Kids Day Classes

Art adventures offers 4 day camps for children from ages 4-10 running from 11-3 Mon-Thurs. This can be thought of like childhood educational programming, day care, or a place for home schoolers to get their art education and be in a learning environment. There are sign-up options for multiple weeks or months and children will enjoy a new theme each week, I encourage signing up for longer periods of time.

There are a variety of camps happening every week with all kinds of amazingly fun themes like Unicorns and Dragons, Bugs n Butterflies, etc. We use a variety of mediums in every weekly camp including watercolour, acrylic, drawing, sculpy, needle felting (older kids), laser cut wood, Polymer clay jewelry making, magic wands making, and more!

 

Hula Hooping, movement, walks in nature, songs, games and storytelling activities are incorporated into the programming to break things up, connect with the group, and have some fun!

 In this magical adventure kids camp we are off to discover the hidden dragon egg that has been ready to hatch for eons. We must make it there before the T-rex crushes it and destroys the baby. We come equipped with the heightened hearing of the fairies and their magical senses to locate these creatures without having to crack an eggshell and disturb the sleeping baby. Together the dragons and fairies keep this new baby dragon species safe and sound!
Children will do drawing of the secret dragon species, designing never before seen race of winged reptilian creatures. Children will complete a large watercolour and acrylic painting with mixed media that will be a piece of final art to take home and hang on their wall. We will also work with making magic wands out of wood and feathers and sculpt some dragon eggs out of sculpy.

We are off on a great adventure to discover where the end of the rainbow meets the water! We know there must be treasure there and on our way we will meet the butterfly dolphin clan who’s wings were wrapped in the colour of the rainbow and coloured forever! They have so much to teach us about the open waters and what magical creatures are our friends, so we spend all our days with them getting to know the open seas and all of the magical delights within.

Children will produce a beautiful watercolour and acrylic painting that they will sketch out first while learning some basic drawing skills that will help them in their overall design. They will be making special magical wands that are used for blessing the bodies of water while harnessing the energy of the rainbow through their butterfly wings.

We will freeze him in space and time and together he can shine with the starry starry night sky.

In this camp the kids will produce an acrylic painting of robotron on the starry starry night.
