Spend the Summer in Art Camp!

Mastering Manga

Grades 2-4

Do you love manga, anime, or Pokemon characters? Well, this is the week for you! Come and learn some new fun tips and artful tricks while exploring the cartoon world of stylized animals and humans. We’ll explore different media while focusing heavily on our drawing skills of those fun and colorful characters you see in comic books, cartoons, and video games. Gotta Draw Them All!

Empowering Art

Grades 2-4

Campers will rock this week by celebrating inspirational artists from around the world! Join us as we create one-of-a-kind functional and artsy crafts, while celebrating artists who work in a variety of media. We’ll choose fun and funky motivational quotes based on what inspires us. Next, we will dabble in crafting unique art to fill campers’ personal spaces with positivity. Also, we will create and embellish fabulous journals, perfect for any aspiring writer, and much, much more! It’s guaranteed to be a colorful week of creativity, positivity, and empowerment!

Aloha Art

Grades 2-4

Jump on board and sail away with us on an artistic adventure to a sandy beach with swaying palm trees. We will spend the week learning about the tropics while creating fun projects that involve the sea, sun, and surfing. We will even learn about the state flower of Hawaii and tiki masks as we relax and create beautiful projects inspired by the Aloha state.

The Art of Giving: Microloans

Grades 5-8

This camp combines being an artist, a global citizen, and an entrepreneur. We will begin our session with a visit to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to learn about world issues and the work being done to resolve them. We will then go back to camp and create our own company, complete with a logo and marketing strategy, which creates original handmade artwork for sale. The money we make will be used to fund a “microloan” program; small loans given to people in developing countries.

Where the Wild Things ART

Grades 2-4

It’s a week of imaginary creatures!  We will design and sketch our animals, then use plaster, paint and various materials to make them as REAL as can be!  We will combine them to make a story about our creatures that we can take home on the last day!

Minecraft

Grades 4-6

Think Minecraft is just a video game? Think again. Create, explore, and put your problem-solving skills to the test by building an adventure map and resource packs at this exciting week of tech-focused camp. Take control of your world with command blocks and redstone. Many schools – even universities – are adopting the Minecraft platform to help with reading writing, math, and science. So our campers will learn valuable skills while having a blast!  We will combine our tech time with supervised outside play, pool time, sports, and “techtivities.”

Art of Israel

Grades 2-4

Let’s study the nation of Israel! Using various mediums such as painting, batik, and mosaics, we will create hamsas, mezuzahs, challah covers, and a giant mural of the country. On our final day, we will spend time learning to make our favorite dishes and enjoy a bite of Israel.

Castles and Dragons

Grades 2-4

Take a fantastic trip to a magical realm of knights, castles, dragons, wizards, kings, and queens. In this camp we’ll make maps, build scale models of castles, and sculpt our very own pet dragons!
