Weekly Classic Art Camp
classic2 We wait all year for art camp in the summer!

You can register for as many weeks as you like — paintings and projects will vary weekly.

The day begins with a painting project in the morning, based on either a particular artist - let's paint Starry Nights like Vincent Van Gogh! — or a concept, such as a still-life or a self-portrait. There are also craft projects - paper-maché, wood sculpture, sculpey clay, mosaics, collage, painted vases, bookmaking, etc. The day is interspersed with art games, recess, story time, and smaller crafts such as beads. The only thing you need to bring is enthusiasm and a nut-free lunch! The day is relaxed, creative, and fun!

We have been using the Yurt for art camps every summer, and it's a wonderful space.
