Summer Camps


Brenda Beattie and Darla Anderson have joined forces to offer two exciting weeks of Fine Art and Music Summer Camps for children aged five to twelve years old. These Summer Camps take place in a quaint, century old school house in the Blue Mountains and run from 9:30am to 3:30pm Monday through Friday.  Nurture your child’s creativity and enrich their summer experience through a week-long immersion in art and music. Students will come home from Fine Art and Music Summer Camps with new skills, new friends and a deeper appreciation for the arts.

MUSIC: Your child will have fun playing percussion instruments, engaging in eurythmics, and singing.  Based on the Orff approach, imitation, experimentation, and personal expression occur naturally as students become confident, life-long musicians and creative problem solvers.  Children will explore their own creative expression in a non-competitive atmosphere that encourages respect and appreciation for each other.

ART: Your child will learn techniques in painting, drawing and sculpture through two and three dimensional, project-based art adventures.   Students are encouraged to both dive deep into their imagination and foster a greater understanding of visual language to enrich their expression.  Together we will connect to our artistic spirits and embrace the summer weather by painting and drawing outside, all within our culture of friendship.

During each week at Art and Music Summer Camp, various themes and cultures are explored. Changes are made each year to the material used in reoccurring themes however some art projects and performance songs are repeated.  This allows students to enrich their experience at Fine Art and Music Summer Camp through both increased skill development, and gaining confidence as both an artist and a musician.

The children’s musical and artistic talents culminate in a magical outdoor performance and art exhibit on Friday at 3:00 pm.  Please bring family and friends.

Students are required to bring: a water bottle, sunscreen, a snack and lunch, and are encouraged to wear/bring clothes for messy art projects and variable weather.  Fresh fruit is provided everday at the camp.

Fine Art and Music Summer Camp provides volunteer opportunities for students aged 13 and up. Two paid positions are also available for senior high school or university students.
