A DELIGHTFULLY FUN week of creative art activities, fun and friendship. Bring your lunch and enjoy a day of challenging, unusual and exciting art projects, both inside and outside as weather permits. There will be no art camp on Good Friday. We have extended hours for those who need it, at no additional cost.

Sign up for only one day and/or days that you want. Each day this Camp has a theme for those parents-children looking for something unique.

Monday Two Dimensional Art

Tuesday Art and Science

Wednesday Art and Math

Thursday Three Dimensional Art

Note: Some of our activities take us outside as the spring weather permits. We may have to change certain planned activities, such as drawing in the City Park, depending on which day has the best weather prediction. We cannot know this more than a few days in advance.

FEES: $45 / child
GRADES: 1st - 3rd


This class is a wonderful opportunity to focus on a personal emblem created as a sculpture …a “totem”. Each participant will be guided through the design stage of “discovery”. The result will be a “stick totem” that becomes an image of what is important to the artist and who they are. This is so much fun that after you make one you just want to make more!

Tuesdays February 6 - 20, 2018 | 5:30 - 7:00 pm
FEES: $45 / child
GRADES: 4th - 6th


Learn the special art form of “Silhouette”. This art form has always had a unique place in the art world, and yet few people take the time to explore silhouettes. Each student will create an unusual and interesting landscape that has the dreamlike elements of a Surrealist painting. This art opportunity has a strong emphasis on composition while also allowing each student’s creativity to stretch, bend and expand in new ways.

Saturdays April 7 - 21, 2018 | 1:00 - 2:30 pm
FEES: $45 / child
GRADES: 4th - 6th


This class is a truly unique form of sculpture. Each participant will get to make their own animal form out of clay …but this is only the beginning of the fun! Each animal will be placed in a can with it’s own label. For our younger artists this becomes an opportunity to promote their favorite pet as they learn some of the important elements of product labeling.

Tuesdays April 10 - 24, 2018 | 5:30 - 7:00 pm
FEES: $45 / child
