Art Camp at Clapping Hands Farm! FALL 2019 & SPRING 2020
Art Camp for Homeschoolers at Clapping Hands Farm in Pittsboro runs from 9-3:30 on TUESDAYS through the Fall-Winter-Spring. Age range recommendations vary somewhat session by session. in the 2019-2020 session our campers were mostly ages 10-16 with a few 8, 9 and 17 year olds mixed in. This year I am want to accommodate ages 8 and 9 for at least some of the sessions. Campers older than 16 or 17 normally welcome if they are interested in the session topics. We also need older teens and adult volunteers as COUNSELORS for all our sessions. Younger campers considered on a case by case basis.
We have four sessions planned for the 2019-2020 season. Each session runs 6-8 weeks with different teachers and themes. Each session will feature one or more morning workshops; when there is more than one morning session campers will choose ONE of these workshops to focus on in the mornings. Then, after lunch, we’ll have "Anything Goes" an array of games, art activities and workshops to choose from.
Our pricing includes DISCOUNTS for signing up EARLY ($25 off each session) and for signing up for the whole SEMESTER rather than one session at a time ($25 off each session).
