Arteza Art Camp
Arteza’s first-ever art camp gave artists and crafters of all ages and skill levels the chance to get one-on-one instruction from some of the most popular art professionals in the industry. This free online summer art program provided lessons, videos and blogs on a variety of media, including watercolor, acrylics, gouache, drawing pencils, colored pencils, polymer clay and art markers. Campers got the opportunity to follow along with step-by-step instruction as well as meet their instructors via stream lessons. By posting their works on social media with the hashtag #ArtezaCamp, they entered into a contest with the chance to win some amazing art supplies!
If you couldn’t attend all the courses, click on the links below to catch up.

He’s a gifted artist who at a very young age discovered he had psychokinetic powers (Shhh no one knows). One day while drawing in his bedroom he noticed the desk was shaking, his color pencils would float and the sketchbook would dance right in front of his eyes! It took him some practice to control his powers but then his life took another drastic turn of events! Surprisingly after ordering art materials from Arteza.com, a strange black box with the Arteza logo on it came instead! He opened it and there he found a pair of bracelets made of some strange metal with 3 gem stones on each of them, Red 🔴, Green 🟢 and Blue 🔵 A mysterious voice in the box or in his mind whispered: “put them on” and bang! 💥 RGB Kid was born! 😃 A letter in the bottom of the box was also found telling him to “seek his destiny and turn this world free from evil with the power of art”. Fused with his psychokinetic powers, these magical RGB bracelets gave him the special ability to draw on thin air WITH HIS FINGERS and turn his creations to life! He could fly by drawing a giant bird to carry him 🦅, he could fight the bad guys with the help of a T-Rex 🦖 to scare them away, or he could protect himself with an impenetrable shield 🛡 just to name a few of his awesome creative superpowers since art has no limits! 🖌🎨 Who knows where the RGB gem stones come from 😳 or what the mysterious letter from Arteza meant by saying “Seek your destiny”? 🤯 All we know now is this is just the beginning of an out-of-this-world creative adventure! ✍️✌️🔴🟢🔵” - @andanyworks
