Fine Arts Day Camp – ages 6 to 12*

Monday to Friday: 9 am to 4:15 pm

Join us this summer for another creative and inspiring artistic journey! Delve into a wide range of art materials; learn new skills and experiment with different creative approaches. Each week we will explore new themes.

Our small, bilingual classes of 15 students, grouped according to age, ensure that each child receives individual attention and is encouraged to advance at their own pace. Activities take place in our fully equipped and air conditioned studios as well as at Westmount Park, where outdoor games and a weekly swim complement the afternoon programme.

*Registered children must be at least 6 years old the date they attend camp. The day camp schedule and projects are not suitable for younger children.

Registration for the 2019 Summer Camp begins February 15th.

Daily Activities

8 am to 9 pm – Early Drop-Off

Free. No registration required.

9 am to 12 noon – Morning Workshop

Sculpture, drawing, painting, and ceramics are the focus of the morning art activities, giving children an opportunity to imaginatively and expressively explore these media while simultaneously developing skills.

12 noon to 12:30 pm – Lunch

Campers enjoy lunch together from 12-12:30 pm in our studio spaces. Groups are paired by age and are encouraged to interact with one another.
Opportunities for new friendships are fostered in a warm and creative environment. Children should bring cold lunches, as there is no access to microwaves or kitchens.

12:30 to 4:00 pm – Afternoon Activities

The afternoon session offers a fun and exciting workshop atmosphere in which to explore a specific art form that changes each week, such as collage, print-making, book arts, sculpture, and digital media. Experimentation, creativity, and self-expression are encouraged, as well as skill development and an understanding of basic artistic concepts. Part of the afternoon will include physical activities (i.e. games at the park; weekly yoga; and a weekly swim, weather permitting).

4:00 to 4:15 – Pickup

Parents can pick their children up in Studio E on the ground floor (Somerville Entrance).

4:15 to 6 pm – Extended Hours

Activities include: creating bracelets, drawing, beading, and other quiet games. In order to provide adequate staffing, registration for extended hours  must be paid in advance and by the week only. $30 per week (whether for 1 day or 5). Reserve early; limited spots available. Parents who have signed up for extended hours and arrive after 6 pm will be charged the following fees: $5 for 15 min. until 6:15 pm; $1 per minute after 6:15 pm.
