About the event

Ages 8-15 (recommended)  You know your little artist/s so please exercise your own judgement on which session/s to attend and if they would be enthusiastic to spend each day making art.    

 Description: You know the great thing about kids? They aren't afraid to let their creativity shine! In fact, they welcome the opportunity to delve into sculpting, take a crack at acrylics, and develop a keen eye for color, composition, and design all while creating beautiful pieces of art.Nurturing a child's natural artistic inclination does more than fill the front of your fridge with one-of-a-kind masterpieces. It also builds self-esteem as young ones learn to analyze and problem-solve. When kids are given the chance to try out their own ideas, and then make changes based on what they want the result to be, they develop confidence. Confidence that bleeds into their social, academic, athletic, and artistic pursuits.In this four-day camp, your budding artist will paint with acrylics, draw, sculpt, and create mixed media projects. Guided by Ashley Ellis, an educator artist.   Each camper creates a portfolio worthy of display in your own living room art show. Parents and campers alike agree that this unique program is an ideal blend of fine arts education and creative fun. Geared towards youth searching their niche in the art scene, this camp event has something for everyone, from beginner to advanced.   

What to bring: Becoming the next Leonardo DiVinci is hard work! Please help your camper stay fed and hydrated by sending along a snack, lunch if they are participating in BOTH Sessions, and water bottle. Each camper will also need a 9" x 12" sketchbook. Sketchbooks are available for purchase at checkout for $10.  Please avoid packing nuts of all kinds and in all forms to keep our campers with allergies safe.

Need more info: Contact Ashley at  if you have any questions.  We are happy to share information, tips, and just say Hello!
