Glimpses into the re-imagined studios of some of the world’s most famous artists such as Vermeer, Corot, Picasso, and Pollock will inspire campers to produce their own artwork.
Give your child a FUN, CREATIVE and OPEN atmosphere to develop their love and appreciation for the arts today!
Max capacity for classes is 15 or 20 students.
All classes are taught by Certified Art Teachers and/or Art Professionals who undergo a background check as required in the Jessica Lunsford Act.
