Summer Camp Art School 2021

With Alameda now being in the orange tier, we can safely host these sessions considering the size of our studio as well as our new studio arrangement allowing 10 ft distance between students. Each student would be working at a personal table. We are also lucky to have seven large windows plus the terrace exit to provide a well ventilated environment and an outdoor experience. Depending on the current recommendation of our health officials, the camp will take place in any combination of our studio, our studio's terrace and the nearly Crab Cove outdoor area.

We are prepared to keep our students safe with additional measures such as disinfection of art supplies, temperature checkups, mandatory masks, hand sanitizer, etc. It will be the same teacher and the same intern in all sessions, both fully vaccinated.

July 19 - 23
July 26 - 30 
Mon - Fri, 9 am - 3 pm
Tuition: $385 per week

We have to keep minimum amount of students for now, but as the pandemic situation improves, we might be able to open more spots.

Studio 1.6 Art Camp reinforces learning all year long providing quality art instruction engaging art projects that encourage creativity. Our curriculum includes instruction in drawing, painting and sculpture. Our bright and spacious studio and its serene environment are ideal for cultivating creativity, whether for children that love to express themselves through the arts, or a youth preparing for various professions in the creative field.

We take daily walks to Longfellow Park which is a 4-minute walking distance (2 blocks) from the studio and Crab Cove beach which is 8 minutes walking distance. Students engage in nature art activities and plein air painting/drawing.


"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."
