New summer camps designed for young artists
June 28, 2010

For the first time, NSCAD University’s School of Extended Studies is offering kids and teens, aged 5 to 15+, a chance to ignite their creativity with a series of all-day, week-long summer art camps.

Running for six consecutive weeks from July 5 to August 13, the camps offer aspiring young artists a chance to learn from NSCAD instructors, who’ll introduce them to the joys of drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, fashion, printmaking, graphic design, animation and more.

“From papier mâché and sock monkey projects for the younger campers to jewellery and digital film making for the teens, NSCAD’s summer camps make art fun and accessible for everyone,” says Sharon Blanchard, Director, School of Extended Studies. “By week’s end, each camper will be creating wonderfully inspired pieces, destined for our annual ArtRageous exhibition.”

Classes will be held at both the Granville and Port Campuses. Full-day camps are open to those aged eight years and up; the $325/week registration fee includes all instruction art materials, off-site visits, studio space, lunch-time supervision – along with a nifty t-shirt. A half-day version for children aged 5 to 7 is available for $165/week.
