Day 1: Introduction to sculpture, different types of clay and armature making. 

On the first day of our art camp at Bonura Studios, students will dive into the fascinating world of sculpture. We'll start with an introduction to the types of sculptures we create at the studio, showcasing a variety of pieces for inspiration. Next, students will explore different types of clay, learning about the unique properties of each and how they influence the final sculpture. We'll discuss various techniques used in sculpture creation and how to determine the best type of clay for each project. An essential part of sculpting is creating a strong “skeleton”, known as an armature. I'll demonstrate different ways to make armatures and the materials used. Each student will get hands-on experience making their own armature, experimenting with different techniques and materials. Finally, students will decide on an animal sculpture, whether real or fantastical, to work on throughout the week. We'll brainstorm and sketch out designs, laying the groundwork for their creative journey ahead. To wrap up the day, students will start building their armatures, getting a feel for the materials and techniques, setting the stage for the exciting projects to come. I can't wait to see their creativity come to life!

Instructor, Elizabeth Bonura

Hello! I'm Elizabeth Bonura, and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to share my love of art with your children at Bonura Studios' Kids' Summer Art Camps.

As a mother of three sons myself, I understand the importance of creating a safe and nurturing environment for young artists to explore their creativity. With a background in teaching preschool and third grade, I bring not only artistic expertise but also a deep understanding of child development and learning styles to my classes.

Teaching has always been a passion of mine, and combining it with my love for art feels like a dream come true. I believe in fostering a supportive and encouraging atmosphere where children feel inspired to express themselves and discover the joy of making art.

You can trust that your children are in good hands with me. I'm dedicated to providing a positive and enriching experience for every camper, and I can't wait to see the amazing creations they'll bring to life during our time together.

Thank you for considering Bonura Studios for your child's artistic journey. I look forward to welcoming them into our creative community!
