It’s hard to believe its that time of year again!! This year as we sat down to prepare for Summer Camp we were thoughtful on how we could best support our new and returning Campers and Parents/Caregivers while still providing a fun and creative Camp experience- so we reached out to people directly!
Most of the feedback we received from kids and parents is everyone is tired of Zoom, Schedules & Screen Time! In response to that and our current situation with regards to managing COVID-19 studio restrictions we have restructured our normal Summer Camp.
We are so excited to offer new this summer At Home- Art Camp To Go Packs for those campers that are looking for an at home/beach house camp like experience. We are also Super Duper excited to be able to re-open our studio in East Williston in mid- July (Phase 4 reopening) for In Studio- Summer Art Camp!

Pirates, Cats, Princess, etc) and contains 4 art projects (1 pottery, 1 mosaic or wood, 1 canvas and 1 art lesson along with a Book related to that kits theme and easy step by step instructions for kids to independently work on at their own pace and time.
