2019 Summer Camps Were Awesome!

We had a wonderful and creative time at camp this summer! Next summer will be fabulous too and we're already planning. If there was something you or your child especially loved email me so we include it next summer. AND, if there is something you would like added or considered for next summer, send that feedback my way too. I love to know what you and your children most want :)

I am keeping the Summer 2019 Schedule and descriptions below so people can know what to expect next summer until we get the new schedule up. Thank you for sharing your AMAZING ARTISTS with us once again. Summer Camp is SOOOOO FUN!!!

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! We also get to try a wider variety of art materials and smaller class size while at the studio. 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.                     

We have LOTS of FUN on the horizon!

Session A - June 3rd - June 6th / AM / Camp 1 / Monday - Thursday

“Mom Would NEVER Let Me Do This At Home!" We’ve brainstormed all new projects for this popular and fun camp. We will be doing our giant abstract canvas, but have a new way to burst our paint-filled balloons this summer and to add more individualized touches to our finished pieces. Art at its "not in my home" messiest. Enjoy the fantastic finished products without the clean-up! Our most popular camp! Do you want to create REALLY COOL stuff all the time, but often hear, “That will make too big of a mess. Not Today.” or “Maybe later?” Believe it or not, my kids hear that from me too, but not during this week of camp. We’ve got BIG PLANS and big drippy zones to keep things protected that need to be protected:) Many different kinds of ART will be explored including Ice Painting, Bleeding Tissue Paper Creations, Tie-Dye T-shirts, (safe) exploding paint canisters & Messy Plaster Cast Strips turned into amazing sculptures! Don’t worry kids, we will be throwing & squirting paint onto an abstract masterpiece this summer too - think Jackson Pollock! Plus too much more to list here! Don’t worry, once our art is dry it will be Messy No More - Just Many Marvelous Masterpieces to be hung, worn or admired! Wear old clothes to this camp - they will not come home the same. And be prepared - many amazing art pieces will be heading your way!   FOR AGES K-8th

Session A - June 3rd - June 6th / PM / Camp 2 / Monday - Thursday

“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
