Seasonal Art Camps

During Thanksgiving and Winter Break we do a holiday themed camp that includes: one day creating clay ornaments and one day of watercolor painting project that can be used as holiday cards or a gift. They may also select to choose a project to complete like in our normal Summer Camp classes in lieu of the optional holiday themed projects. Check the registration page for dates and pricing.

Summer and Spring Break Art Camps

Our Fine Art Camps offers a variety of seasonal camps for Spring Break, Summer, Thanksgiving and Winter! Our schedule for holidays are in line with Cy-Fair ISD’s school schedule.

Camps are split into two groups for ages 6-12 year olds and Teen camps for 12- 18 year olds interested in participating in a rich and fun creative experience. Students will enjoy developing their personal visions and ideas under the direction of enthusiastic instructors.

Students crave to learn “REAL ART SKILLS”. Provided with age targeted Individual Instruction and Step-by-Step Demos of professional art techniques, tricks and tips they can create amazing works of art. Developed by Master Artist Mentor and Founder Thomas S. Cleveland to be easy to follow and simple to do regardless of experience (or talent) level. Sharing his internationally recognized artistic knowledge and experience, including 10 years as a United States Mint’s Artistic Infusion Program Master Designer of coins and medals, makes our camps like all our students, one of a kind!

Children and teens will have the opportunity to create traditional paintings, work with clay to make seasonal ornaments or design seasonal cards using mixed media (watercolor, colored pencil, tempera and pastel).

Space is exclusive and limited. Reserve your artist’s desk now!

Teens will work on any medium they choose; watercolor, colored pencils, mixed-media, acrylic or graphite. They may bring drawings or images from home that they would like to work on with our trained instructors or choose from our library of images. We encourage teens to build on their art style and will help them to improve in realism.

Teens may focus their artwork on any style they choose; whether it is their own or one they would like to learn. Some examples include: portraits, wild-life, realism, hyper-realism, expressionism, cartooning, self-portrait, manga/anime, architecture and more.
