camps

All doodlers ages 5 -14 are invited to express their imagination this summer! 

Our Summer Camps run from June - August. 

Brand new to our Summer 2021 schedule are sessions that run 9am - 4pm or 10am -2pm. 

Lesson plans are rooted in art history and designed and implemented by teachers with Masters Degrees in Education and higher. 

Though camp themes may be repeated from year to year or throughout the summer - lesson plans and projects are brand new!
