Plein Air Outdoor Arts

Summer Camp

This week-long, inner city day camp has us wandering through the urban wilds in search of a natural muse. Through drawing, photography, ceramics, sculpture, and performance, we observe and interact with the ecology around us. We’re delighted to partner with Workshop Studios where we’ll also try our hand at throwing clay on the wheel. Campers will create their own one-of-a-kind ceramic artwork!

During the week we visit art galleries, studios, and public works to sharpen our expressive skills. We make up games, dip into swimming holes, climb on things, ride our bikes, and cloud gaze to stoke our curiosity and deepen our bond with the wild, wonderful world.
