Arts Programs | Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp (2024)

Choose a Minor

An important part of an artist’s development is creative exploration of other areas beyond their chosen discipline. This focus can help a student build new skills that indirectly compliment their artistic knowledge base, while also providing an opportunity to learn more about themselves and their interests. A student’s instructional program at Blue Lake is completed by the choice of a minor.

Camp Bernstein (Junior Camp)

In addition to daily recreation and free time, Bernstein campers also participate in a minor class. The minor class introduces campers to a new discipline through creative projects, games, lessons, and group activities. All Bernstein campers are required to take a minor, and there is no additional fee for the course.

Central Camp Minors

While the majority of Central Camp students choose a minor, campers who do not enroll in a minor class are supervised in structured activities during that period which include camp crafts, group projects, hikes, or individual practice. All campers, regardless of schedule, have additional time for rest, relaxation, store, and recreation later in the afternoon. The fee for Central Camp minors is $99 for ten class sessions.

Faculty

Blue Lake’s faculty members come from universities, colleges, professional ensembles, and private and public schools from around the country. They serve as motivators and role-models for the campers by teaching artistry, discipline, and appreciation of formal study. In addition to instructing small and large group classes, faculty members regularly demonstrate mastery of their craft through exhibition and performance in concert, master class, studio demonstration, and recital settings. Their goal is to motivate through engaging instruction, sending them home with an incentive to pursue their art with new enthusiasm. Most Blue Lake faculty members have completed their Masters and Doctorate degrees and have extensive teaching and performance experience.
