Summer Art Intensives for Children & Teens

All Around the Studio with Ms. Yana

Does your child adore Art? Do you find them drawing, painting, designing, and making their own masterpieces and begging for more supplies to use? This four-morning Summer Art Intensive is especially for them! They’ll join Studio Owner & Art Teacher Yana Farmer in a tour All Around the Studio, creating Clay Art, making mini Mosaics, Painting with Acrylics, and much more, all while developing new skills, gaining knowledge, and honing their technique.

 

Students will focus their efforts exclusively and intensively on Learning, Creating, and Celebrating Art, with one or two short breaks during the morning, during which a snack and water will be available. Students should bring a packed lunch (no nuts, please) to eat near the end of each day.

 

Registration is for the entire camp only, please, not for individual days.

All About That Clay with Ms. Yana

Can your child ever get enough time to play with Clay? Send them to the Studio for this four-morning Art Intensive where they will work entirely on Clay Art of all kinds with Studio Owner & Art Teacher Yana Farmer.

 

If you’ve ever worked with natural clay, you know that it needs to dry thoroughly and be fired into bisque in the kiln before it can go home. Please make sure your student knows that their Clay Art pieces will remain at the Studio at the end of the Intensive. We will schedule a pick up day for you after the pieces are fired. During the intensive, students will also create something from air dry clay that they will paint with acrylics and be able to take home right away.

 

Details will be provided during the Intensive about a Studio Glazing Day later on for students who want their pieces to be finished off with a colorful shine.

 

Students will focus their efforts exclusively and intensively on Learning, Creating, and Celebrating Art, with one or two short breaks during the morning, during which a snack and water will be available. Students should bring a packed lunch (no nuts, please) to eat near the end of each day.
