ART CAMP IS TAKING A SABBATICAL IN 2014

The past five years of producing our summer multidisciplinary art camp has been pure joy and we thank our dedicated parents, campers & volunteers for all of their support we cannot over state this blessing! Seeing the connections our campers develop with local artists & musicians is part of the miracle. And there is evidence that our success of facilitating new ways of creative decision-making actually "got in" with our campers even when we weren't looking!

Enjoy this photo retrospective and look for us again next year. We realize Austin is filled with terrific summer camps so we welcome your email feedback as to how our summer art camp program made a difference with your child with you in your family if you are part of our past camp family. We strive to be your favorite art camp with positive outcomes! The values we bring to camp and share with campers is sincere with intentional planning for community thinking. We strive to not be an average camp experience we strive for shaping life skills through the creative process.



Our campers are story tellers:

These are just a few of the good times during past summer art camps. Bringing local arts leaders to our kids is nothing short of magical!

So if you or your company would like to sponsor our next season of summer art camp success, please let us know. We appreciate the opportunity to pair up and plan our mutual goals for this very important work of inspiring our next generation of creative thinkers in our community. Together we can inform them by example of their power to make a difference in our world throughout their lives thank you!
