Summer Art Camps for kids ages 6+ take artist campers on a week-long journey into the wonderment of art play with a purpose. What does a student take away from this week of making art? They capture and hold feelings of success through exploring new concepts using a variety of professional art materials. Innovative problem solving absolutely happens here.

Our teachers guide students through carefully designed explorations of the fundamentals of art making, encouraging them to hold their innate creativity in confidence as they grow. A child’s investigations into this wide variety of media develop creative, outside-the-box problem-solving skills and nurture imagination in an inspirational, supportive atmosphere that addresses the individual needs of every student. In most kid art businesses, students copy samples only to get cookie-cutter results. Never at Studio Arts! Kids will come home with several original pieces of art each week.

Special Notes:

– If your young artist wants to stay all day, take advantage of the supervised lunch hour between camps ($35 for the week/per child). You bring the lunch and we provide the supervision.

– Please provide a small, non-refrigerated snack and drink daily. We provide filtered tap water. Making art makes kids hungry. No peanuts, please.

Wheel and Hand-build Camp: Water

The camp is fantastic for kids for so many reasons. Developmentally, working in clay assists hand-eye coordination. Give a kid a lump of clay and their brain slows down to allow inspiration to flourish. Our projects, a mix of instruction on the potter’s wheel and hand building, are designed with fun and learning in mind. (If by chance there is work  still to be picked up after the class, check for it outside behind our building in a box for one week after class).  Water offers different projects from Air.

The camp is fantastic for kids for so many reasons. Developmentally, working in clay assists hand-eye coordination. Give a kid a lump of clay and their brain synchs up to allow inspiration to flourish. Our projects, a mix of instruction on the potter’s wheel and hand building, are designed with fun and learning in mind. (If by chance there is work still to be picked up after the class, check for it outside behind our building in a box for one week after class) Air offers different projects from Water.


Draw/Paint: Elements

The four essential elements of life-Earth, Air, Fire and Water-come together as inspirational subjects in this camp. We have had such a great response that we decided to offer it almost every week! Sign up–we designed it to be both instructional and a camp all kids will adore. It’s like The Art Class but in a camp full of experimentation and FUN.


Draw/Paint: Reality

Are you always drawn to picking up a pencil? Hey! Don’t brush off your painting skills. Draw from still life (bur really COOL still life), costumed models and often a special animal guest while learning important stuff like proportion, perspective, composition and hatching/cross hatching to achieve value. Have fun and gain skills quickly through our well-proven methods. New projects each year.


Draw/Paint: Fantasy

Why do we return again and again to this camp? Because it’s magic. Our famous Fairy/Mermaid and Dragon/owl camps all rolled up in one fabulous experience. Create amazing worlds through drawing and painting and a little bit of sculpture that your favorite fantasy friends will feel right at home in. This camp really works out your imagination muscles. New projects each year.


Spirit Animal Camp

Spirit Animal Camp – Learn what symbols and superpowers are attributed to your favorite animals! Our multi media projects will allow you to investigate in depth the animals that are important to you, be they four legged or winged, horse or hedgehog. If a hawk flew over head this morning, or an owl woke you up singing in the night, find out what gifts they bring you today.
