There's every chance to unleash your imagination in our 20 art studios inspired by our 22 artists in residence. Campers learn to work with their hands and minds gaining appreciation of form and the value of artistic creation. You can create in new art forms like digital film and multimedia design or explore more traditional forms like painting and sculpture. Our unique scheduling means you can stay as long as you wish pursuing your arts ideas. We even have special evening classes for those who want to further study and develop ideas.
