Summer Art Camp 2019

  • Summer Camp at Art Sparks provides theme-based creative experiences during which children get to explore a variety of media such as acrylics, collage, watercolors, pastels, charcoal, printmaking, sculpture, photography, colored pencils, clay and much more.
  • Weekly session will be led by art teacher Julie Rosenthale and occasional special guest teaching artists, and assisted by counselors.
  • Campers bring their own snacks and drink. Weather permitting, we spend part of each day outdoors.
  • The summer culminates with an art show as the studio is transformed into a gallery of work produced by the campers throughout the summer…look for date and details of this “meet the artist”  happening during the first week of September.
  • Extended Day Option (for weeks June 24 through August 30 only).  Families have the option of signing up their camper for a couple of extra hours at Art Sparks!  Extended day will include time for lunch (BYO), additional outdoors time, and Art Lab, during which campers will indulge their own imaginative exploration with different art materials, free to experiment and guide their own creative projects.     Extended Day Hours (sign-up for full week only):   12:30 - 3:00 pm

    Building a sketchbook as we go through the week, we will spend time observing, drawing, and applying color with pencils, markers and watercolor.  We will practice line, form, shading, blending and layering colors, and use the ideas that inspired their way into our sketchbooks to create finished works on paper.
