Explore art online!
Take a virtual summer camp session and experience a whole new world of creativity without leaving your house.
We are still offering hands-on activities, art supplies and interactive games - it just happens to be virtually. Just because you're at home, doesn't mean you can't experience interactive learning!
We are optimizing our online class room to ensure your child receives that best quality instruction possible. We will be featuring a two-screen view for distance viewing and detailed demos, step-by-step feedback and plenty of opportunities for engagement with other classmates and the instructor. Our online curriculum is run by an instructor with online teaching experience. We have interactive games and activities planned that promote direct engagement rather than passive learning.
While each weekly theme has remained, some curriculum changes have been made to make the activities relevant to our current times and online setting. We realize that young artists have a lot to say right now. We have adjusted each camp to include specific activities that connect our current environment to the creative process.
