Back again for the 5th year this exciting nature inspired art camp is for youth ages 7+ who love to make art. Natural pigments, sun prints, spirographs, swing drawing, group painting, ink play, string drawing, touch painting, gelli prints and creative nature connection art are some of the highlights.

With two fine art studios and a good sized outdoor area for nature connection and exploration, young artists are introduced to fresh art projects  each day. While being loads of fun,  art skills and techniques are also finely tuned. Personalized projects, lots of 1:1 instructional time, and access to tons of materials, all strengthen unique creative expression. The focus will be on developing drawing & painting confidence, creative resilience and passion for artful expression.

Art happens in the garden, forest and studio at 600 Fulford-Ganges Rd.
