Meet the Artists

Let’s get to know some masters of art! Each day will highlight a different artist from a different time and place, and explore their methods and materials. We’ll look at Kandinsky’s circles and lines, O’Keefe’s bold landscapes, and Faith Ringgold’s “story quilts,” among others. Using these works as inspiration we will create our own masterpieces in varied techniques.**Early Drop-Off and Late Pick-Up are available to extend the day from 8:30AM to 4:30PM. $35/week for either morning or afternoon, $65/week for both.

Camps for 8 to 10 Year Olds

Campers are guided by faculty artists to broaden their use of materials, sustain projects over multiple days, and work creatively together. More reflection and planning is encouraged, while their imaginative energy is celebrated through projects with lots of camper voice and choice!

What does the week look like?
Campers create individually and collaboratively with the guidance of a lead faculty artist and assistant. Tuesday afternoons and Wednesday mornings a visiting artist guides a project in a different media (usually clay).

9:30am-12 noon: We start the day with a morning meeting and then get busy with hands-on exploration for our morning art session.
Mid-morning: Snack break
12:00-1:00pm: Lunch and outdoor play
1:00-3:15pm: Afternoon art session
3:30: Regular pick-up

The week concludes with an art show, when campers get to share their experiences and creations with family and friends
