For the Parent/Guardian:
This program lots of fun! It is also designed to support and address the Alberta Education Programs Study with connections to various subjects including Fine Arts, English Language Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. Our youth art camps strive to make specific integrated study connections to help the individual develop.

For the Camp Goers:
These day camps are a great chance to brush up on skills where you are rusty and gain new skills that you don’t have! Each camp includes a field trip where camp goers will practice sketching skills and drawings on site. A professional local artist from the arts community in Edmonton will be invited to teach a workshop. These workshops will give you insight into a professionals techniques in a local context. The camps will cover mediums such as silkscreening, clay sculpture, acrylic paint, and much more. You will also connect with like-minded people you age!
 
Camp fee: $175 includes all materials. Students are advised to dress prepared to make a mess! Class sizes are limited to ensure quality instruction, so please call or email to reserve your spot today. Camps run 9:30 am – 3:30 pm, early drop off and late pick-up is available upon request.

We hope to see you at the FLIGHT and Stark opening receptions on June 19th!


 
This month Harcourt House would like to welcome the first of our two summer students that will be working with us over the next several months: Nicolette Harrison

Hello everyone! This is Nicolette Harrison, the new summer student who you will be seeing throughout the art centre (although mostly in the annex) organizing, planning and teaching the youth summer camps! 

The camps run from July 7 th to August 15 th for ages 7-11 and 12-16. There will be lots of fun painting, drawing, printmaking, clay and sculpture classes. If you know any youth that would be interested, please let me know as soon as possible as class sizes are limited to 10 per camp. 

And just a bit about me: I am a glass artist who has been teaching children art for the past four years with the City of Calgary; and have been the Family Programs Coordinator at the Works for the past two years. 


Feel free to contact me if you have any questions at harcourtcamps@shaw.ca 

I look forward to meeting you!
