Art camps for children will be offered at the Blue Line Gallery in Roseville this summer. All camps will be conducted Monday-Friday, mornings 9 a.m. to noon or 1-4 p.m., at the Blue Line Gallery, 405 Vernon St. in Roseville. All camps are taught by experienced teachers and professional artists. Each camp will include an opportunity on the last day of class where young participants will help install their final projects for exhibit in the Children’s Gallery, including a small artists’ reception. Camp fees are $172 or $162 with member discount. Additional material fees — varied by class — will be collected the first day of camp. Professional artist Linda Green will teach two camps. Known for her large, bold face paintings on canvas and furniture cubes as well as for her children’s classes, Green will teach “Faces,” June 22-26, 9 a.m. to noon (ages 9-12) and “Painting Abstractions,” July 20-24, 9 a.m. to noon (ages 12-16). Egyptian-born artist Maha Salem, also an experienced art instructor, will teach “Larger than Life,” June 22-26, 1-4 p.m. (ages 9-12) and “T-shirt Painting,” July 20-24, 1-4 p.m. (ages 5 and up; parents welcome). In “Larger than Life,” children will learn to study shapes and shadow to create paintings in the larger-than-life style of Georgia O’Keefe. Local science and art teacher, Jim Carroll, will teach how to texture book covers, hand stitch bindings and customize decorative pages in “Making Hand Bound Books,” held July 27-31, 9 a.m. to noon (ages 11-16).
