ART PARTY CAMP at Clapping Hands Farm!
May 29 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until May 29, 2020
Art Party is a family camp for parents and young children to enjoy together. Each day the Clapping Hands team sets out a spectacular array of visual art explorations, and each day a different Guest Artist shares music and dance experiences for all-around fun time. At our ART PARTY, come ready to: finger paint; make colorful slime; play in shaving cream; draw with pastels, colored chalk, and other mediums; learn to embroider on burlap or sew your own stuffed animal; make your own toys; and so much more! Much of the day will be for adults and children to enjoy together. Each afternoon we offer a workshop with our guest artists specifically for the creative exploration and rejuvenation of PARENTS while other artists and camp counselors work with the CHILDREN. Singing games provide a lively morning circle and our day ends with a closing circle and a story told by Louise.
We invite children ages 5–8 to come with their parents OR to come on their own, as “bridge campers.” With its shorter camp day and lots of counselor attention, Art Party can “bridge” these young campers to being ready for our full day “big kid” camps. All the Art Party activities are the razzle dazzle of this joyful week, while a small group of “buddies” and a special counselor provide a nurturing center. The Bridge Camp option is available for the full week only. Children 4 and under must come with a parent or another special adult in their life, and many parents of the 5 and up crowd WANT to keep coming and do!
We at the Chatham Arts Council are delighted to provide the only online calendar exclusively dedicated to Chatham County arts events–performing, literary, and visual arts. Get out there and get inspired!
