Journey into Art – 3rd-8th grade
This all new fine arts program encourages campers to embark on a journey of self discovery through art. Our beautiful Pearson Center for the Arts facility and creative, qualified teachers provide opportunities and enthusiastic guidance to artists of all levels. Classes are grouped by age, and campers spend the morning travelling through different areas of the art center exploring clay, paint, paper, mosaics, wood, and more through individual lessons and group projects.
Small class size allows teachers to provide the personal attention necessary to inspire young artists to solve problems creatively, practice art techniques and discover modes of self-expression in a safe and nurturing environment.
Campers will journey off campus during each session to meet local artists and explore galleries and shops in the town of Ojai. This unique artist community is rich with opportunities for art education and exploration. Local artists will also drop into class, to introduce new art styles and provide inspiration for future works. Our goal is to build confidence in our campers, spark creativity and encourage them to become designers of their own world, in and out of the art room!
In the afternoon, campers join their peers for the afternoon activities, and resident campers enjoy even more fun during dorm activities and special events!
