Week 6 PM for 7-9 year olds: Paper Mache Sculptures
Paper mache—derived from papier-mâché, or “chewed paper” in French—is a sculpting medium made up of paper pieces that have been bound by an adhesive paste. Join us as we learn how to mix our paste, create a frame, and build all kinds of fantastical works of art while getting our hands really, really messy!
About the Program
Summer Camp at Fleisher is an immersive art-making opportunity for artists ages 5-18. Young artists can enroll in half-day or full-day sessions and explore a wide range of mediums, including printmaking, photography, fiber arts, ceramics, and graphic novels. Campers are encouraged to play, get messy, and pursue specific media in an environment that is both fun and artistically rigorous.
