Programs & Schedule

Due to building renovations on our campus this summer, the Powhatan Camp Program will be scaled back for the 2018 summer season. We will be back to our normal camp program in the summer of 2019. Until then, this summer (2018) we will offer an engaging and creative Arts Camp!

Taught by artists Ryan Royston and Bettina Wagner, students will enjoy working with clay, charcoal and paint. Our camp will include a pottery camp and an outdoor painting and drawing camp. The following are the camp descriptions:

Pottery Camp
Pottery Camp at Powhatan School is a unique opportunity for children to work as artists in our new ceramic studio. Each week, young students will learn a variety of ceramic techniques. Children will create on the potter’s wheel and use several hand building methods as they unleash their imaginations to design wonderful works of art. Artists will make at least three pieces of art (and more if they create it). Each class is limited to 10 students. All materials are provided by Powhatan.

Outdoor Art Camp
Outdoor Art Camp will be held on the Crocker Conservatory (part of Powhatan’s 67 acre campus) at the Anderson Pavilion. Based on the artistic medias of drawing and painting, this class offers a range of subjects which the students will consider when spending time outdoors to discover an object they are interested in sketching and painting. During the week, students will explore the use of charcoal to gesture these subjects, and ultimately convert the drawings into a final painting using colors they have mixed. Each class is limited to 10 students. All materials are provided by Powhatan.
