During the summer we have Mixed Media camps at our main Ballantyne studio as well as morning camps in Dilworth at the Covenant Rec Center.   For the Dilworth camp, see our main camp page for all the details, or click on the calendar link for that location.


Variety is the spice of life, so our summer camps are organized like our regular mixed media class sessions! We won’t be spending a week “under the sea”, but we will inspire kids’ creativity by exposing them to a fun mix of age appropriate projects with varying art mediums, styles, ideas & techniques. Through hands-on exploration, children will learn the basic elements of art such as shape, line, color, texture, form, space & value, as well as pattern & rhythm. Children also learn about famous artists & artistic movements throughout history. At the heart of everything we do, each child’s unique creative “vision” & self-expression is valued and nurtured.

Children will have plenty of time to explore painting, drawing, 3D sculpture, upcycled art, collage, assemblages & printmaking. We’ll also work on lengthier projects such as papier mache. The kids have ample opportunity to work independently as well as to collaborate on fun group projects!  We catalog all projects our students have completed & make every effort to avoid repeat projects for our die-hard campers who come to multiple weeks of camp or return year after year!


All camps with the exceptions weeks noted just for teens are for mixed ages 4 – 14.  Children are segregated into age groups to work on age-appropriate projects.  For example, everyone might be working on a chalk pastel project but the project will be modified for older children ages 9 – 14 and younger kids ages 4 – 6.   We strive for a very low teacher to student ratio so that everyone is able to work at their own level with plenty of help (where needed).
