Express Yourself – 5 Day Art Camp

Monday, August 22 - Friday, August 26


Escape summer boredom to a week-long art retreat of self-expression and educational creative fun for art makers! 

Cassandra Russell, Mixed Media Artist of over 20 years and creator of The Art Journalist Training School will be hosting a Mixed Media Art Camp with various art activities exploring drawing, watercolours, collage, painting on canvas and art journaling. Campers will uncover the principles of design, form, perspective, tone, value, symbols, colour, text and more to create brilliant images for mini artist journals to large murals.

In-person live tutorials of techniques like printmaking, transfers and templates will also be taught to deepen the students personal artistry abilities. This knowledge will build their art skills for life. Art journaling is the perfect place to express your emotions, thoughts and feelings – (this is considered a great Self-Care technique.)

Mixed media is a term used to describe artworks composed from a combination of different media or material. These advanced techniques involve a specific process that will be taught step by step live. Varied materials like cloth, wood, paper, etc., are used to create mixed media art forms like assemblages, recycling, journaling, and collages.

This 5 day art experience allows students to discover their potential, and develop artmaking and critical thinking skills.

Students have the opportunity to learn from Cassandra’s years of art development and dedication. Her approach to art instruction is student-led and focuses on traditional and contemporary artmaking techniques and concepts. This learning is supported by strongly adding to the students’ own personal style. She focuses on student interests and needs, by encouraging them to voice their artistic vision with her.

Painting supplies included. (Approx. $100 worth)


Ages: 13-18 YEARS

TIME: 9AM – 4PM (30 HOURS)


The camp is at The Maker’s Mark in Newmarket, ON
