Summer Camp 2019

City Art Farm is the best place to be in the summer. We offer  art classes to keep the mind active, and space to breathe.  We like to keep moving at this time of year with lots of projects for and from the garden. The chickens and goats keep us on our toes too. This year will a little shorter - only 5 weeks of exploring different materials.  The first 2 weeks are for my older students- ages 11- 15  and the last 3 will be ages 6 and up. Don't forget drop in open studio is for ages 6 and up including grownups 


July 8- August 9
Summertime Drop In Open Studio
This time is set aside for those artists that like to work on independently. I supply materials and limit instruction as needed.  I also have lots of ideas if you get stumped.   Last year we made Artist Trading Cards.  I know I want my collection to grow this summer!. Grownups are welcome to join us -  I would love to have more adults participating in creating, so don’t be shy- come on in and make something with or without a little person.

Open Studio is pay as you go. 
Ages 6-up   

Monday-Friday 2-4:00      $25. per day
