Summer 2021 Creativity Camp

About Creativity Camp

Each day, our Creativity Camps are packed with fun and challenging activities that balance learning and play. Campers may experiment with a variety of mediums such as graphite, paint, pastels, charcoal, watercolor, sculptural materials, and more.   Although we provide a lot of traditional art instruction, we also encourage campers to take what they’ve learned and apply it to outside-the-box projects.

Please note that creativity camp sessions do not use clay that is fired in a kiln and they do not throw on the pottery wheel.


Creativity Camp is for children ages 5-12 years old.

Children are divided into the following groups: Ages 5-7, Ages 8-9, Ages 10-12.

Please note: we do not make exceptions to the minimum age required to be in a given group.


Creativity Camp Tuition: $405/week
