Fine Arts Camp is a specialty program offered each morning for day and resident campers, ages 8-15, to explore various mediums of art and collaborate with creative teachers in our Pearson Center for the Arts. Classes are grouped by age as campers 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.
Ojai is known worldwide for its thriving arts community and OVS brings professional artists into this unique program to teach student artists of all levels. Campers will journey off campus each session to meet local artists and explore galleries and shops in the town of Ojai. 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 more fun during dorm activities and special events.
