The Fairfield Art Association has scheduled several art classes and an art camp for children beginning in June at its art studio in the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center.

Tschopp. The creative communication art will be available for two age groups. Third through eighth grades will be 8:30-11:30 a.m. Monday and June 17. Preschool through second grade will have class 10-11:30 a.m. June 15 and June 22. Daily sessions for each are $10 for members and $12 for nonmembers.

A week-long art camp for kids in third through eighth grades, using different techniques of “Engineering Paper” will be 9:30-11:30 a.m. June 24-28 directed by artist Alicia Carradus.

Young artists can attend and learn a new paper engineering technique every day or pick the sessions they would like to attend.

The session schedule is:

June 24: Boxes and Layers. Turn two-dimensional paper into a three-dimensional scene.

June 25: Stacking Boxes — Pop-up City. Create a three-dimensional city that folds flat.

June 26: V Fold — Chomp! Make a moving mouth for a frog, monster or other creature.

June 27: Spiral. A technique that cascades three-dimensionally from one page to another.

June 28: Accordion Book. Add surprise to an accordion book by incorporating pop-up techniques.

The art camp fee is $40 for the week or $10 per day.
