The San Mateo County Health Office has not changed its guidance on “Social Bubbles.” This means that we are still going to have 2 Week Summer Camp Sessions. This is to ensure that we maintain “Stable Groups” of campers for the safety of them and their families. We highly encourage our families to continue to help stop the spread of COVID-19 by practicing social distancing and following quarantine guidelines.
We take temperatures, wear masks in the classroom, and wipe down all materials. We have replaced serve-yourself popcorn for packaged snacks and have good ventilation. COVID seems to be a built-in course in creative adaptability.
Please practice social distancing and quarantine protocols before attending camp. If you experience any symptoms of Covid-19 within 14 days prior to attending, please do not come to the art school. If you have received a negative test result after experiencing symptoms within that time period, we will request to see those results when you arrive.
If you have questions please call 650-713-0751.
This is the best way for you to help keep our community members safe and for us stay open this summer.

Week 1 & 2: Stop Motion Animation
June 21 – 24 & June 28 – July 1
Back by popular demand! We will focus on the art of storytelling through a classic practical method. We will explore the techniques used by animators like Tim Burton to create short films of our sculpted characters. This was an extremely popular camp last year, so we decided to make it a double. This camp has two dedicated weeks to learning an awesome storytelling method.
Week 1: Great Artists
July 5 – 8
Explore 50 of the greatest Artists ever from Art Cards we have here at the Art School. Each morning we challenge students with creative short projects inspired by famous Artists. In the afternoon, students choose a favorite artist from the cards and use the ideas of that Artist to create their own piece of art, not by copying but by riffing off their ideas! Should be a really fun camp!
Week 2: Drawing and Painting Fantasy Animals
July 12 -15
Did someone say Dragons?!? This camp lets students choose their favorite mythical mystical animals and teaches them techniques for eyes, fur, scales feathers and insect parts. The mediums are graphite, pen and ink, printmaking and paint. For fun we will have an option for 3D projects also! Very Fun Summer Projects!
Week 1: Creative Zines, Publications, Comic Books and Making Sculptures with Books
July 19 – 22
This camp teaches the basics of Creative DIY Publications while it teaches layout, construction, copy art and easy binding. In addition we get to play with non-booklet formats like maps, pocket books and pop-ups. 3D students make sculptures using folding, cutting, gluing and carving books!
Week 2: Board Game Design
July 26 – 29
What makes a good board game? Is it the pieces? The board? The game mechanics? This camp teaches the basic of game theory. Using our skills as artists we will sculpt, draw, and paint our game pieces and boards to create fun new tabletop board games.
Week 1: The Ultimate Sculpture Camp
Aug 2 – 5
This camp is all about 3D using Hot Glue and Model Magic! These are the most favorited mediums to create with here at the art school. We thought that we could end the summer with a mini summer camp session, as this is the only one-week camp offered this summer. This camp teaches students how to use hot glue guns to create some really wacky sculptures. In this camp we will learn about 3D sculptures and how we can creatively use space in the third dimension!
