AGA Education & Learning

Spring ArtBreak Camp | Fibre Arts

March 28 - April 1

AGA ArtBreak Camps empower campers to take the lead in the creative process, discovering the world around them through art activities, imaginative exercises and projects related to specific themes. Focusing on student interactions and personal experiences, these camps build bridges between art, ideas, and our community. 

This spring, learn about the history and context of fibre within the larger folk-art tradition, develop new skills, and experiment with innovative approaches to traditional practices. Work in a wide range of mediums and materials including natural and synthetic fibre and yarns, dyeing, hand and machine stitching, transfers, soft sculpture, weaving and more. Create a series of artworks on the theme of your choosing while developing your skill set.
