Art camps

As long as I can remember, I have had art supplies at my fingertips. Watercolors, acrylics, paper, scissors, glue, etc.
I remember a summer day when my brother and I went to a nearby dry creek bed and hauled dried mud home and
carved sculptures from it.

My camps are for K-5th elementary school students, with the exception of the Dr. Seuss camp which includes 4 year olds. I love introducing kids to art and artists and especially love pairing art with a book. Every camp will have books paired with it for read alouds.
I am an elementary reading teacher so anytime I can get kids reading, I think it is a good thing!

Campers will be introduced to different media. Paints, pastels, collage and sculpture, and printmaking.
The focus changes every week but rest assured, your little artist will likely come home a little messy.
