CCA Summer Camp Experience 2020!

 

In partnership with Arts in Education of the Gorge, this summer Columbia Center for the Arts (CCA) is providing both visual arts and theatre summer camps for youth ages 4-18 to engage and empower them in the creative process where young people will explore their natural creative gifts and learn new techniques to build confidence and skills.

All supplies are provided, some scholarships are provided to support maximum engagement! Please bring your own snacks.

 

Safety and Precautions
Safety first! Physical distancing will be implemented, we are following the State guidelines from the Oregon Health Authority to guide us in our decisions and health precautions, here is the link to our Summer Camp Protocols with COVID

We are limiting our class sizes to 10 students, where our teaching artists will give an amazing experience to the youth who can participate, we will do everything we can to keep everyone healthy.  We do plan to keep kids at least 6′ apart, and have measured out our spaces to practice safety, and each participant will have a private container for their materials. If youth or family are showing any signs of illness we will ask them to stay home. We will take the temperature of participants at the beginning of class and encourage masks. We also ask participants to bring their own snacks for safety and health precautions. Thanks for understanding and working with us to keep everyone safe and healthy!

The week will start with a cool slide show to cover a little history of comics and how they are made. From Superheroes to funny, goofball characters, the artist’s comic strip concept will start with thumbnail sketches to develop your characters, then write a meaningful story line and lay out the sequence of the images on panel borders with speech balloons. Finishing touches with fine point markers for painting your lines and color.
