All camps are Monday-Friday
from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

FYI camps offer a WILD collaboration of Creativity, Music, and Art History. We fuse clay, painting, printmaking, digital photography, music, art history, trends, and more as we create funky and fabulous projects! Students explore a variety of genres and the art that made those movements crazy and colorful. We learn about artists and discover their inspirations. This summer we will focus on "Countries" and how the art and music energize it all. 

Camps are taught with two teachers and a max of 16 students. Camps fill quickly and are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Payment is due at the time of enrollment.
