Process Art Camp
An Art Camp for children ages 5-7
Process art allows children to engage with materials in an open ended way, with few instructions and no samples or examples of what their work should look like in the end. The experience is often calming, relaxing and the results highlight each child's unique expression and imagination.
Join us for a week of art explorations where the focus is on the process, the materials and each child's individual sense of imagination and creativity. We will use recycled materials, items from nature, fabric, yarn, wire, watercolors, oil pastels, clay, glue and much more.
