"Art takes nature as its model." - Aristotle

In Art & Nature camp, kids will create mandalas from natural materials, learn outdoor games, and work to make group art projects from natural materials.  We will go on daily hikes and use nature as our inspiration for creating works of art. Parents are invited to view an art gallery curated by the campers on Friday afternoon at 3:00PM. 

The children will spend 30 - 45 minutes outside during the morning and afternoon on the shaded campus.  Some children choose to work on their personal art projects during this time while others get plenty of exercise. 

All camps focus on the process of making art rather than finished product. Research shows that providing children with open ended activities promotes creativity. Ultimately, at this camp we focus on developing creativity, collaboration, patience with the process of bringing a vision to life, and  a love for learning.  Your child will not come home with the same creations as the other children because we leave space for the children to synthesize information and play. 

All of the summer camps meet at Four Seasons Community School at  3909 Adelphi Lane in Austin, Texas. Campers may check in at the front office at 9am, and can be picked up in front of the school at 3 PM daily. Campers are expected to bring a lunch and 2 snacks each day. Please wear clothes that you can get messy in because we plan on having a blast!
