Summer Camps

Cartoons & Clay

Ages: 5½-8 & 8-12

Cartoons & Clay is a favorite among our campers. Students will learn about cartooning and animation, from basic drawing techniques to expression, movement, and action. We'll be drawing everything from the classic characters in comics to the animated heroes of current films. Learn to draw favorite characters from Madagascar and other popular animated movies.

During the first hour of camp each day we will dive into a drawing or painting project inspired by the camp theme. The 5½ to 8 year old camps are geared for younger artists and include stories and crafts. The 9 to 12 year old camps are for older artists to explore more advanced drawing and painting techniques. Class size is limited to 12 to provide the creative space and individual instruction for each artist.

When it's time for a short break, we walk one block to the park for some fresh air and a snack. Please send a small snack and drink with your child each day.

On the last day of camp we have an art reception to celebrate both the creations and the friendships we've made. The art reception begins promptly at the end of camp on Thursday. Parents, please plan to attend.


“I appreciate the friendly atmosphere. My children both feel supported for their unique skills and styles. Thanks for the tea, too.”
