We are so excited we will be offering full week art and art based summer camp from July – August 2020

We have all new and exciting exercises and projects for the kids and teens! We always customize projects to our campers’ age, abilities and interests. Each week, we will work on different fine-art and art-based crafts ensuring each child will get a FULL understanding of art making as we dive into all kinds of projects with every art supply you can imagine!

Vortex Art Studio is located in the heart of cute Wakefield, Quebec. The large studio can accommodate 30 art makers at a time but we keep our camp groups very small.

Vortex has 2.5 acres of green space to work on. We have a large shaded deck attached to the studio and a sensory garden for landscape drawing and painting.  We are excited to work inside and out during camp week.

Vortex is picky about our supplies. We only use paint, brushes, paper and canvas that we would be proud to personally use ourselves! We also incorporate lots of recycled and natural materials when appropriate.

Each child will work on numerous projects throughout the week that they will bring home. We work on all kinds of different projects during the week such as mobile making with natures materials, mixed media, clay work, paper mashe, drawing, painting, bedroom crafts, jewelry,  and lots of projects requested by the kiddos. We will do landscape drawing and painting in the sensory garden and back yard tranquility space.

We will take brakes for snacks and free form play. And quite time for art book reading from our library and idea development. Exercises are built on the premise that children and teens learn though doing and asking questions. Lets get our hands dirty and make something amazing!
