Summer Camps 2017


Our summer camps are a chance for kids to immerse themselves in the world of art. Every Monday we create with clay so that it can be dried and fired in our kiln, the rest of the week we explore a variety of mediums within that week's theme.

Scroll down for camp availability, it is listed below the camp descriptions.
If your chosen week is full and you wish to be placed on a waiting list, please e-mail us at info@freehandart.ca
