summer camps AT FYI
Summer 2022 was a blast!
All camps are Monday-Friday
from 9:00 am-1:00 pm
FYI camps offer a wild collaboration of Art, Music, and World Culture. We fuse cooking, music, and language into the weeks as we create fantastic works of art! Students explore the “POP” genre and the artists that made it crazy and colorful. We learn about Picasso and his love of African masks. Students soar into the far-out world of outer space and explore the magic of nature! Fabulous young artists will discover and capture inspiration from the Greats.
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.
