This summer we are trying a new concept for our summer camps.  We will offer day camps 1 per week for two age groups, every week of the summer (except the weeks of June 21 & 28).  Our day camps ignite imaginations, celebrate creativity, and produce new and exciting experiences every week!  We will paint & color, create stories, tie-dye shirts, construct fabulous creatures, play games, and more!


Class fees includes all supplies.  Little Artists should bring a snack & drink, Arts Explorers should bring a lunch and drink.  Drop-ins are acceptable, but advance reservations are preferable due to supply preparations.
