Camps

We are excited to announce we will be running daily Art Camp (Ages 7-15) starting June 27th - Sept 2nd in our Hamilton, NJ studio! Since 2013 we have contributed to the well-being and creative potential of our community's youth through our summer camps. This summer, we will combine immersive art, the outdoors, yoga, and meditation to foster a fun, safe, and memorable time for each child. We feel our focused attention is vital in each child's life, therefore, our class sizes are kept limited - This helps keep us socially distanced as well. We aim to ensure a low teacher-student ratio, to provide an enriching, personalized experience for each child! We’ll be inspired by nature, art history, favorite colors, textures, and our own imaginations! 

There will be one section run for 7-10 year olds, and a separate section for 11-15 year olds, with age appropriate art projects every morning and afternoon. Including, but not limited to: Watercolors, Paper Mache, Acrylic Painting, Drawing, Color Pencils, Pastels, Mixed Media Collage, Clay Sculpture, and more!  We mix it up every day to keep it exciting for the kids! Our goal is to spark their sense of wonder, find friendship, and inspire creativity every day! If your child has something specific in mind, please tell us in the Camp Registration Form, and we will try our best to include the request! 

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 at The Heart of Art!

- Our fun begins with incorporating simple yoga poses and some breathing meditation into our morning routine. Starting the day by stretching keeps us focused and breath work keeps us calm :) 

- Daily art lessons are inspired by student interests, nature, or holidays.

- We try to get in some outdoor time (weather permitting) every day.

- This camp is small enough for children to get individual attention and work at their own pace. 

The schedule may vary slightly based on the weather, or needs of the campers to finish a project. For example, we may go outside for Morning Stretch & Yoga and stay longer than 9:30am if it's a beautiful day, or play indoors during snack if it’s rainy.
