        Our summer camps, running through August, offer a variety of
 artistic experiences in drawing, painting, paper mache, printmaking,
 collage, puppets, cartooning, mural, fused glass, and clay.
Camps are
 grouped by age, with offerings for ages 5-8, 7-12, and 11+.

        Camps are taught by professional artists/art teachers in a cool
 indoor studio with a lawn area for outdoor activities.
     Each one week camp has its own theme and offers a unique experience.
     Fees include art materials and peanut-free snacks.
     Enrollment in each camp is limited to 12 students,  so early registration
            is recommended.
     


                    This year, online registration and payment are available through PayPal.
             Each camp has its own PayPal entry, below. If you prefer you may
