Past Summer Camp offerings for 2018

THE ART OF CLIMBING: ON-THE-DRAW

Partner Camp with Salt Lake Art Academy

Week-long camp from July 9 to 13

Climb and observe the beauty of vertical movement while developing figure drawing skills! We’ll start most days at the gym by using our bodies to understand vertical movement, good footwork, and balance to learn how to be a better climber. After our muscles have warmed up and we’ve begun to develop an understanding of the anatomy beneath our skin, we then will break out our sketchbooks to create gestural studies of figures on the wall. Students will also take turns creating interesting climbing poses for their classmates to sketch while top roping or bouldering. This class will be held at The Front Climbing Club.

– Time: 9am – 12pm
– Cost: $225/Week
