Summer Morning Camp 2014

Due to popular demand, I will be hosting 5 weeks of mini art classes this summer.

Summer Morning Camp
from 9:30AM to 12 Noon Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays
COST: $175 Per week includes all materials.

During the summer morning camp we will focus on a single area of art and create artwork portraying what we have learned.  These classes are for children ages 6-10 (possibly 11&12) who are serious about their artwork and would like to spend their mornings creating in an intimate studio setting with friends.  We will be learning techniques and skills in each area that they will be able to use beyond the class.  We will also have a lot of fun.  Sign ups are per week and you may sign your child up for as many or few weeks as you like.  If you would like to sign up your child, please email me and I will send you a sign up form (theredbowstudio at gmail).  There is a $50 deposit per student to reserve a space per class.  If you have any questions, please call or email me!  For a class to run there must be at least 4 children enrolled.
