  • We are offering multiple discounts this year. First, we are offering families an “Early Bird” 10% discount on all camps (excluding Drone Camps) if they register by March 16, 2018. Second, we are offering a “Sibling” discount of 10% for those families who register multiple children in our programs (campers do not have to attend the SAME camp for this to apply).
  • For the first time ever, we are offering families with younger children a summer camp option. Our Young Saints program is geared towards students ages 5-12, and will be offered every week (ending August 17th). Please see the attached brochure for more information.

Clay Magic
Ages 9 to 13
July 9-13
9am-3pm
Cost: $350
Clay is a truly magical material. You can make whatever you’d like out of it using your only
hands. The act of creation is so genuine with clay; the artist is fully invested in the material and
has direct contact with it at all times from start to finish. The final results are limitless; using
clay, a young artist can make both imaginative sculptures as well as functional items like jewelry
boxes, jars, cups, bowls, and plates. This camp is all about working with clay and the act of
creating something with your hands. In the mornings, we will work in the clay studio using
earthenware to produce sculptures and useful objects, and in the afternoon, we will work in the
computer lab using colored polymer clay to create Claymation movies. The best known
Claymation movies are with the characters Wallace and Gromit, they are created using clay and
come to life with stop-motion animation. Stop-motion animation is used in animation to bring
static objects to life on screen. This is done by moving the clay object in increments while
filming a frame per increment. When all the frames are played in sequence it shows
movement. Clay can be manipulated and moved with ease, and it is a perfect material to use
for creating movies. This week-long camp explores the many possibilities of clay and is an
ultimate hands-on experience.

Cups, Plates and Bowls! Oh my!
