Sebastopol Center of the Arts day camps offer fun, creative and hands-on activities while developing artistic skills and building character. Campers will gain new friendships as they are taught different art mediums from professional artists around the community. Each camp offers around 4 hours of hands-on creative experience with morning and afternoon sessions. Children will work in groups as well as independently throughout the week as they develop skills such as painting, ceramics, drawing, design and more.
The last day of each session, an exhibit will be held for each camp so family and friends can come see the work which was done by each child throughout the week. We love showing off the artwork these talented children create and encourage all to enjoy this highlight exhibit each week!
Classes are Monday – Friday | 9am-3pm
$200 per class materials are included
Drop off is at 9am and pick up is at 3pm.
Make sure to pack a lunch and a snack for each day. Water will be available.
Experience the Japanese firing technique of Raku! Campers will spend the beginning of the week making pots and sculptures by hand, using a variety of hand-building techniques, and on the potter's wheel. At the end of the week campers will glaze and fire their pieces using our outdoor raku kiln.
The Art of Game Design Bring life to those game ideas you’ve always had in your head! The process to creating a tabletop game is a very creative one: honing in on game mechanics, refining card and board design, creating pieces, and more. Art makes up a huge component of games, from compelling us to pull it off the shelf to immersing us in imaginative experience while we play. We’ll use a variety of art techniques- painting, drawing, sculpting, and more- to create any board game you can dream up.
This course serves as an introduction to playing the Ukulele. This course is perfect for the beginner ukulele player that is looking to start playing and having fun! We will be focusing on learning basic chords, strumming patterns and improvising. Students will also be taught how to tune their ukuleles by ear and even learn to create and write their own music!
Under the Magnifying Glass: Seeing Hidden Worlds Through Art Nature offers so many tiny, unseen worlds that humans barely see. But what can we notice when we really look? Using a variety of art materials- handmade paints and inks, clay, reclaimed materials, and more- we’ll render our interpretations of nature’s hidden beauty, both real and imagined.
We will make beautiful and unique weavings with yarn, fabric, lace, beads, buttons, flowers and all kind of fun materials. We will also layer things on top of the weaving, and hang things from the weaving, making it super fun, amazing and special. Then, we'll attach a backing, so you can hang your pieces on the wall for everyone to enjoy.
Campers will recreate characters from Maurice Sendak's classic children's book, Where the Wild Things Are, as well as bring their own imagination into play by painting, sculpting and building their own special "wild" creations.
Do you adore animals? We do! It’s time to celebrate the love provided by these irreplaceable furry, feathered, scaly, slimy, hooved and loving friends. We will spend time studying their expressions and funny antics. Find the animal you would like to paint, draw or sculpt while observing them in their natural habitat, or bring in photos of your own to work from. We will assist you in the studio to make sure you create an art piece that’s just as endearing and unique as you are.
