Art & Tech Summer Camp
Recognizing the importance of art education in developing critical thinking skills, confidence and teamwork, Bermuda National Gallery with the generous support of Centennial Bermuda Foundation are offering 35 full bursaries for public school students with financial need to attend the BNG Art & Tech summer camp. To ensure that as many students as possible have access to the course, registration is limited to one week per student.
The programme will run in July and August and will focus on digital art making techniques for students age 11 to 14 under the direction of our new Education Officer Rehana Packwood. The camp will take 10 students per week who will be based between the gallery and a pop-up BNG Education Satellite Space in Washington Mall generously supported by Washington Properties. Each student will be assigned an iPad and Apple Pencil to work with.
Students can choose from a variety of modules, which will be explored further in a digital art after school programme starting in September.
Digital Art Fundamentals (July 5-9): This week will teach students how to use effects in digital art programmes to create 2D graphics and introduce digital illustration techniques.
Photo Editing & Collage (July 12-16, August 9-13): Using photography and photo editing techniques, this week will introduce students to digital collage and photobashing.
Animation (July 19-23, August 2-6 and 16-20): Students will learn the principles of animation and apply those to making short 2D animations.
Digital Painting: Landscapes (August 23-27): Inspired by BNG’s current exhibition Illusion & Abstraction: Capturing the Landscape, students will learn colour theory and perspective as well as digital painting techniques in order to create landscape paintings of their own.
Thirty-five full bursaries are available for public school students which will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. The cost of the camp for those who are not eligible for the scholarship is $250, and a BNG Family Membership ($75) is required for registration.
