This series is all about freedom to create at your own pace, in your own style and in an inviting art studio. A place where art kids can connect with each other as they work. Creatives will doodle, cartoon, scribble, or draw. They get feedback from the instructor only if they seek it. Awesome art supplies and tools are provide for everyone.

We know the art school audition process can be exciting and stressful to students and parents alike. CAMP can help. Students in our Portfolio Prep class work on individual art projects in order to pick and choose from the best examples of their  work to submit. All art materials are supplied. Plenty of guidance and encouragement, but please know, it's a "hands-off" art approach which is required by all art schools when submitting displays and portfolios (yep - our students do all their own work). Also students enrolled in Portfolio Preparation may take our test taking workshop and mock drawing tests for free. Students not applying to an art school, but would like additional instruction on independent projects are also welcomed to join this studio time. 

Please note: 5 of our 6 students who applied to SOA this year were accepted, but CAMP in no way guarantees admission to a school. Main Instructor: Kathleen Fox  (other CAMP Instructors will guide in specific art forms as needed.)
