Full Week Simmer Program at Maggiolly's

FULL WEEK ART CAMPS FOR KIDS AGES 9 – 14

Week One: Monday, July 24 – Friday July 28, 2017.
Week Two: Monday, August 14 – Friday August 18, 2017.
Full Days: 10:00am – 4:00pm
Artist/Instructor: Ricky Schade, Emilia Perri and special guest instructors

This is a marvelous opportunity to have your child participate in a full week of art creation in a professional art studio setting located in downtown Orangeville. This will be a highly productive week as we encourage kids to create a variety of art work including learning drawing skills; painting with watercolours and acrylics; mixed media art creation and sculpture using plaster gauze.

The beauty of this week long program is that it allows students to start a variety of projects on one day and continue to work on them the following days, moving from one to the other. This helps students understand the development of ideas from one day to another and helps them to focus on the process of art making instead of just the art product which is produced. Your child will be inspired to work creatively while they explore a variety of art concepts, taking pride in their accomplishments by the end of the week. These full week summer art camps will allow your child to feel what the artist feels, going into the studio for a prolonged length of time and emerging with work that is truly a joyous surprise.

The full week programs will be facilitated by artist/instructors Emilia Perri and Ricky Schaede and during the week, surprise guest artists will be brought in to work with the students on particular types of projects, such as anime drawing! For these weeks we require that your creative child who is 9 to 14 years old is keen to explore and produce art work in a relaxed and fun environment where they will enjoy the process of art making. If your child loves to make art, they belong here at Maggiolly's this summer.


Cost: $299.00 (plus hst) per week. Includes all art materials. Bring your own lunch.
