorrow this group will be making handmade paper. As much as this age LOVES water play, it should be another awesome camp day!

Ceramics, clay + pottery camp.
Making miniatures when it is food does kinda make you hungry. A great week of camp with these creatives. All of our clay camp weeks are sold out, but we do have ceramics classes during the school year. Our art school has many groovy (and educational) classes to choose from and will be posted soon. Classes are for toddler, primary, elementary, middle, high school, and homeschool!
