We are thrilled to announce the highly anticipated Camp Creative: Giant Abstract Sculptures, Inspired by Packaging Waste. Get ready to embark on a transformative journey that will ignite your young artists’ creativity and take them on an immersive week-long adventure. 

We have an incredible lineup of activities and experiences carefully curated to inspire and engage young minds. From creating abstract self-portrait collage sculptures to crafting Egg Carton Creatures, and from writing thought-provoking poems about garbage to expressing their views through letters to the planet, our camp offers a wide range of opportunities for your children to explore their artistic potential. They will also have the chance to draw pictures about throwing things away and write letters from the perspective of creatures and plants affected by garbage, encouraging them to think creatively about transforming waste into art. 

As the week unfolds, your children’s artistic endeavors will come to life, culminating in a End of Week exhibition. This grand showcase will proudly display the culmination of their creative explorations, providing a platform for them to shine and celebrate their newfound talents. It’s an event that promises to leave a lasting impression and one that you won’t want to miss. 

We warmly invite you to join us for this immersive experience, where your young artists can freely explore their creativity and parents can marvel at the beautiful expressions of their children. It’s a week filled with inspiration, imagination, and pure joy that will create lasting memories and foster a deep appreciation for the power of art.
