Art & Film Summer Camps
We will be running daily Art Camp (Ages 7-11) and Film Camps (Ages 8-14) starting June 22nd - Sept 8th in our Hamilton, NJ studio. Class sizes will be limited, to ensure a low teacher-student ratio, and enriching, personalized experience for your child! We’ll be inspired by nature, art history, and our own imaginations!
So if you are looking for a camp where your child will have individual attention and be able to work at his/her own pace, you've found it!
