Welcome to our favorite program – CAMP! Whether you choose our all day camp, mini camp or clay camp you will be pleasantly surprised with the slower and more relaxed feeling in the air because it’s SUMMERTIME! Everyone gets to slow down, be themselves and just express themselves artistically under the loving guidance of their artist/teacher/camp counselor. Friendships are fostered, games are played and everyone gets plenty of space to just be. We structure our teaching/learning/doing with hands on instruction with students assisting with set up/clean up and being a part of our curriculum. We have various artists stop in for amazing lessons (full day camp only), walking field trips (full day camp only) and creating with different materials.
Our art school is located in our charming 1914 historic craftsman with wrap around porch, swing, generous yards and lots of hang out spaces that we take full advantage of during our camp programs. Our clay camp is offered in the converted garage next door with it’s 10 wheel, 6 sinks and lots of space to make usable art.
