Monday-Thursday Camp

Each week we’ll explore the featured theme through a variety of media - paint, pastels, clay, wood, printmaking, sewing and more. In addition to themed projects, each week will include:

  • Lots of open studio time to play with materials and follow ideas

  • Outdoor play and nature art at a nearby park

  • Drawing prompts and games

  • Story time to explore our theme through books 

Art in the Forest Fridays (drop-in available)

When you register for camp, you’ll have the option to add on Friday to make it a full 5-day week. Fridays are also open for single day drop-ins (half or full day). Join us for a day outside of the studio as we embark on a creative adventure using earthy materials. We’ll spend the day outside at Shevlin Park playing, foraging, collecting and creating. Each Friday will be a unique adventure as we make art to expand upon the theme from the week and do everything from learning to identify plants to yoga. We’ll meet each morning/afternoon and eat lunch at the pavilion. Forest Fridays will be led by Tin Bindi and have a 6:1 camper to adult ratio. Tin has extensive working with children outdoors, is certified as a Wilderness First Responder, has degrees in Ecology and Sustainability and Outdoor Leadership and is a Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher.
