Contemporary Art Camp for Teens

for Teens
Spring Break: April 9-13, 2012
                        Monday-Friday 10am-4pm
(Summer 2012 to be scheduled)

Ages 13-18 (limited to 10 students), 200 Euro for 5 days.*

This 5-day Workshop is perfect for the creative teen, curious what being an artist today is all about! In the morning we will work in the studio, with guided drawing exercises, presentations on themes in Contemporary art, portfolio development, and experimentation. Each day after lunch there will be a different excursion into the Berlin art world.  We will visit contemporary art exhibitions in museums and galleries, and visit artists at work in their studios. Direct contact with curators and artists will be the focus.  All instruction will take place in English, but Mira does understand German.

Mira O'Brien has years of experience teaching kids, teens and adults. She has taught art in public schools in Los Angeles, to college students at Yale, and now she teaches classes through the Drawing Room in Berlin.

*Price does not include BVG ticket or museum admission. Some materials will be included for guided exercises but not necessarily for individual projects.
