Week-long camps will be offered May 27th- August 9th, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

This summer we are expanding and will offer camps for age 6-16!

 Creatisphere Summer Art Camp for ages 6-12 is the ultimate art experience! This dynamic program includes hands-on classes in pottery, drawing, sculpture, photography, glass blowing, 3-d design, mixed media, painting, printmaking, kiln forming, drawing, textiles and more! Creatisphere takes art “out of the box,” allowing participants to explore and experiment with unique art forms that encourage creative development, critical thinking skills and innovation.

Early drop-off 8 a.m., and extended care 5 p.m., is available. It is $5 per use, or $30 for the full week.

Each week campers work in the Ceramics and Glass Studios creating a truly unique art experience. In addition to using a variety of studios on the FCAC campus, campers will visit the 1060 Art Gallery where they can see artists working in their studios. Campers will even get to visit the Long Hollow Community Art Park (directly across the street) to see the fountain sculpture created by FCAC artists, walk the labyrinth and visit the playground.

The classroom features choice-based learning centers to encourage participants to direct their creativity independently after finishing projects. If the weather permits, campers can work outside under the shady trees in front of the YAP Classroom – optional, of course! We are adding a construction and building workshop space this year!

In addition to art activities, each day there is a light session of movement, such as Yoga or outdoor games.

To see all the fun things we did in camp in the 2018 Creatisphere, and to see what we have been up to in the Youth Art Program this year, visit the YAP Facebook page.
