At Camp Creative, we show our love for nature


Description: join us for an exciting week of artistic exploration in our Eco Art Camp! Each day, young artists will discover the beauty of various scapes – from Cityscapes, Landscape, Desertscapes, Seascapes, to Cloudscapes.

Throughout the week, participants will experiment with paint and color mixing, learning to express their imaginative visions on canvas. Using sponge techniques and brushwork, campers will delve into the art of painting landscapes, complete with background, middle-ground, and foreground elements. They will master the skill of adding intricate details, highlights, and lowlights to bring their creations to life.

Our Eco Week Workshop goes beyond traditional art methods, giving our young artists an eco-friendly perspective. Participants will utilize handmade stamps, recycled paper from home, cardboard, and even create their own plant-based paints. Incorporating natural materials such as leaves, twigs, and recycled fabrics, each artwork becomes a unique “masterpiece” inspired by the wonders of nature.

The camp experience extends beyond the studio with nature walks, providing inspiration for our young artists. Join us for a week filled with creativity, environmental consciousness, and a whole lot of fun!
