WHEN SCHOOL IS OUT, ART IS IN!

SUMMER CAMP

The Summer Scoop

 

The Art Nook offers Mixed Media week-long morning and afternoon drop off classes for ages 3 ½ -16

Summer camp topics will vary each week and most camps are Mixed Media including painting, drawing, sculpture, collage, clay, and experimental process based work.

 

Mixed Media camps are filled with variety to spark creativity and expose students to a stimulating mix of age-appropriate art techniques each day.

Let's Have Class Outside!

 

When the weather is nice, and the projects allow for it, we may have class outside in my backyard or on the shaded deck.

 

One class per week will consist of drawing and painting outside in Goffle Brook Park (private entrance to secluded area of park from backyard)​.

  • Space is limited. 8 or 10 kids maximum per session.

How long are camps?

Most afternoon camps are 1:00-3:00pm

Interested in a longer camp?

A few 3 hour camp sessions (9:30am-12:30pm) are offered throughout the summer. These sessions include a snack and outdoor play break, as well as lunch at the end of the session in Goffle Brook Park. Please provide a snack, water, and packed lunch for your child for this longer session.

 

While most weeks are Mixed Media camps, there are a few specialty sessions throughout the summer listed below: 

Special Session: Process Art (ages 3½-5)

This 1.5 hour drop off class is all about the process of making! Young artists will engage in a plethora of terrific materials: clay, glue, beads, buttons, fabric.  We'll explore printing, painting, sculpting, cutting and gluing. Through these open-ended explorations, children will find joy in the artistic process and learn that their physical actions have visual consequences. Yes, your child will get messy!!

Special Session: Draw & Paint

Students will use pencil, charcoal, pastels, watercolor, tempera, and ink as they advance their drawing and painting skills. This is a great class for more "serious" art lovers! Students will explore color theory, composition, light, texture, perspective, and depth through a variety of engaging projects. In addition to drawing from life, we will also draw from our minds and think creatively.

Special Session: All Clay Week

Let's get messy! We will be using clay to explore 3D forms and texture. Students will gain skills in the three main hand-building techniques: pinch, coil, and slab through a variety of engaging projects.
