Spring Break Art Camp Grades 1 – 6

March 20 – 21, 2023
Spring Break Art Camp
Grades 1st – 6th  •  9:00 am – 4:30 pm
Cost: $150 /child


A DELIGHTFULLY FUN two days of original art activities, fun and friendship. 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 . . . The first day is about painting. A “fresco” is watercolor painted on freshly applied plaster. Our participants will help in making their own plaster base in the morning, and then paint a creative watercolor before the plaster completely sets up. The afternoon will follow with a special painting on canvas. This distinct image will emphasis action and movement as it will be expanded on the second day of Art Camp. The day will include other art activities, a short movie about an important artist, new 2-D drawing techniques and educational art games.

Tuesday . . . The second day of Art Camp our participants will be using the media of plaster to carve a bas-relief sculpture. This unusual technique will be a learning experience for all of our participants as we will model our artwork to have the appearance of an ancient artifact. Also, our young artists will be challenged to enhance their “action” painting of the previous day as a painted frame is added to their previous image. The day will include additional 2-D painting projects, a short movie about an important artist, and MUCH MORE!
