Join us for our teen architecture room camp, where students will build an entire miniature room from the bottom up! Students will focus on finite details by working with a wide range materials, such as fibers and cloth, drawing, painting, and more. Design and develop your structure and get creative with your theme, all which will be nurtured by the teaching artist, Diane.
Looking to stay with us all day? Once a summer morning camp is done at noon, teens can volunteer with us and work with our younger campers in the afternoon. For more information, email email@example.com
About the Teaching Artist
Diane Lufrano has been an artist since the age of five, when she first began drawing everything in the classroom, including the teacher. She started her own business at the age of 14 painting album covers on the backs of denim jackets, and sometimes would paint up to ten jackets per week, throughout high school . Diane attended Pratt Institute, where she received her degree in graphic design and illustration. After that, she received her masters degree in art education from Kean University, and , most recently her art supervision certificate from Rider University. Diane has been teaching art at Grover Middle School in the West Windsor Plainsboro school district since 2002, and before that she taught in New York. She founded the Got Art ? Camp which she ran in the district for ten years. Diane has been painting since childhood, and really loves painting cityscapes and landscapes that blur the lines of abstraction and realism. Working from photographs she takes from around the tri-state area, she enjoys painting the hard edges of buildings and combining those techniques with the backgrounds of the natural world and other unworldly elements. Diane loves working with young people, and inspiring them to disconnect from technology and use their hands and their minds to find excitement, engagement , and creativity through their art.
