SUMMER ART CAMP 2018

june 4 - august 15 (no camp july 4th)

dream. play. make. explore. discover. 

When we think of summer we think of long, blissful days to dream, play, be care-free, explore, discover, and soak in the unstructured time away from school.  Families these days are BUSY!  Kids need a break from routine to let their imaginations run free and make their own rules in a safe and supportive environment.  At artSPARK we like to break free from giving endless directions to follow and instead support our young artists as they think outside the box. We offer drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, and fiber arts as well as other materials and processes when we see the right opportunity.

what will your child make and do each day?  are there themes each week?  

We do not have set themes, but themes do emerge as the kids get in the flow of creating.  We follow the artistic interests of the kids, planning and preparing right along with the latest trend started in the studio.   We let them discover what lights their "spark" and then fuel the fire.  We do cooperative and collaborative activities to encourage kids to broaden their perspective and interact with others.  Your child will make something meaningful to them and age appropriate based on their skill level. 

we are all about INNOVATION  & CREATIVE PLAY

We like to set up invitations to create with open-ended outcomes, allowing kids the creative power to own their ideas and work through the artistic process with guidance rather than following a "recipe" with an expected outcome.  At summer art camp, kids will problem-solve, use critical thinking skills, collaborate, experiment, invent, and be exposed to new artists, materials, and processes for inspiration.

We operate similarly to a yoga or fitness studio where you purchase a class or package and schedule when it works for you.  

Buying multiple classes or for multiple kids?  Follow these steps for an easier check out: 

1.  CHECK AVAILABILITY BEFORE PURCHASING 

2. PURCHASE all classes/camps you want ($42 per 3 hr camp)

3. SCHEDULE + RSVP

You can designate multiple family members from your account to share the options you buy.  You need to buy a Single Visit Pass for each person you are scheduling OR BUY A PACKAGE to be shared between multiple people.

Purchased options will be saved in your account until you use them, but do have an expiration date.  They may only be used for camps that are not already full.   Be sure to check for availability and RSVP on the dates you want after purchasing.  

Camps are not refundable or eligible for credit, but may be transferred to another Spark Time Camp up to 7 days prior to the camp date.
