Summer Weekly Art Camps - There is still room enroll today!

Created especially for children in grades K-5, Summer Big Kid Weekly Workshops promote artistic expertise while helping children develop perceptual, story-telling, creative problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Big Kid classes deepen your child's experience in the arts as well as other subjects. While delving into a juicy, tactile material or engaging theme, such as Photography, Puppetry, Clay, Sculpture or Book Arts, we focus on the personal discovery, technical skill, creative thinking, and self-confidence that grow out of the individual creative process.

Art Studio, Just for Twos, and Side by Side are offered year-round in the mornings and early afternoons for children ages 22 months to 5 years old. The studio is set up into multiple stations, as children are invited to explore a wide range of materials, such as homemade playdough (new color each week!); a shared painting area; a variety of printmaking techniques, and different kinds of sculpture. Some stations, like painting and playdough, remain constant from week to week in order to gain familiarity with and mastery of materials. Activities like collage, drawing, printmaking and sculpture vary from week to week. For young learners, the combination of familiar and new materials stimulates brain development and encourages the natural propensity for play. Each class ends with a snack and story.
