Creating Art is a fun activity...
but these camps are more than just fun!
Some days it gets a little messy...
and we have music going
and conversation and laughter.
The atmosphere is almost party-like, and at the end there's a beautiful work of art produced!
The attitude of every student is to have fun and explore their creativity, and they also encourage and help each other! I'm usually amazed by the kindness -
there's more than art being learned here.
While teaching, I balance technique with creativity, and
apprentice these future artists on the basics of drawing,
painting and sculpture.
All of the materials are provided for each project.
Drawing is an activity we will work on for a part of every week. I can teach many drawing secrets that will quickly raise your child’s skill level.
This will give them a lot of confidence with any of the other mediums that we work with.
Besides drawing basics we will be using other dry color media such as chalk and oil pastels.
We may be painting in watercolor and acrylics,
and we will do sculpture in a couple of mediums.
Each week we do different activities with different mediums, so if you register for 2 weeks,
different lessons will be in each week
(See the Themes Schedule below).
These are real art materials,
and we will be producing real art, not kids crafts.
These classes are limited to 6 students per class.
In this way I can assure you that each student
will receive individual instruction.
Art Camp is designed for ages 7 and up
most of the activities are
too advanced for a child younger than 7.

Art Camp Has a different theme every week -
Themes will not change,
but some projects and the materials we work with may, because I will sometimes design a lesson specifically for the students in that class.
A note for students who have been in my camps before: if you've already done any of these projects it is possible for you to do something completely different, using the materials that are planned for that class. You already know that I encourage creativity and bravery. I'm excited to work with you again!
Where in the World?
Session 1, June 22-26 (sold out),
and Session 5, July 20-24
Find yourself in a different country each day and uncover the cultural clues to determine where in the world you are!
We will draw, sculpt, paint, and even learn a couple of words from the country of the day. We may not be able to travel there in person, but we CAN travel around our fascinating globe in other ways - and explore the arts from different cultures.
Where will you be? Japan? Iceland? Peru? Just wait and see!
Drawing, painting, and sculpture are all included in this camp.
Colorful, Confident, Creative YOU!
Session 2, June 29 - July 3 (sold out),
and Session 4, July 13-17
You have a creative voice inside of you that is uniquely yours! Let’s have fun exploring ways to express it.
We’ll get inspired by the work of some famous artists (they were all unique, too!) and then, we’ll produce our own art, adding imagination and a ton of creativity as we make our own personal masterpieces.
Drawing, painting, and sculpture are all included in this camp. We also explore the basics of art structure, such as line, shape, value, texture, pattern, space, and color.
Fairies, Mermaids, Small Animals and Under the Sea
Session 3, July 6-10,
and Session 6, July 27-31
Sprinkle yourself with pixie dust and come along as we create our own mythical mushroom fairyland or sandy underwater city.
What small animals dwell in a fairyland? What creatures share the sea with mermaids? This could get very interesting...
Drawing, painting, and sculpture are all included in this camp. I’m imagining lots of shiny papers and amazing color!

Celluclay (paper pulp based clay)
Chalk and Oil Pastels
Watercolor, Gouache, and Acrylic Paint
