Fabulous Fibers

Our clothing is made of spun, knitted or sewn fibers. Let's take a whirlwind tour of the wide world of fiber! We will discover where and how our clothing materials are made, all the while weaving and sewing different materials, making textile prints, yarn paintings, and even adding fiber texture to a ceramic creation. **Early Drop-Off and Late Pick-Up are available to extend the day from 8:30AM to 4:30PM. $35/week for either morning or afternoon, $65/week for both.

Camps for 6 and 7 Year Olds

Camps for 6 and 7 year olds introduce projects, methods, and themes while taking advantage of increased fine-motor skills. We celebrate more intentional marks and the ability to write while encouraging lively imaginations! Collaborations, multi-step projects, and lots of outdoor experiences are highlights of the week.

What does the week look like?
Campers create individually and collaboratively with the guidance of a lead faculty artist and assistant. We incorporate stories and playtime throughout the day.

9:30am-12 noon: We start the day with a morning meeting and then get busy with hands-on exploration for our morning art session.
Mid-morning: Snack break
12:00-1:00pm: Lunch and outdoor play
1:00-3:15pm: Afternoon art session (on Tuesdays, a visiting artist guides a clay-based activity)
3:30: Regular pick-up

The week concludes with an art show, when campers get to share their experiences and creations with family and friends
