ART THROUGH THE AGES

Let’s take a trip around the world and through time, exploring art as we go. Stop in Australia and discover aboriginal art. Create your own ancient Greek vase, explore the calligraphy and printmaking of Japan, the landscapes of France and Italy. Art and culture – around the world!

CREATIVE WRITING

Whether you are looking to write the next great novel or just an exciting short story, this camp will help you get your creative juices flowing. Bring your writing home to share with your family.

LET’S PAINT

Go beyond the expected! Discover finger-painting, sponge dipping and other exciting possibilities.

RIP THE RUNWAY

Young fashion gurus will create fashions and awesome apparel in this creative camp.  Campers will learn the basics of clothing construction, from creative inspiration to practical considerations.  This camp will culminate with a fashion show featuring creations by our very own style icons.

SMART ART

It’s art with a twist. Art + Science = Cool Craziness! When you mix up art and science, you’ll create all kinds of interesting, cool designs. Experiment with different, colorful substances that produce reactions. Find out what candy chromatography is; put your noodle to work in a nifty chemistry workshop. Show off your pieces at the end of the summer in our Y Art Show!

STITCHING THE DAY AWAY
