Art Beast Summer Camps
ALL K STREET CAMPS ARE FULL. SEE BELOW FOR OUR NEW BELL STREET CAMPS. MOST STILL HAVE SPOTS AVAILABLE
Art Beast camps are designed for children 4 to 7 years old. We create a space that honors children by offering activities and environments suited to their age range. No trying to keep up with the 10 year olds at this camp! Each session fills at 16 children and is led by two teachers, promising a group that can grow close. The camps offer a blend of structured arts exploration in the classroom and free play within the building, always under close supervision by the camp teachers.
Our camps are about exploring art and self-expression. Children dig into an array of mediums and arts in their own way. No matter the theme, we promise arts integration with movement, song, story, and art. After or before camp each day, you can stay and play at Art Beast with your child as long as you’d like.
And, as always, when you choose Art Beast, your money supports Waking the Village’s communities for young, homeless parents and their children at Tubman House and Audre’s Emporium of New Tomorrows. In 2016, Art Beast generated over $50,000 to sustain Tubman’s child development program for children experiencing homelessness.

Camp Beast-Summer Camps from Art Beast on Bell Street (Elementary Age)
WHAT'S BELL STREET?
Art Beast will be holding full day camps at 1949 Bell Street this Summer. The site occupies nearly an acre of land, allowing for LOTS of outdoor play and community games. Indoor and outdoor spaces are set up with open studio space, building stations, and dramatic play areas. Three goats live on site. Gardens, tree, and dirt trails invite free play and exploration. This site allows us to greatly expand our outside play offerings- a long time dream. It also allows the children attending the camp more space to explore so that a full day can offer plenty of room.
Session Times: 9 am to 5 pm. The camp day will offer both directed activities and free play.
Pricing: $250 a week. Additional siblings enrolled the same week receive a 15% discount. $75 non-refundable deposit to reserve a space.
Please Bring: Lunch, snack, and a bottle of water. Wear clothes that can get messy!
To Register: Complete the online form or call the studio.
BELL STREET SESSIONS 2018
Though the themes repeat offerings from the K Street sessions, activities will be redesigned to offer more outdoor activities and crafts suited to an older age range.
JULY 9TH TO 13TH JUNGLE SAFARI WITH NANCY
Spend the week building and exploring our very own rainforest! Your child will have a chance to learn about plants, animals, and the ecology of a jungle environment. Campers will help build make their own adventurer’s outfit, terrariums, and become jungle animals as we decorate the classroom throughout the week.
JULY 16TH-20TH GARDEN GNOMES AND FAIRY HOMES WITH SONYA
Come and join us as we explore the nature all around us! Be prepared to get your clothes dirty and those thumbs green as we approach nature with a whimsical perspective and an artist’s mindset. Children will create take-home gardens, fairy houses, garden stones, and a framed, nature watercolor painting. Join us in this magical artistic exploration of art and garden-appreciation to take in the greenery around us!
JULY 23RD-27TH MUSIC AROUND THE WORLD WITH ARIANA
Let's take a trip around the world as we explore songs, dances, stories and art! Each day of camp will be an opportunity for campers to learn about a different region including Latin America, Asia, the Caribbean, the Pacific Islands, and coming back home! Campers will have many opportunities to sing freely, dance, read stories, imaginative play, and experience process-art activities. We will also have a station for learning basic music concepts such as rhythm and pitch. No previous music experience necessary.
AUGUST 6TH - 10TH SUPERHERO ACADEMY WITH ANDREW
Welcome to the most fun & advanced superhero academy ever! New recruits are invited to come and train with the most intelligent and skilled superheroes in the world. As a part of this elite program, we will create our own superhero names, assemble our own armor (masks, super hero cuffs, shields and capes) using advanced technology, make radioactive slime and create long lasting friendships. By the end of the training we will discover what it takes to become not just a superhero, but someone who can make a difference.
AUGUST 13TH-17TH OCEAN COMMOTION WITH NANCY
Campers will maneuver the seven seas above and below while we learn about creatures in the deep and the ecosystem that the ocean has to offer. From jellyfish and axolotls to water games and ice excavation, we will submerge ourselves into cool textures and shape-shifting colors with crafts your children can take home each day.
