July 23 - July 27: Spark Your Art...In Motion!

SPARK your ART returns this summer with a twist. Get ready to make art… in motion! Campers will once again be encouraged to “think out of the box” and be creative. We will use a wide variety of materials and dabble in several different art techniques. Fluid art, human Spirograph’s, pendulum paintings, melted crayon art, straw and bubble paintings, roller and marble paintings will all be part of our daily adventures. One of our art projects will also include a hammer and cotton balls! No two pieces of artwork will be the same. We will wrap up the week of art making with a community art show. Family and friends will be invited to come participate in an Art Walk featuring our best work. Come join us!
