Vortex Studio Summer camp update – Covid-19

– Thank you for your interest in Vortex Studio. Due to Covid-19 we have unfortunately had to make some changes to our Summer plans. For the foreseeable future we will be closed for classes and camp. This decision is not one that we take lightly. We LOVE hosting summer art camp but as this is such an uncertain time, and children and our staff’s safety comes first, we have decided not to run a full summer of camp. 

As there has not been any information as to the government’s intentions and safety guidelines regarding summer camp just yet, we are unable to move forward with any solid plans. As it stands right now we can confirm that there will definitely be no camp for June and most of July. 

We have spent our last few summers running an amazingly creative and all-encompassing art camp. We do know that if we run summer camp this year the outline of our program will have to be very different with much fewer campers. Because of this we are concerned about keeping the integrity of an openly creative and positive environment where children feel safe and at home. Where they have the full use of all the supplies in the studio and the freedom to explore ideas as they come. This may not be possible this year, as well as the ability to get quality art supplies. As the weeks pass and more information becomes available we will continue to monitor the current situation and update the website as we know more.

We understand some families’ dire need for summer camp as their work situations do not allow for summers off so this is the main reason we are even considering running camp at all. If you know that you will be in need of camp and would like to be added to a 

“keep me updated list” Please email us at artatvortexstudio@gmail.com

We will be separating our groups weekly based on how long children can work on projects rather then age. We will have the “longer focus group” & “Art & play” group. These groups will be determined once we meet our campers. Please note: All art instructions are given in english.
