Camp Activities:

Progressive Art rotates camp activities every 5 years. And of course, we always update and add new activities to our camps. Unlike other camps that use stock photos or general descriptions of painting or drawing, we want students (and parents) to know what we will actually be doing in camp. So in the months before the camp, we are testing products, designing and writing lesson plans, preparing slideshows and videos to be used at camp, training our volunteers and making the samples. Phew!


A reminder to other art programs that our class activities are original and copyrighted 2019 Progressive Art for Progressive Kids.


We will post more photos as the samples are completed! Thank you for your patience!

What will we do? 

Our focus this year will be on 3D art - great for any students preparing a portfolio for high school! This year we will be making paper maiche sculptures, glass painting acrylic butterflies, adding decoupage to decorative plates, and creating an entire city -- out of cereal boxes! We will draw, paint, and sculpt everyday! This is not a general arts and crafts camp -- we use real art materials, real artist tools, learn real art techniques and terms from a real, professional artist, all in a real art gallery. Really!


Come and make some new friends - Join us for gallery visits, group art projects, games and our end of camp Art Show!

Paper Mache Sculptures: 

We will be using recycled materials and cardboard armatures to create paper mache dinosaur sculptures. Each day of camp will be a different stage of the sculpture process.

Acrylic Butterflies:

Students will use transparent glass paints to paint acrylic butterflies that can be attached to a window to let the light come through like a stain glass window!

Decoupage Decorative Plates:

Sticking with our use of recycled materials, students will use watercolour 'stained' papers and printed napkins to create decorative decoupage plates, edged in gold. 

Cereal Box City:

Students will be creating their own house or building using an up-cycled cereal box. Their building will be combined with that of their fellow campers to create a city of papercrafted boxes. They will use printed papers, paint and regular markers, and die cutting machines to cut out the pieces they need.
