A TYPICAL DAY:

Children participate in four one-hour workshops a day led by an artist(s) with expertise in the particular discipline. Workshops for older children are more intensive and provide an opportunity for more sophisticated exploration and execution.

On September 1, the last day of camp, family and friends are invited to visit to see the work and creative exploration accomplished.

Participation in the full three week program is encouraged.
