2017 Course Information: Summer Art Camp ages Twelve-Sixteen

Summer Art Camp ages Twelve-Sixteen

After the success of last year’s children’s art camp, the Craft School is expanding its offerings to include older students. Lane Berg is returning with projects tailored for teens. During this week-long morning camp students will try their hands at weaving, clay hand building methods, and drawing techniques. They will also be invited to bring their iPhones to learn more about iPhone photography and to create a mixed media self-portrait from their photos. Don’t have an iPhone? Don’t worry, the instructor will share his phone or iPad so all are included.

Instructor :Lane Berg

Lane Berg is primarily an acrylic and mixed media artist, with explorations into printmaking and photography. He studied art and social work at Delta State University, receiving a BSW and an M.Ed. and currently teaches K-12 art at Timbo School as well as beginner mixed media art workshops in Mountain View. As a teacher, he has dabbled in almost everything. He says “Just about all of my personal work is influenced by the Japanese notion of wabi sabi, essentially a celebration of imperfection.” His delightfully imperfect works have a fanciful richness that suggests an interest in underlying realities. For the last 10 years he has shown in the longest running gallery in Vicksburg, Mississippi, the Attic Gallery. He recently won a merit award at the Greenville, MS Invitational Show for a mixed media painting and in 2016 he taught a professional artists workshop “Wabi-Sabi, celebrating Imperfection in Mixed Media”.
