Art

Become a better artist through fun, creative exercises and foundational art instruction.

Registration is open to campers from 14 to 18 years old who have just completed or are entering into grades 9–12.

Develop your creativity and refine your art abilities at Art Camp, which focuses on drawing and design fundamentals using proper skills and techniques. This art camp provides practical principles to apply now and throughout your future art endeavors.

Daily activities include observation exercises, drawing concepts, composition studies, and art history lessons—all from a Christian perspective. By learning traditional methods passed down from masters of the past, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills needed to continue improving your art. You’ll also be introduced to industry-standard digital technology in art computer labs.

What to Expect

Pensacola Christian College art faculty share their expertise to help you develop your abilities. They encourage creativity while emphasizing excellence and practice.

Art Camp is held at the PCC Visual and Performing Arts building, which features several galleries containing original masterworks for study and inspiration. Instructional Youth Outreach Ministry camp staff can answer questions about the works and explain techniques used.

However you spend your free time, you’ll be spending it with your newfound friends. You can explore the Sports Center—climb the rock wall, bowl with friends, cool off in the ice-skating rink, or make a splash at the water park. You can grab a smoothie at the Common Grounds Café and just hang out. Each day, daily challenges will be a time to come together and grow spiritually.

Show your work

As you prepare for Art Camp, you’re invited to bring one or two recent pieces to be evaluated in workshops by the camp instructional staff. Outstanding pieces brought from home or completed during camp may be selected for a special art show presented at the end of the week for campers and their families.
