Created by professional art educators with
the developmental needs of campers in mind, Virtual Art Camp includes a well-balanced mixture of live virtual instruction and off-screen time.
About the Course:
Activities vary, and may include drawing, painting, sculpture, print-making, and mixed media, as well as friendship-making and play time. Small group sizes ensure that campers receive high quality instruction and individual attention from their teachers while making exciting, hands-on art projects.
Campers will develop openness and skills in trying new ideas, materials, methods, and approaches in making works of art and design; expand problem solving and social engagement skills; increase understanding of themselves and gain self-reliance and self-confidence.
Scouts will complete the following requirements for the following merit badges: Citizenship in the Community: 1,2,6,7; Citizenship in the Nation: 1,3,4,5,6,7
This course is open to all youth in grades 6 – 8. We look forward to learning with all genders whether you are currently a Scout or not!
