Our classes/workshops and camps focus on the Fine Arts.
Basic structure of our SummerART in the studio program:
Monday is a day to get to know each other and review techniques, play with materials, and get basic knowledge on what artist/exhibit we will focus on for the week
Tuesday is the introduction to our main project.
Wednesday and Thursday are full of art activities as we work on our pieces.
Friday we finish our projects, and greet family as our participants host a “mini opening” for family members to showcase their masterpieces.
Children spend time outdoors each day, we go for walks, have use of the pool, eat lunch outdoors and otherwise enjoy a fun and educational week …we know your young artists learn and enjoy with us…and we look forward to sharing with them our love for art, nature…life!

Core hours: 9:00am to 3:00pm
Gift hours: 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm is our gift to you as free extended day/social time for the artists! Our camps used to be until 3pm, and families paid extra from 3-6pm for extended day/pool social time. Now, camp is still officially to 3pm- but we have free pool/socialize time from 3-4pm :) we no longer offer extended day. Most children do not get picked up until 4pm as they stay to *hang out* and socialize with new and old friends :)
Tuition includes all materials
Curricula is developed by Claudia Olivos as we observe the group dynamic for each week…
~we take “tailored made” seriously!
Each week will be different, young artists can repeat as often as they like….all summer long!
Summer Art: Schedule announced by January 5th each year.
We hope to see you in the studio soon!!
