The Arlington Arts Center (AAC) is a private, nonprofit contemporary visual arts center dedicated to presenting and supporting new work by regional artists in the mid-Atlantic States. Through exhibitions, educational programs, and subsidized studio spaces, AAC serves as a bridge between artists and the public. The goal is to increase awareness and appreciation of, and involvement in, the visual arts in Arlington County VA and the region. AAC was established in 1974 and has been housed since 1976 in the historic Maury School. Our facility includes nine exhibition galleries, working studios for thirteen artists, and two classrooms. At 17,000 square feet, we are one of the largest non-federal venues for contemporary art in the Washington metropolitan area.

$235.00

Many modern and contemporary artists enjoy experimenting with non-traditional ways to use paper and paper products in their work. We'll be inspired by various artists and we'll use some outside-the-box techniques and materials to make several projects during this 5-day camp. Projects may include cardboard sculpture, matchbox art, box portraits, painted paper or cardboard collages, collagraphs, and mixed-media hanging sculptures. All techniques will be fun and easy to learn. By the end of the week, you will have some impressive works of art!
