Summer Morning Camp 2015

Summer Morning Camp 2015
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, all while having lots of fun.  Sign ups are per week and your child may attend as many or few weeks as you like (as long as they are not full).  If you are interested, 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!  There must be at least 4 children enrolled for a class to run.
