A full day of artistic adventures await! Plug in with us virtually and unleash your creativity using a variety of tools and materials, while meeting new friends in a fun and encouraging environment. Join us from the comfort of your home and stay engaged all day creating art and playing games, complete with several “recesses” throughout the day. Virtual campers will draw, paint, and sketch using a variety of techniques. Special guest, local author and theatre artist Jenna Shamata will lead campers through a series of silly and interactive drama activities to get you up on their feet and moving around, based on her book, The Accidental Mime. Parental guidance is welcome, but not required.
