2016 – We have 3 awesome art programs for the Summer:

  1. CAMP-Classes – small week-long classes in the mornings – 9 am to noon
  2. The Summer ART Buffet – a drop-in class every weekday afternoon
  3. Creative Workshops – 3-day, weekend workshops for teens & adults

Our 2016 Summer program begins Tuesday, May 31 and ends Friday, July 29.

CAMP-Classes – mornings

  • Art Garden – age 4 & 5
  • Art Bugs – age 6 – 8
  • Color Camp – age 8 – 12
  • Toon Camp – age 9 – 14

We mashed together two great ideas. We took the week-long Summer Camp idea, and combined it with a fantastic art class. We have 10-12 students per CAMP-Class with 2 instructors in the younger age groups. The fun is like a camp, yet the instruction is very personalized! Our CAMP-classes teach kids real art concepts while having a blast.

Each CAMPClass is 9:00 AM to Noon Monday through Friday. See below for all the schedules. Please call or text for availability if it is mid-May or later. Prices are below in the descriptions, and include all supplies! (Please note the earlier time for starting if you’ve been in our program before). Sibling discount is $15 off the regular price.

Workshops – weekends

Our specialized in-depth workshops for teens and adults are great for delving deeper into difficult subjects. We offer several workshops that are 10 hours each. 4 – 6:30 pm Thursday and Friday, and 12:00 noon to 5 on Saturday

  • Painting Trees – June 9, 10 & 11
    • This workshop helps landscape artists understand the anatomy of a tree. Learning bare-tree structure is like understanding the bones for the figure. Then adding something as complex as thousands of leaves is very difficulut. An artist needs some tricks and methods which we will learn to draw and also paint. Ink, charcoal, watercolor and acrylics are used.
    • $280
  • Creative Summit – June 16, 17 & 18
    • Do you want to take your work to the next level? This workshop will spark your imagination and give you new inspiration for breaking outside of the box. How does an artist move from realism to self-expression and add their own creative vision? Find out here!
    • $280
  • Figure Drawing – July 14, 15 & 16
    • Most of our time will be spent working on sketches and drawings from live models (wearing leotards) as well as drawing demonstrations by the instructor. Various techniques are used such as contour line and shading to create realistic and expressive figurative work. Ink, charcoal, pencil and watercolor is used.
    • $298
  • Easy Artists Perspective – July 21, 22 & 23
    • Understanding how to make structures appear to have an accurate illusion of depth can be very frustrating. Typical classes are too complex to be practical and are designed for architects. We will demystify and explain all this left-brained stuff in a way that can be used by the right-brained artist! We’ll create drawings in pencil and ink.
    • $280

Covering specialized subjects, our workshops go further in-depth for these specialized subjects than we are able to in our regular classes. The students who have attended have raved about how much they’ve enjoyed themselves and how much they’ve learned! If you have an interest in taking your work to the next level, then a workshop is for you.

New! Longer camps.

We’ve added a half hour to all of our camps this year, so they begin at 9 and go a full 3 hours to 12 noon. Drop off is at 8:45 or later.

Art Garden

Plant the seeds for a big harvest of art in your kids. Each day during camp, we make art projects that grow from the heart and bloom with color. Students will create designs, paint flowers and bugs, as well as discover fun ways to make new artwork. All supplies included.

Art Bugs

Explore the world of art in paint and paper, and draw from a bug’s perspective. We begin the week creating lots of pictures and painting different colors. Each day, we add a section to our giant butterfly poster, and on the last day, there’s a really “big” surprise. All supplies included.

Color Camp

Color your world! Learn what makes colors look great by mixing paints each day to make a bunch of beautiful color swatches. You’ll use these in creating a large poster mosaic of a colorful animal. At the end of the week you’ll make an original painted t-shirt with your own design. All supplies, including artist’s acrylic paint, tools and t-shirt are included.

Toon Camp

Jump into the world of cartooning. Learn how to develop characters, give them expression, and make them come to life. You’ll create characters in air-dry clay to take home, as well as on paper. Finish the week creating your own comic book with a color cover! The week of work is collected and bound in a take-home book.

Payment for CAMPclasses

We don’t have a shopping cart where you can add things a la carte, so there are several combinations of camps available in the drop-down options. All prices are set at the Earlybird specials.
