Come join us for art around the world summer camp! This camp experience will allow students to travel around the world to learn about art and culture. We will learn about art forms from many different places including Egypt, Japan, China, Australia, and North/South America! Allow your child to discover or nurture their inner artist through exploring cultural art experiences and a variety of art materials. Students will walk away from this experience with a collection of guided and self-directed projects. We will use a variety of art techniques including painting, drawing, clay building, crafting and illustration. All art materials are included with the camp.
