Summer Art Series at Pine Jog

Go Out and Play!

2017 Summer Art Series at the Pine Jog Environmental Education Center

 

 

Summer’s coming, but don’t let the heat keep your young artist from enjoying the wonders of nature in full bloom!

The 150-acre preserve at the Pine Jog Environmental Education Center
offers so many amazing opportunities to explore nature at the peak of its
season.

to “Go Out and Play” and then bring the outdoors to life in the comfort of
the studio through nature-inspired art!

Week 2: July 17th – July 21st

ART FACTS & SAMPLE SCHEDULES

Pine Jog “Go Out & Play” Summer Art Series - Read More

Art Facts:

  • Weekly camp fee includes all art material, registration fee, one camp t-shirt, and a bag.
  • Since we get messy in art, campers are to wear their camp shirts each day.  We also use aprons in the studio. Additional camp shirts can be purchased for $15/each.
  • Every week is staffed with a certified art teacher and intern with an approximate 1:7 staff/student ratio.  All campers will be in the same age group.
  • Young artists are expected to create at least three major projects and two minor ones within the five days using a mixed media approach.
  • Young artists will also be exposed to master artist studies and educational resources based on our science, nature, and art program.
  • Campers take daily walks on the trails of Pine Jog (weather-permitting) at least twice a day and are fully supervised by our staff.  For this reason, campers MUST wear sneakers or closed-toe shoes and wear their KNMA camp shirts each day.  We also encourage children to wear hats, sunscreen, and bug spray.
  • Campers will also have the opportunity to spend supervised time outside to engage in sketching and other art activities.
  • All campers must bring water.  We encourage “green” reusable water bottles and containers.
  • All campers should pack a morning and afternoon snack each camp day, as well as lunch and a drink.  KNMA offers additional snacks for sale on site as well.  If you would like your camper to purchase additional snacks, please ensure they bring cash.
  • KNMA prices our camps out as low as possible to account for sibling and multiple week discounts.
  • KNMA offers a fun, safe, creative, nurturing, and educational environment.  We reserve the right to dismiss a child from camp without refund who is continually disruptive to our overall environment and does not adjust to repeated requests or family support.  Half-day options are available from 9am-12noon if our week is not full.  Half-day spots will be released the Friday before the start of camp.
  • Due to the nature of our art projects and program, we cannot accommodate daily registrations.
  • All camp fees are due on or before June 1st.  No refund or changes to registrations can be made after that date.  However, KNMA will give credit for any missed days via our Kids Art Express gift certificates.
  • KNMA is proud of our Summer Art Series and promises to work hard to make your child’s time with us creatively enjoyable and rewarding.  Thank you!
