Art Camps




All camps are designed for 10-12 students from age 5-12 years old (kinder-5th grade) and include two consecutive days of classes at two hours each day. For example, Art and Nature meets on Monday and Tuesday from 9-11am for a total of four instruction hours.

A two day camp is only $35 plus a $5 materials/supply fee.

If you are participating in an Art Camp, please bring a small snack and a drink for our short break around 10am.

All Art Camps are held at the Brighton Montessori School located at 203 S. 3rd Ave, Brighton, CO 80601.



Art and Nature

Can't get enough of the great outdoors? Many artists like Monet or O'Keeffe got their ideas and inspiration from being outside. We'll spend some time creating a nature sketchbook and then go outside (in the shade!) for a scavenger hunt to add nature inspired artifacts and drawings. Projects include a sketchbook for our nature scavenger hunt and a landscape painting or drawing.

Dates:    Mon/Tues, July 16 &17 from 9-11am
              Wed/Thurs, August 1 & 2 from 9-11am

Printmaking

Join the world of Andy Warhol and printmaking by repeating images. In this class we will experiment with a variety of printmaking techniques including monotype, styrofoam and stamping using found objects, cds, pans, and even potatoes! Each student will create at least one original print which we will make into a 12 month calendar.

Dates:    Wed/Thurs, July 18 &19 from 9-11am
