Art is a creative disciplined chaos...unleashing the magic of inventive ideas and solutions!
These are some of the 
NoT yoUr NorMaL 
ART projects that will occur each week of camp:
Sculpture – Build an armature (skeleton) to support the clay/medium that will cover it.
Slab/Coil pottery –hand build bowls, plates or cups, then fire them in the ancient “raku” process using banana/orange peels among other items to create a brilliant finish.
Painting – Fill an entire canvas with a self, pet, or favorite animal portrait.
Photography – obtain the “photographer’s eye”.   See new perspectives by going high, down low and in between.
Poetry –watch horses in the arena, then write one word “descriptives”.  Later, develop poems in haiku, free verse, and  limerick to form the shape of a horse.
Jewelry Making – Invent jewelry from repurposed leather.  Up-cycled horse tack has a whole new life as a bracelet, necklace or belt.

Today’s devices can take over our creative process.  We walk around viewing beauty and art on a screen and forget to look up to see the beauty that is right in front of us. 

In  NoT yoUr NorMaL ART CAMP  we will be looking up!  

Professional artist,  JEN RAYNES is the director of NoT yoUr NorMaL 
ART CAMP!   Jen is trained in Waldorf teaching methods and has taught art in our local schools and private studios in California and Arizona.  “I look forward to helping your child unleash their artistic ingenuity!”
