Drawn to Nature Wide Back Centered

Elementary Visual Art Camp

Drawing. Painting. Collage. Installation. Multimedia. Crafting. TAP’s Summer Arts program offers children ages 4-9 an art camp experience in a variety of traditional and non-traditional art medias! This year for our “Drawn to Nature Art Camp” we will explore the natural world through the arts! Campers will enjoy a fun-filled week of art making inspired by nature and the impact we have on our environment. Students ages 4-5 will be engaged in two different art classes while 6-9 year olds will rotate between two visual arts classes and an inclusive theatre performance class that covers stage presence, acting exercises, and storytelling which is available five of the six weeks of camp. Campers ages 7-9 can also sign up for our AM or PM elementary clay camp and ages 9-12 can join us in our afternoon session called “Dig A Little Deeper”. For students that are registered for both a morning and an afternoon camp, we offer a supervised lunch period (lunch not provided). Classes fill quickly, so register early!

Summer camp registration begins March 9, 2016 9:30am in person and online & 12pm for phone in.

HYDE & SEEK ARTventure Camp 2016 @ Hyde Farm*** 

Looking for a camp that allows your 7-12 year old find their hidden creative side while seeking their wild side? In this truly one of a kind outdoor art camp we will explore the historic Hyde Farm property, hike to the Chattahoochee River, take a nature walk and use all of this exciting outdoor time to create awesome works of art inspired by nature.

This farm has 45 acres of historic property with lakes, hiking trails, and a home that we will be using for the art studios. This summer we will once again enjoy the magic of the farm, while studying the animals that live there, hike the property, experience printmaking, and learn to draw and paint the nature surrounding you. Art and possibly theatre projects are in the planning stage. Plans will vary with instructors that are part of the day. Your outdoor artist will not want to miss this ARTventure at Hyde Farm! Space limited to 30 students, register early!
