Tutoring, educational camp, & art

We have completed our plans for our series of Summer Day Art Camps for 2017. The week long day camps will be held the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th weeks in June and July. Cost for each camp will be $25.00 per day or $100.00 for the entire week. Students may sign up for 1, 2, 3, 4, or all 5 days of any camp. Costs include all supplies and materials needed. You can save 10% off the weekly rate by signing up for multiple weeks. You can now view the theme and featured artist for each camp on each camp's event page. Day Camps are 10:00 am to 12:00 pm daily.
Listed here is the theme and artist inspiration for each camp. 
June 12 - 16  Bugs and Botanicals
Inspired by artist M. C. Escher our Bugs and Botanicals art camp will kick off our Summer Art Camp series. Campers will learn about Escher and make beautiful, graphic tesselations inspired by him. 
June 19 - 23   Freedom
Freedom is the theme of this art camp inspired by artist Jasper Johns. This artist used flags, numbers, and even targets in his art. We will make colorful art with these elements as well. 
June 26 - 30   Me, Myself, and I
Artist Frida Kahlo will provide the inspiration for our Me, Myself, and I art camp. This Mexican artist painted her self portrait some 55 times. We are going to use various mediums to create images of ourselves. 
July 10 - 14   Nature
Our Nature themed art camp will feature Andy Goldsworthy. He collaborates with Nature to create his unique art. He often lets his art remain in nature so it changes and ultimately disappears. Artists at this camp will use elements from Nature to discover, create, and let go.
July 17 - 21   Circus
This year our Circus art camp will feature the work of Alexander Calder. He believed art should move and be viewed from all angels. We will use his inspiration to create mobiles and playful Circus characters. 
July 24 - 28  Superheroes
Superheroes is always a very popular art camp for us. This year's camp will feature artists Stan Lee and Roy Lichtenstein. These two artists used their talent to create some of America's most beloved Superheroes. We will create our own comic strip and use words in an onomatopoeia offering of our own.
