Summer ART-ventures for Kids

Summer ART-ventures for Kids provides affordable half-day programs, Monday through Friday, overflowing with unique summer art fun. These art-filled weeks are designed around a single exciting theme. ART-ventures for Kids helps children make the connection between art and the amazing world around us! We believe the best route to expanding a child's creativity is through exploring and experimenting with as many art forms, tools and techniques as possible. As a result, our summer art-ventures weeks expose children to a world of artistic wonder while we encourage their own original ideas and their own unique perception and interpretation of art.

"Happiness...it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.” -Franklin D. Roosevelt

With a dash of whimsy and a dollop of fun, we help art explorers think creatively about art and the amazing role it plays in our wonderful world!

Camp Descriptions
Faires and Dragons Art-ventures
Enter the fantasy world of imagination where fairies fly and unicorns roam. Art-venturers unleash their inner elves as they conjure up fire-breathing dragons, transform colorful clay into silly goblin masks, and create winged fairies or armored knight dolls. Sculpt bedazzling unicorns with rainbow manes, design witch or wizard figurines, and build wooden fairy houses with real shells, stones, moss and more. Paint ceramic unicorn banks and create your own dragon or mermaid t-shirts! With the aid of some very magical potions and spells (i.e. materials and techniques), campers experience painting, drawing, stained glass, ceramic, fabric, and clay art. Enjoy an enchanted week of two and three dimensional works of art! Fairies and Dragons storytelling is included, as well as surprises and humor. Fun, fantasy- filled art-ventures!


Grr...Buzz...Hiss...Roar Art-ventures
Animal lovers and art explorers, take a walk on the wild side. Visit the jungle, go on safari and even travel back in time to the Dinosaurs. Discover where your creativity will take you while creating 2 and 3-dimensional butterflies, birds, snakes, frogs and lizards, lions and countless other kooky creatures! Paint 3-D wooden dinosaur puzzles, build giraffe pencil holders, and create super cool boxes disguised as elephants. Plus, design your very own animal t-shirt using a totally unique “hands-on” technique, and so much more! Campers use an amazing variety of art materials, textures and techniques while experimenting with clay and paints, ceramic and fabric art, wood, oil pastels, stenciling, collage, watercolor, decoupage and more. These cool and playful art-ventures include fun facts about the animals, storytelling, and always humor.
