Thanksgiving Break Art Camp
Grades 1st – 6th  •  9:00 am – 4:30 pm
Cost: $150 /child



The week of Thanksgiving there is NO SCHOOL in Geneseo!

Smith Studio and Gallery is offering a creative opportunity for your child to be out of the house on Monday and Tuesday. Because our art camp span 2-days, we can offer more in-depth art projects that are started on the first day and completed on the second day.

Participants bring a lunch and enjoy 2-days of challenging, unusual and exciting art projects, both inside and outside as weather permits. We supply a morning and afternoon pre-packaged snack. We have extended hours for those who need it, at no additional cost. Maximum, 8 children

Monday, November 20 – During this two-day art camp we will direct our artistic energies towards building a “Respect Mother Nature” sculpture. Our masterful creations will be built from foam core, and painted. Our sculpture’s relationship to nature will become apparent as they develop and become more complex. Then a story will grow from our artwork that will honor Mother Nature.

Tuesday November 20 – We will continue to develop our “Mother Nature” sculptures. This includes developing a written story of “Respect Mother Nature” from our art endeavors. A special “Turkey Puppet” is also planned as we look at the detail that can be added to an art piece as it is brought to a conclusion. Games and 2-dimensional art will also be a part of our two-days of exciting creativity.

A morning and afternoon snack is provided. A short movie about a major artist is shown after lunch. There are additional 2-D and 3-D art projects besides the major project.


Sign up for a fun two days of original art activities and friendship!
