Experience the world of ARTopia, where your child’s imagination can soar. In this fun studio art class, campers ages 6-9 will conceptualize, design, and create art projects in such mediums as painting, sculpting, papier-mâché and drawing. Whatever medium they are working in, they will be guided through proper use of tools and techniques that will help build their knowledge and expertise of that art form. At the end of the week, campers will participate in a mini-reception with their instructor and afterward bring their artwork home to share with friends and family.
