This exciting program is carefully designed with promising young artists ages 5-13. Campers rotate through three classes each day with a break for refreshments (provided by River Oaks). Summer Arts Studio is held in the Studio Annex Building of River Oaks Square Arts Center in downtown Alexandria, La. Each camp session incorporates projects using a variety of media. There will be ceramic projects, painting projects, acting, etc. During 2 week sessions every student learns basic ceramic procedures like pinch, slab and coil methods of construction. During 1 week sessions cooking class replaces ceramics class.
The last Thursday of each session is we host our Themed Thursday event. This is an awesome day that campers dress-up, create themed day art projects, particpate unique studio group challenges and finish the day with a party.
The daily studio group challenges instill all the benefits that come from team building - team work, communication, leadership, confidence, responsibility trust, respect and create a unique culture at camp.
The Board of directors of River Oaks donates a camp t-shirt to every camper. These commemorative camp shirts are brought home after Tie-Dye Tuesday.
Our ceramics and painting studios are modern and fully equipped. Our instructors are working artists and our Group Leaders & L.I.T.s are alumni of this Summer Arts Studio Program. We are certainly excited about the upcoming summer and hope you choose to send your young artist to Summer Arts Studio for one or more of our unique sessions.
