Summer time is simply the best time to slow down and create original art with us in our fully-equipped and extra fabulous 1914 art house. Large rooms, wrap around porch and several garden areas means open space and lots of social distancing. Each week our camp artists can look forward to a daily visiting artist, a trip into the pottery studio for wheel work, a walking field trip to our local downtown for ice cream, plus about a dozen other interesting projects we weave into the week's themed camp. Join us for just one or all six weeks of fun! Each camp led by 2 educators, a couple of helpers and daily visiting artists. More fun than a barrel of monkeys!
