Our campers enjoy the vicinity of Alameda parks and beaches. We take daily walks to Longfellow Park which is a 4-minute walking distance (2 blocks) from the studio. We also usually include a field trip to the beach once a week which is 8 minutes walking distance. Students engage in nature art activities and plein air painting/drawing. 

Each Friday from 2:30 - 3:00 pm we will have an art reception at the studio to celebrate the artwork that our students have created during the camp. Families and friends are invited to join us. If you would like to bring a potluck item at this time, it would be most welcome.


"This has been my daughter's favorite camp during non-school times - even at a fairly young age she loves having the space to create with different mediums and the guidance to continue to develop as an artist. When she comes home she proudly shows us the new additions to her portfolio each day. And most importantly, she has fun."
