Vortex Summer Camp 2018
We are so excited to offer our first summer camp at Vortex art studio! March Break was amazing and inspiring! We can’t wait to see what everyone will be making next.
We have all new and exciting exercises and projects for the kids and teens ready! 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!

What to expect from our camp days:
We have exciting lesson plans set to ease the kiddos into art making in a positive environment using a wide variety of tools and supplies. The beginning of our camp days will be based around them becoming familiar with the studio, our projects and the supplies by testing them out in sketchbooks and on paper. Everyone will work towards an understanding of what it means to make art with unique mixed media materials and how to best portray a message or a story in an unconventional way with different material.Camps are limited attendance. Maximum 10 students and all projects will be geared towards each students age and ability. Throughout the day, they will learn that different supplies send different visual messages and the possibilities are as endless as their imagination!
We do supply all of the art materials needed for the art classes but we ask that your children bring:
-A sketch book to record their ideas and visual notes if they have one. If not we have lots of paper 🙂
-CLOTHING THEY CAN GET MESSY! Paint ALWAYS finds its way to nice clothing. We have lots of smocks but always better to be safe.
-Outdoor clothing (i.e. hat)
-Lunch and snacks
Please let me know ahead of time if there is any allergies that I should know about or let others know about (i.e. peanuts).
