For two fantastic, high energy weeks in the summer, artistically driven Detroit area middle school students interact with the work of KAWS, to design and create their own characters! KAWS is one of the most influential artists of his generation. Led by teaching artists experienced in illustration and product design, camp begins with youth touring and interpreting KAWS’ work on display at MOCAD. Drawing inspiration from these works, youth design characters based on themselves, utilizing basic illustration techniques.
Later, those illustrations come to life as youth translate their 2-D drawings into 3-D forms, using a variety of materials. Aside from working with positive teaching artists, campers will play games, enjoy outdoor activities, and make new friends during this exciting midsummer fun experience at MOCAD. Scholarships are available. All meals and snacks provided free of additional charge.
