A great way to kick start the summer! This opening week will explore a few different types of mediums but we will only be open half days this week. A great way to ease the younger campers into summer as these days are nice and quiet while the big campers are still in school.
June 15 - 19
Half Day Only
Another week to explore a little of everything. From ceramics to wooden pallets and painting on canvas! There is something for everyone. Don't forget to dress for a mess during this week as we will be sure to be getting a lot of paint everywhere!
A Little Of Everything
June 22 - 26
We all adore wildlife here at The Pig and want to share some of our favorite animal images with the campers. From Baby Koalas to bears and elephants, this week is going to wild! Wednesday is the start of an elephant sculpture and will take into Thursday to complete. Please let a staff member know if you can only attend one of those days so that we can offer a ceramic/ wooden project in it's place. A wonderful week for animal lovers.
June 29 - 3
Oceans - Over & Under
July 6 - 10
What a fun this week will be. We will be exploring the depths of the ocean and learning about what is under the ocean, and what can float on it! From dolphin images, to charcoal shells and pointillism starfish - campers will not only create some beautiful images but also learn a lot about the world we live in.
A week of magical unicorn art. From paintings to slime and ceramics — there is something fun each day. For all the parents about to ask "Will there be boy options?" the answer is YES! We have alternate projects each day, but we often find that boys love mystical animals too. Slime will be made and sent home in special jars and campers will be experimenting with chalk art too!
Unicorn & Pegasus Magic
July 13 - 17
From many of you, this is a favorite week. We study some of the master artists of the world and learn their techniques and styles. From a Dale Chihuly inspired sculpture and splatter art worthy of Jackson Pollock. Projects will vary in the afternoon based on the artist of the day. So no matter if you are a half day camper or full day, you will not miss out on these wonderful projects!
Famous Artists & Places
July 20 - 24
A week to design carriages, castles wands and wishes. Each camper will also create self portraits as a prince or princess. This camp week is geared towards both girls and boys. Each day there will be different projects in the afternoon. This is a great creative week for fairytale lovers.

Have you heard that our Shelton has a licensed cafe now? This week we will be observing, drawing and painting some really yummy treats from local bakeries and even from our selection.

Any food that we have out to observe will be nut free!

Each day we will focus on a different animal or part of the rainforest. We'll discuss why we need rainforests and where they can be found. Using watercolors, acrylic, oil pastels, tempera and pencil, your child will explore the rainforest and learn to create some really spectacular pieces of art. Some of these pieces will look amazing framed — Ask us how!

Summer camp purchases, MUST be used by the end of the summer. Classes cannot be used towards anything other than what they are purchased for. Example, you cannot apply summer camps towards art lessons or gifts. One of our main reasons for not offering refunds is: We are a small business! We are an art business. Art supplies are ordered in advance for every student. We train and staff our camps, and invest a lot of money into being licensed, having a Dr on call should we need one and making sure every child has the best possible camp experience. Thank you for your understanding.
