ONLINE SUMMER CAMP

In light of the difficult health situation in Montreal caused by Covid-19, our summer camp will take place online. Enter the world of online art learning with us and experience a new and safe adventure! We offer half-day activities and one-day workshops for youth aged 4 to 17. We look forward to creating with you!

Join us this summer for a new 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.

Activities take place on Zoom with one of our instructors. Our small classes are grouped according to age, and ensure that each child receives individual attention and is encouraged to advance at their own pace.

Online Half-Day Activities – ages 4 to 12

The Sunny Workshop Online (4-5 years)

Start the week off on the right foot and bring sunshine into your home with creative projects that are simple and bold. In this dynamic class, fantasy, experimentation, fun, and the joy of being creative come together. Students are introduced to a variety of techniques such as painting, collage, drawing, and mixed media. This workshop helps to stimulate curiosity and imagination, and encourages children to express themselves while learning basic two- and three-dimensional art techniques. Moments of relaxation, storytelling and short yoga sessions are interspersed throughout the workshop to keep the little ones attentive.
