Summer Art Camps 2018

It's time for summer art camps again!  Here they are. To register your child, contact me by text, phone or email.  If you're new and don't have my contact information, leave me a message via my website ( or find me on Facebook and I'll be glad to add your little one! Please give your child's name and grade, plus your cell phone number and email address so that I can send reminders.  I also need to know about any allergies. Class sizes are limited and first come, first serve. Full payment reserves your child’s spot in art camp. Checks may be made to Katie Podracky.

Clay Days
July 11 & 12 AND a glazing day (Aug 1 or 2) (rising 2nd-6th) 9 a.m.-12 p.m.
During the first two days of camp, we will experiment with slab building techniques and campers can choose to work on animal pinch pots, coil pots or their own clay idea creations. The pottery wheel will be available for experimentation as well. All clay pieces will be fired and campers return for one glazing day (9-12 am), on a day that fits their schedule. (August 1or 2 are scheduled glaze day options, but I can open some days in late July to meet everyone’s needs too).

Watercolor Seascapes  
August 8 & 9  (rising 2nd-6th) 9 a.m.-12 p.m.
Back by popular demand, this project features beautiful splashy watercolor techniques on paper. We use the paper to collage a seascape complete with boats, corals, mermaids and anything else campers fancy. The art will be frame worthy! This is one of my favorite camps.

Paint a Saltwater Marsh
August 15 & 16  (rising 3nd-7th) 9 a.m.-12 p.m.
I’ll teach some of my favorite underpainting methods and show you how to make your very own saltwater marsh scene with layers of paint and LOTS of color. This is the “fine art” version of summer camps where we paint on canvas like professional artists.  Please wear old clothes that can get stained.

Batik Scarf
August 22 & 23 (rising 3nd-7th) 9 a.m.-12 p.m.
In this camp, we will create a beautiful scarf using methods of batik wax resist and fabric dyeing. Scarves can be worn, of course, or they can be used to wrap a special gift, to frame as art, or as a fun part of your next interpretive dance routine!

September 13th:  Small group art lessons begin on Thursdays from 2:45-3:45 p.m. (rising 2nd-5th grades)

$15/ class. Limit of 10 students
