Art Camps

Courtney offers local art camps during the summer! From creating a handmade picture book based on fairy tales to spending a week immersed in illustration, the camps are based on expanding creativity and encouraging your child to create bigger, brighter more unique work.

Classes for Summer 2018

Author/Illustrator Camp

In a week we will create a handcrafted, professionally bound and illustrated picture book where the children are encouraged to put a new spin on a classic story, fairytale or an original creation of their own! Individuality and creativity are our number one goals but along the way there will also be lessons in goal setting, cause & effect and sequential narration. The class can get very busy as we create an original story and illustrations in just a week (interspersed with magazine illustration assignments, writing games and lots of art creation). A solid base in writing and an openness in using watercolor is helpful! Class size is limited to allow each child individual instructor attention. Additional dates may be added if needed.

$325.00 per session, $25 material fee.

July 23-27, 9am - 3pm.

Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Alexandria VA
