Course Overview

The visual arts have been an avenue for communication since prehistoric times. In this camp, we will explore the many ways that artists use their work to communicate ideas. We will look at art from a variety of cultures and time periods, and see how the use of text and symbols can create powerful meaning in our work. Some of the artists we will explore include: Banksy, Barbara Kruger, Shepard Fairey, and Jenny Holzer.

Please Note: Niner Academy and many 49er Minor camps are considered college-preparatory and/or career readiness camp programs for teens. Often through guest speakers, during field trips, and through class and peer-driven discussion, we may discuss societal and social issues. Campers' opinions and perspectives may differ from those of their peers and/or guest speakers; we encourage open discussion during camp. We seek to establish a camp environment where all voices are heard and opinions are respected.
