The Art Educators of Iowa and the Des Moines Art Center invite energetic and motivated young artists to participate in the tenth annual All-State Art Camp. This camp is especially designed for students interested in pursuing the visual arts in college and those preparing portfolios for the Art Educators of Iowa All-State Art Competition. Students entering grades 10 – 12 in the fall of 2012 are eligible.

In the mornings develop your personal style, under the guidance of Tracy Duran, as you learn the fundamentals of oil painting. During the afternoons study with Daniel Weiss to work at finding your artistic voice on a project related to your personal interests in drawing.

Duran is the visiting artist at the Des Moines Art Center and a painter
with an MFA from California State University at Fullerton. She is represented by Moberg Gallery. Weiss teaches visual studies at Johnston High School and is an accomplished artist with an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts.
