We limit each summer camp session to 12-15 students so that each student receives individual attention. Making art develops problem-solving skills, encourages creativity, and develops self-confidence. Our goal is to provide the materials, structure, and guidance to spark creativity in each child, allow them to explore and investigate their own ideas, and have lots of fun in the process. Our philosophy is to encourage students to explore and express themselves with an emphasis on practice over product, without judgment, comparison, or criticism.

Each camp day has plenty of structure and practice, and we have lots of fun in the process. I love to work with each student, one-on-one, to see what their unique interests are! We demonstrate a variety of methods and ways of making art to nurture artistic development. We also provide lessons on color theory and famous artists in art history, go on field trips, and host special guests to spark the creative process. We wholeheartedly encourage individual exploration of personal themes and interests. And we value working together and sharing ideas. Collaboration, cooperation and community are important!

All art materials are safe and non-toxic. Ages 6-13, regular campers, and 14-17, counselors in training. Please register at www.DancingPaintbrushStudio.com

We look forward to having you with us!
