Unfortunately we had to cancel our camps this summer due to Covid-19. We hope to see you this fall for art programming.


July 27, 2020 – July 31, 2020
1:30pm – 4:30pm
Monday through Friday


This camp is for all young artists who are interested in learning more about drawing the human face and proportions in general. We will focus on breaking down the features on the face, and we will demonstrate the best practices for rendering and shading to achieve volume. We will be using both graphite, charcoal and pastels to create our studies and finished drawings. If we have enough time, we might be able to add a pet portrait to the week’s agenda. Campers will gain useful drawing skills and have exposure to different materials.


*The course materials are included in the price of the class.

Pricing and Payment

We offer early bird pricing until April 1st. After April 1, there is a 10% discount (off the full price of the second camp) for campers who register for more than one camp.

We accept payment for summer camp registration on our website, in the studio, or by mailing a check after having registered your camper over the phone. Please note that payment in full is required to guarantee your seat.  Please be aware that your reservation is NOT confirmed until full payment is received.

First Day of Camp – Medical Information

ALL students must be accompanied by a guardian on the first day of camp for initial check-in.  We will check-in campers, accept outstanding payments, review pick-up policies and address any medical concerns.

Artissima Studio must be made aware of all pertinent medical concerns and/or allergies for the safety of the campers. This information will be kept confidential.

Break & Snack

There will be a short break during each day at camp. Campers may bring light snacks to eat during the break; no snacks will be provided.  Water bottles are recommended even thought we have water at the studio for the students. Campers will not be permitted to leave the premise to obtain food. Please advise Artissima in advance of a severe nut allergy so that we can alert the families to prohibit snack foods containing nuts. Please also make your child aware if he or she is bringing food containing nuts.

Dress for a Mess

We provide aprons for the students, but it is hard to prevent all messes as the kids excitedly dive into the materials.

We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.
