SAMA offers Kids Virtual Art Camp

LORETTO — The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art in Loretto announced its upcoming Kids Virtual Art Camp.

The classes will take place on the second Saturday of every month from February through May.

It will be from 11 to 11:45 a.m. for children ages 6 to 9 and 12:30 to 1:45 p.m. for children ages 10 to 13.

Students who are unable to attend every class will have access to the recording.

This course costs $40, and it includes an art kit filled with the art supplies necessary to complete the projects every month. Kits can be picked up at any SAMA museum location. See the museum’s website “visit” page for locations, addresses and hours of operation.

Registration is required at www

.sama-art.org/events-list. Participants may join using the link provided upon registration for the free Zoom app or website.

In this four-session virtual art camp, artist Amy Roadman will demonstrate various materials artists use to create art and learn how to use these supplies like a real artist.

Join us to create a work of art the second Saturday of each month, February through May, while experimenting with different art materials each session. Make a chalk pastel landscape, an oil pastel portrait and a watercolor still


In the last session, participants will vote on what subject matter and material from the provided kit to personalize learning and experience.

This camp will enhance observation skills and the understanding of creating the illusion of space through placement, size and overlapping of objects, atmospheric perspective and the amount of texture and detail added to each work

of art.

The difference between sketching and drawing will be discussed and demonstrated throughout the process as well

as shading, layering and color mixing.

Each student will be given guidance but encouraged to express his or her own individuality.
