2021 Teen Art Camps Online

 

2021 Teen Art Camps Online is a week of fun drawing for teenage budding artists to spark creativity (13-17yrs). I’m an artist, longtime illustrator and cartoonist with work appearing all over the world. When I was young, I was always fascinated by illustrated book covers and comics such as The  and The Eagle. They were part of every child’s life. At home, we also had access to French comics such as Asterix and Tintin – there’s a whole world of excellent francophone graphic novels and comics that we seldom see in the Anglosphere.

What will we do?
We’ll have fun. Together at this 2021 Teen Art Camps Online, we’ll work on creating art from our imaginations. It could be your favourite books, music or characters. Each day, I’ll start by showing you an example or two of my drawings and then we could choose a subject such as a scene or character from Harry PotterHis Dark Materials, Lord of the Rings or your own favourite comic characters. How about a Space story? Aliens? Your greatest sporting moment? Your favourite summer activity? What’s the most ridiculous thing you can think of? We’ll also cover creative lettering as that’s also a great asset to your drawing.

Each day I’ll show you a different medium: Pencils; Sharpies, Biros, Dip-pens (if you have one); Fineliners and/or brushes and ink. You can choose whichever you like best. The whole idea is to draw out the creativity of your teenager: creativity, humour and individuality. Drawing is something that should be unique to each person – and the good news is; we don’t have to be Leonardo da Vinci!

What do I need for 2021 Teen Art Camps Online?
Since this is an online teen art camp, using Zoom, all you’ll need is a PC with a webcam, some drawing tools (pencils, Biros, fineliners or Sharpies are great) and a pad of cartridge paper (You can find these in any art shop and many newsagents. Mr Price is especially good).

I’ll help you gain new skills and approaches to drawing -and to think like an artist. In this week-long camp, we’ll work with various mediums – but all achievable. We all started somewhere!

Each day from 11AM to 1PM -with a 15 minute break in the middle for you to take a snack.

COST: €125

Thank you Kevin for the Paint your own stories camp for teenagers. Both the girls really enjoyed their experience. The course really held their attention and gave them lots of ideas and fun.

I just wanted to thank you for the art camp last week, as her parent, my experience is that praise from ******* is a rare thing, but she told me that she really enjoyed it and I think she would have happily done a second week if it was available.

Caroline. Cork

Both my children learned so much from their week with you. They were totally absorbed in their sketchbooks and haven’t stopped drawing since! Thank you!

Jessica. Birmingham

My teenage daughter ******* enjoyed her camp very much indeed. She says she especially enjoyed the way you helped her generate ideas. Now she wants to become an illustrator too!
