Summer Camps


THE NEW 2018 SCHEDULE IS UP!

WE ARE READY FOR ANOTHER AWESOME SUMMER ART CAMP EXPERIENCE! Come on out for some super funtastic art adventures. We can't wait to explore new amazing art mediums and projects. The best part about summer art camp, besides all the fun, is that we get to do so much more than the regular school year art program. We do not have the space and storage constraints and are able to work on more 3D projects that need to dry between sessions and be worked on a little each day! This opens up a much bigger world of art opportunities! WE SIMPLY LOVE SUMMER ART CAMP!!!

Positive feedback and encouragement spur on amazing artists into a relaxed creative mode where great things can happen. We provide nurturing guidance to each student. We don't do it "for" them, but give them a safe space where they're free to do it themselves. We will help with a line here or there if extreme frustration is mounting, but in this environment, artists rise to each new and creative challenge. We promise fun memories and beautiful art your child will cherish for a lifetime. So clear the walls - Amazing Art is coming home soon!

Join us for a fun filled week of Artastic adventure. We explore a wide variety of art media and celebrate creative expression in each camp. From the Messy to the Masters and the Fantasy to our Natural World; our weekly themes embrace your child's individuality!

ALL AM (or Morning) CAMPS ARE 9am - 12pm & ALL PM (or Afternoon) CAMPS ARE 1pm - 4pm. "Stay and Create" Campers, bring a sack lunch and hang out between AM & PM camps.

                            CAMPS WILL BE HELD AT OUR NEW FACILITY THIS SUMMER!                                                        8115 E. BRAINERD RD, SUITE 13, CHATTANOOGA, TN 37421                     

Be on the lookout for some exciting events where the kids can come out to our new art studio. We have LOTS of FUN on the horizon!

You may also call to be manually registered before then at 423-645-7779.

Session A - May 29th - June 1st / AM / Camp 1 / Tuesday - Friday

"Creative Sampler Camp!" If you can’t decide which camp theme is for you, then this might just be The One! In our Sampler Camp we try our hand at as much as possible all without a specific theme. The elements of design are explored and we dive deep into the color wheel too. Certain colors bring about different emotions and meanings and we can use this in our art. Drawing, Painting, Collage, Tie-Dye and too much to list here will all be included - even a super cool exploding book! We will also incorporate some 3D art this week because that is always a favorite among the students. Get ready to be WOWED by your child's imagination and creativity as we ignite some serious creative fun! As always, one art piece will come home framed in a lovely wooden frame - ready to hang on your walls for years of admiration! I expect this camp will soon become a summer favorite!   FOR AGES K-8th

Session A - May 29th - June 1st / PM / Camp 2 / Tuesday - Friday

"Beach Party Art Camp!"So you love the ocean and all that lives beneath the waves. Come along as we explore the great blue sea and make fabulous art in the theme of the sun & the surf, design our own surf boards and make sand art! We use lots of different media in this camp including;  Painting, Mixed Media, Clay, a Metal Wind Chime, and much more. We are even bringing back our AWESOME glass and shell collage art that is all sealed in a clear resin preserving it forever and giving it the look of being sealed under glass. It's hard to explain, but the results will simply WOW you!!! This camp always makes a BIG SPLASH, so don’t miss it!!! You will receive one art piece professionally finished and ready to hang on your wall too!   FOR AGES K-8th

Session B - June 4th - 7th / AM / Camp 3 

“Summer of SLIME!" So you LOVE to make slime. You want every type of glue, glitter, contact solution, shaving cream and MORE! Your parents fuss because all their bowls, measuring utensils and tupperware goes missing. Ask me how I know... I live with a slime-obsessed child too. I think I'll form a support group next! In this NEW camp, we will make a new and different slime every day. From Galaxy Slime to Fluffy Slime, we will even make Butter Slime and Edible Slime! Slime is not all we will be doing this week though. We will also tie-dye shirts and marble paper. Painting, Mixed Media Art and Sculpture will also be a explored. We have a fabulous parrot fish project planned. "Why" you ask? Because the parrot fish sleeps in a thick sleeping bag made of slime every night, of course! Get ready for a week of SLIMY FUN & ART!   FOR AGES K-8th

Session B - June 4th - 7th / PM / Camp 4

Session C - June 11th - 14th / AM / Camp 5 

“Cool Clay and SCULPTURE!" Sculpture, Sculpture & More Sculpture!!! We will dive into many different ways to create 3-dimensional art in this popular & exciting camp. Every summer sculpture camp is a huge hit - probably due to the inability to dive very deep into sculpture during the school year. We will work with loads of different and unexpected materials in this multi- media workshop that will have you creating, building and making your very own amazing “Sculpture Works." Get ready for a variety of 3-D fun including; Paper Mache, Ceramic-Air Dry Clay, Sculpey, Wire Sculpture, Wood, Metal, Model Magic Animals, Games and much, more! 2-D art will also be explored including a very cool project that starts out 2-D and has parts built out into frieze-like sculptural elements. These are always a camp favorite, but are different every year. We do not repeat projects exactly so our artists always have variety. Not to be missed!!! FOR AGES K-8th
