Summer Sign Up Has Started

PM Cupcake Tommy Willows camp

It seems like this winter has just flown by!  Despite the fact that there is still snow on the ground we are already thinking summer.  Summer Camp sign up has begun.  We offer two programs.  One program goes to the Salem Willows and the kids get to do on site landscape painting, with some time at the end of camp in arcade of course.   We also do a In studio camp that is station based.  Students can oil paint, make anything they desire with paper mache, build things out of duck tape, and much more.  In this camp students are encouraged to come with and Idea for a project and through conversations with students and teachers expand on that idea to create a fantastic project.

To read more about our camps and view the weeks they run visit our SUMMER CAMPS PAGE.  The sooner you sign up the better chance you have to get the week that works best for you.
