We provide all the supplies needed to complete each project.
We also provide drinks and light, healthy snacks (special diet snacks can be brought from home to serve in place if desired).
We break about halfway thru to stretch and enjoy a snack. 
Each day your child will leave camp with a truly unique, handmade creation. 
We'll explore creative and fun selections of art mediums and surfaces. We specialize in DIY, upcycling and getting creative with everyday findings. I'll share a variety of visual examples of each art style or project to inspire and ignite your child's imagination...then I'll guide them as they put their imaginations and personal interpretation to paper, paint, wood and more! 
Each day features a different theme. We'll craft a core project for the day and include fun little extras that incorporate our theme each day. 

Project/Camp Costs: 
Ala carte- $40 (per day)
Complete Camp Package- $175 (all 5 days)

Pop on over to our
page to reserve tickets. 

a bit about AGES:
Our suggested age range is 6-7 and up.
Parents discretion is crucial here...only you know if your 
child is capable of staying engaged for a 2-3 hour workshop.
I've hosted amazing and inquisitive 6 year olds, 
and at the other end of the scale, 13-14 year olds that just couldn't stay focused...
for every one's enjoyment and positive experience, 
please use your best judgement in deciding if DIY/ART camp is a right for your child. 

Dates: July 25th thru July 29th
Time: 1:00 to 4:30
Please feel free to drop by the shop,
