July 25 – 28 | 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
About The Program
The SCA takes on the afternoon with art-making centered around our Michigan landscape. Try your hand at paper-making using recycled papers and plant fibers, create prints inspired by our state’s wildlife with artist Trevor Grabill, and paint the landscape outdoors “en plein air.” You’ll snack on locally grown fruits and veggies and specialty treats throughout the week! A truly collaborative outdoor experience that’s rooted in the amazing natural wonders of our Great Lakes state!
Students must bring a lunch, snack, and a water bottle. A second healthy afternoon snack will be provided by the SCA. Drop-off will be at the ODC at 9:00 am, and pick-up at 4:00 pm. On Friday only, Pick-up will be at the SCA at 4:00 pm for a closing exhibition of student art.
Taylor Scamehorn (she/her) is an interdisciplinary artist in Kalamazoo, MI with a BFA in photography. Her focuses are in drawing, photography, sculpture, printmaking and papermaking, and she believes that the pursuit of education across media sets artists’ creative ideas free to be realized in whichever form best communicates them.
Trevor Grabill is a printmaker and teacher in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Their work, primarily wood block prints, is inspired by the natural and social landscape of the Great Lakes region. You can find more information and examples of their work at the website below.
