Summer 2015 - New - We listened to your suggestions and we've changed the ages for the 4 day themed sessions. We are now offering a younger session for kids 7-10 and an older session for kids 11-14. If you have a child slightly younger or older and you think they would love these sessions please email us to discuss. Our days are fast paced and we do art the whole time - it's the perfect summer adventure for art loving kids!

All younger sessions will include drawing, painting, and 3D crafts related to the theme. We pride ourselves on developing cool projects (you won't be gluing fun foam door signs here). Projects could include: papier mache, Sculpey clay, Shrinky Dinks, printmaking, mosacis, jewelry, and more. We're testing projects now getting everything ready for summer.

Older sessions are designed primarily for middle school students. The projects and drawings are age appropriate and fun.

We also offer Friday Mini Camps Just for 5&6 Year Olds - this is a great way to try out the program. There are Tuesday and Wednesday evening drawing classes fro ages 7-14 - we have a younger class for 7-10 year olds and an older class at the same time for 11-14 year olds. Convenient for siblings, friends, and carpooling!
