ART FACTS & SAMPLE SCHEDULES

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 weekly theme.
  • Campers do not need to register for the two weeks of each set of themes.  Individual weeks are encouraged, as well, and connections will be made between the set of themes.
  • Campers are taken on the Kiwanis Park playground (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.
  • Campers will also have the opportunity to spend supervised time outside to engage in sketching and other art activities.
  • All campers must bring lunch Monday-Thursday and water each day.  We encourage “green” reusable water bottles and containers.
  • KNMA will provide a pizza lunch from each Friday.
  • 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.  We will issue $60 per family in Kids Art Express Certificates when siblings are registered.
  • We wear socks in the studio to keep our floors clean and free of germs.  We always have clean socks in the studio, but please feel free to bring your own.
  • 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!

On and Off!

“Turn on the Art” as we kick off a summer of creativity and fun and explore the bright side of art through the works of light and space artist James Turrell, or gather inspiration from the fantastical installations of Dan Flavin to see how light can transform art.  Then, see what happens when you follow the artists of the futurist movement to “turn off” the conventional rules of art, or let your imagination be your guide to fascinating works in the spirit of Jean Dubuffet and his Art Brut raw art movement that encourages personality and expression.

On:   June 6th – June 10th
Off:  June 13th – June 17th
