By our Smarty friends at small hands big art
small hands big art offers enriching and fun half day summer camp programs that will educate, inspire and entertain your creative young artists! And best of all – our summer camps don’t require four applications of sunscreen! During the mixed media art camps, children age 4 – 14 explore painting, drawing, 3D sculpture, collage, assemblages, printmaking & more! Students are segregated into different age groups to work on age-appropriate projects, or may work on the same open-ended project with modifications for their age. We also have several sessions carved out exclusively for Teens ages 12-15 (see schedule below). Weekly summer art camps are the perfect opportunity to dive into lengthier projects like papier mache, batik painting, assemblage sculpture or clay. For die-hard campers who return year after year (or week after week), they catalog all projects each student has completed & make every effort to avoid repeating projects! Watch our Mixed Media Summer Camp Video!
