More about our Summer Programs:
SINCE 2005, our summer programs have grown to offer wide varieties of artistic camps for all ages. Each summer, favorite camps return with new projects- plus exciting NEW creative themes every year! We are a FULL-SERVICE ARTS STUDIO for KIDS. Parents & Kids alike love our unique, original programs. Our Teachers & Artists specialize in working with children. The spacious studio is designed just for Kids and their creative process:  Imaginative, open spaces to Move, Play, Create-/ smaller tables, chairs, smocks -& even art Supplies- for our littlest friends/ lounge or play-areas with books & toys.  All conveniently located in the heart of Raleigh, across from ROANOKE PARK on Bickett Blvd (in the Five Points Neighborhood). Look for our BRIGHT GREEN building!
 
ART CURRICULUMS vary by Age, Specialty, Medium or Teacher.  Unless otherwise specified, most camps include multiple Art Projects. Your child will love creating & you’ll love to bring the artwork home. As a Multi-Media Art Studio, we stress creative-learning beyond the typical paintbrush or crayon:  Sculpture, Drawing, Charcoal, Inks, Oil Pastel, Acrylic, Watercolor, Textiles, Murals, Up-Cycled Material, Collage, Ceramics, Clay & Pottery (we have a KILN on-site). Students receive relevant instruction on specific mediums, techniques, & process -plus some learning about art-history and  important artists or movements relevant to camp-theme and student-age. Most camps incorporate several mediums. Sometimes a collaborative group project results in a studio installation piece created by all students working together! Specified programs combine Visual & Movement Arts like Dance, Yoga- even the Art of Sport- all taught by Raleigh’s favorite kids’ teachers!  Programs also incorporate Stories, Songs, Games, Sharing & Fun into the Artistic Experience of WILD AT ART!
 
Come Let Your Creativity Run Wild!
 
SUMMER CAMP FAQs:

WHAT TO BRING:   

  • SNACK & WATER BOTTLE for ALL camps 
  • LUNCH for AM camps only
  • CLOTHES that can GET DIRTY!!!

WE ARE NOW MOVING TOWARD A PEANUT-FREE FACILITY:  Due to the many serious allergy-conditions of some of our campers, we have decided this summer to begin the process of going peanut-free. Since this is new to many of our families who are used to bring PB&J, we are taking it week-by-week for now, and gently reminding. However, if there is an allergy in a given week (please let us know in advance), we will remind ALL who will be in the studio that week NOT to bring any peanut products.  

AGE-GROUPS & RANGES:  We try to arrange age ranges to best support a curriculum and medium being taught. Camps specifying multiple age-groups are simultaneous but usually separate groups/classes in different studio areas (w/ a few possible joint-activities). Some camps & programs are taught in a Montessori-style with broader age-range groups, learning and sharing together creatively. Occasional age exceptions are made upon Parent Request. [i.e. placing siblings/friends together, or a slightly younger child in older group] PLEASE CALL FIRST! We strive to provide the best possible educational, developmental and enjoyable experience for all the children in our programs. We use these age-breaks for registration & teaching guidelines, but adjustments may be made during the camp week to accommodate class sizes & curriculum.  Please make us aware if your child has any special needs that our teachers may need to know so that we can give them the best experience we can(i.e: behavioral). 

  • ALL CAMPERS MUST be POTTY-TRAINED
  • YOU MUST REGISTER EACH CHILD INDIVIDUALLY TO HOLD A SPOT
  • CAMPS WILL BE MARKED FULL WHEN THERE ARE NO MORE SPOTS.

CANCELLATION/ DEPOSIT & REFUND POLICY: 
** $50 of each individual camp-week Tuition ($50/camp per child) is a non-refundable camp deposit ** This guarantees your spot in a camp for which someone else cannot register. If the Studio is notified of Cancellation or Request-to-Transfer [by phone or email] prior to 21-days before the camp start date [COB 5p on the MONDAY THREE WEEKS PRIOR to the camp start-date], we can do one of the following:
1)  Transfer your registration & full payment toward another camp within the same calendar year, subject to availability of spots  -OR-
2)  Credit or Refund the tuition amount minus the $50 nonrefundable deposit
Note:  Within the three-week period prior to camp, the studio is not required to return any payments, as we may not be able to fill the vacant spot.  Of course, we do understand special circumstances and always try our very best to work with our loyal customers if at all possible.
