Landscapes, leaves, sun-prints, and critters – Students in this camp will create unique works of art inspired by scenes from nature, as well as using objects from nature. Students will use acrylic and watercolor paint, colored pencils, air-dry clay, found objects, and more.
Need a full day program? Students may combine the afternoon Art and Nature camp with the morning Sculpture I camp, and Lunch Option 4.
Students provide their own peanut free lunch for full day and snacks for half-day programs. Families and friends are welcome to come 15 minutes before the end of camp on Friday to enjoy an exhibition of student work in the Education Gallery and classrooms.
Individualized attention, inspired and supportive instruction, small classes, meaningful gallery tours, and award-winning teachers are hallmarks of our exceptional arts programs. Through exposure to a variety of art forms and materials, all courses encourage the development of new skills and build confidence in creative expression. In addition, our summer camps provide opportunities for lively social interaction and outdoor activities. Student work is exhibited in the Education Gallery throughout the summer.
Faculty member Maria Wible has a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Bachelor of Arts in Art History from Penn State University, and is working toward her Master’s Degree in Art Education from University of the Arts in Philadelphia. One parent noted, “We found the quality of instruction in Maria’s class to be exceptional. My daughter loved the pace of the class, the specificity of instruction, and the joyful classroom atmosphere.”
