This camp offers a truly unique experience for youth to explore art making and
agriculture with a focus on the importance of soil as the basis for food and
Create- Using locally-sourced raw clay, students will examine the
steps necessary to process clay into a workable ceramics medium. Students
will learn and practice hand-building methods, decorative applications, glazing
techniques, and participate in kiln firings. Students will also sketch on
location and participate in a collaborative painting project.
Connect- Students will participate in an activity-based tour of
Betty LaDuke’s global agriculture-themed artwork at the Schneider Museum of Art
where they will hear from the artist herself. Students will gain an
understanding of the essential nature of soil and its important role in both
agriculture and domestic products through a dynamic geology lesson.
Consume- Students will take part in a “scavenger hunt” for
unusual produce at a local farmer’s market where they will have the
opportunity to engage with local farmers. The camp will culminate in a tour of
an organic farm where students will sketch and harvest their own lunch.
