It has been a great summer working with local children in the area at my summer art camps! Kids ages 7-12 have been trying out their hands in painting, mixed media, and paper mache.
This was the first time I ever ventured into classes that were more lengthy like these four hour ones. With a packed lunch to break it up in the middle, it was a great amount of time for the kids to try something new and finish a beautiful piece of art that they could take home and hang on their walls!
I put my own children to work as my "staff" and they were a great help to me as I needed many hands to help.
The kids really enjoyed themselves and I had many repeat students this summer. Also, parents were thrilled to pay $40 to have a break while their kids were having fun and making colorful artwork to bring home. It was a win, win situation for all! I will definitely be hosting more of these summer art camps next year! Please contact me if you are interested in your child/children being a part of these art camps. I will be hosting more camps throughout the 2014-15 school year. More to come on that...
