The 2023 Art Exploration Summer Camps at the Mansfield Art Center offers a unique and innovative approach to creative learning through STEAM learning methods. This camp is designed for children who love art and want to explore a variety of creative techniques, materials, and mediums in a fun and educational environment.

Throughout the camp, children will create art in a variety of mediums, including digital art, mosaics, ceramics, 3D printing, glassblowing, block printing, fiber art, glass fusing, lantern making, origami, sewing, screen printing, quilling, jewelry, and enameling. The camp will be led by experienced Ohio artists who specialize in each medium being taught!

Each day, children will create new projects that combine artistic expression with scientific inquiry and technological innovation. For example, they learn to create a 3D printed project, design a mosaic using geometric shapes, or fuse glass to make a functional piece of art. Throughout each project, they will explore the creative process and gain valuable skills such as problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration.

The camps will be divided into age groups, with activities and instruction tailored to each group's level and interests. The camp will also include a walkthrough through the Mansfield Art Center Museum (if a show is currently being exhibited).All materials and supplies will be provided, and children will be encouraged to experiment and explore different materials to develop their own unique creative voice. Each child will additionally need to bring a lunch each day of camp.

The Mansfield Art Center's Art Exploration Summer Camps for children are an excellent opportunity for children to develop their artistic skills, gain valuable knowledge in STEAM education, and make new friends in a fun and supportive environment.

EW-06-15/16-Beginner Stained glass creations: Spring Tree of Life


with Pia Douglas

Calendar Next session starts Jun 15, 2023 at 5 pm

Beginner Stained Glass : Spring Tree of Life 

June 15,16 

5 to 8 pm 

Age: 16 and up 

Beyond its many meaning and beliefs the tree of life is always a favorite.  Represented in a stylized manner in stained glass, this project is very satisfying. 

A very beginner creation, the tree of life is fun to make in the fact that not two pieces are the same and you can give your tree the color scheme your heart desires. Acentuated and interlaced with glass nuggets the look is complete and sits on a table or window sill or hang it in the window for your pleasure! ...or better yet, it makes a wonderful present.

Remember to bring a dish cloth to dry your pieces. 

 This is a long class so be prepared to have something to drink and a snack with you (if you wish). For safety reasons, please make sure that you have closed shoes and your long hair tied-back.
