Instructors: Lisa Wolfgang and Christine Nockels

In this weeklong 2D & 3D arts camp, students will use nature as inspiration when exploring a variety of messy mediums. Create larger-than-life acrylic paintings of local flora, splash watercolors on paper, create freestanding sculptures, and use clay, mud, and other natural materials to create sculptural forest palaces!

Camp fee: $150 ($125 for siblings). After paying, please complete an Enrollment Form. Catamount Arts is committed to offering quality arts experiences for all students, regardless of ability to pay; please call Anne at 802-748-2600 ext. 109 for information about scholarship funds.

Partial funding provided by an Afterschool and Summer Expanding Access grant.
