Cordovan Art Camps: More Info
 

  1. When you arrive at art camp, sign in at the front desk to find out your teacher’s name and studio classroom.
  2. At the end of camp each day, parents will go to the studio classroom to sign out their artists.
  3. If your artist is enrolled in Extended Care they will wait in the lobby where they can draw, socialize, and hang out with other artists.
  4. Books, phones, electronic devices, and other personal items may be used before and after camp, but should be put away once camp begins. Cordovan is not responsible for any lost or damaged personal items, so bring at your own risk.
  5. If enrolled in a full day of camp be sure to send your artist with lunch, water bottle, and two snacks! Lunch takes places 12:00-1:00pm and snack break is taken during the middle of each 3 hour camp block.
  6. Morning Camps are 9:00am to 12:00pm. Afternoon Camps are 1:00pm to 4:00pm. Be sure to drop your artist off and pick them up on time! Before and after extended care is available.
  7. Thumbnail artwork shown next to each camp description below is a representation of the theme of the camp, but not necessarily a project that will be created during camp.
  8. Artists will be equally divided between the studio classrooms according to their age. This allows our students to get the best individual care from our teachers.
