Monet, Renoir and Cézanne were among many artists who made the outdoors their studio. The French expression, en plein air, meaning “in the open air” refers to the act of painting outdoors. This allows artists to capture the natural light, movement and color in their work.
Due to the current situation, it is still unclear if we will be able to offer our summer camps in studio this year. We've decided to take this as an opportunity to offer a unique and engaging art experience to your children this summer. We will be moving our high quality standards for art education outdoors. students will work in the fresh air, sunshine and amongst nature! They will have the opportunity to engage with peers and get exercise while learning and creating art.

Students will be required to purchase supplies to participate, we are providing a supply kit for an additional $30 which will be added to the cost.
