Looking for a summer camp for your child that is fun, gets them outside, and helps to nurish their creative side?Students will learn and grow with various techniques to draw, paint, sculpt, and explore print-making through guided projects. Many of the drawing projects involve drawing of live animals we observe in the studio such as ducks, turtles, lizards, etc. Students will also have an daily opportunities to work with a team to build projects from nature while exploring how science and art work together such as creating a pendulum to paint with, or a structurally sound and beautiful bridge made of bark, moss, flowers and rocks. Many various sculpture and painting projects will give the chance for each student to really explore their unleashed creativity. Each day ends with a time of quiet observation and sketching under the cool shade of the trees to sketch from nature. 
* Dress for mess from shirts to shoes. Art can be messy, also kids like to spend time outside in the creek bed and forest area during breaks and group projects. Water sandals are ideal. On very hot days we may run through the sprinkler on breaks, students may bring swimsuits and towels if they wish.
* the studio is cold in the morning even on warm days, bring a sweatshirt.
*sunscreen and hats are not needed as we are in the shade of the woods 98% of the time.
Please keep in mind, if for what ever reason your summer plans change and you can not come to camp, refunds will be given up to 30 days prior. After that, credit will be given toward other camps or classes.
COVID notes:

My concern for your safety is a priority. Due to these uncertain times, Our summer art camps will be held completely outside with social distancing. 

We will also take the following additional precautions:

sanitizing frequently, each student will get their own pack of materials to use for the week, no-touch temperature checks upon arrival and at lunch, typical COVID-19 questions, and keeping well spaced. The bathroom will be sanitized after each use and there will be a balance of mask time and non-mask time depending on the activity. Non-mask time will be when campers can spread out for independent art time so they can have time to breath the fresh air of the forest!
