Summer Camp 2018 will be held for 9 weeks starting the week of June 11 and ending the week of August 6th.Sign up for a week at a time (or multiple weeks!) for either the morning session or all day session.
Each week we'll focus on a fun theme and will create art projects in that theme using multiple media including paint, colored pencils, clay, duct tape, chalk, recyclable materials and more! Our typical day will consist of creating a unique art piece as well as spending some time outdoors in the North Branch Arts Community Garden (across from the Edgebrook Metra Station) or a nearby playground to collect supplies for a project, learn how nature and art work together, or just blow off some steam!
Open to all kids ages 6 to 12!
Cost for Summer Camp: 9:00-12:00 - $130 per week ($115 for members) OR 9:00-3:00 - $270 per week ($220 for members) Multiple week discounts available. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
