Spring Break Camp Sessions are ready for sign ups!
March 24th through the 28th is spring break in Florence and we will be holding camps for all ages.

Students are welcome to bring sack lunches and snacks for the break times if they are staying between sessions. All students should arrive in clothes that can get paint on them and with a water bottle. Session prices include all materials for up to 10 hours. Please check our past pages for examples of activities we have done before, for camps. Each session costs $50. You will get your moneys worth! Around $5 an hour with materials included!

Session #1 Puppet Class 8:30-10:30am for five days.- We will be making a variety of puppets, starting from simple paper bag, plate, and stick puppets on day one and advancing, glove, sock, paper clay, and eventually to working marionettes on Thursday and Friday.

Session #2 Fairy Houses- 11-1pm Monday thru Friday. We will be making fairy doll houses out of paper clay and wood on the two days, and then working on decorating, making miniature furniture, accessories and dolls the rest of the week. 

Session# 3-Painting 2-4pm for five days. Co teachers Kassy and Karylynn Keppol did not want to be held back in this class, you will be doing all kinds of painting projects from tole painted pieces to acrylics and watercolor. We will be mimicking our favorite artists and showing off some of our favorite tricks. 

Session #4 Extreme Birdhouse Building 4:30-6- Karylynn threw this title at Kassy as a joke and then we started thinking about it. It is way too much fun!  We can make birdhouses of every shape and kind. From driftwood, peanut butter, tole painted wood, gourds,to recycled objects this will be an amazing class. March is the perfect time to think about feeding the birds. Fill your back yard, porch, or window with your homemade creations.Since we started talking about it our only problem is going to be limiting it to five days!
