ART SCHOOL CURRICULUM

Summer Art Camps, 2022

Each camp session is designed to give artists-in-training insight into different aspects of art. The projects encourage students to follow their creative desires while learning necessary skills. There are no set age groups, allowing for teens, pre-teens and even First graders to share their ideas, to inspire one another, and as a result, create a nurturing artistic environment.

OUR COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

SUMMER 2022 UPDATE

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.

Balance of tuition can be paid in total ($500) or $250 at the start of each week. Due to the San Mateo County Covid Health Order, we are unable to fill a space if a student does not attend the entire session. Your commitment to the full two week camp is appreciated. 

Camp Info and Schedule

All of our camps are Tuesday through Friday.

San Mateo County Health Order has since been revised. We are continuing our summer programs with sessions, but we have shortened our session length to two-week sessions. We are still operating on a small class size capacity to limit student exposure to COVID-19. Please do not sign up for a camp and fail to attend.  We are not able to replace a no-show with another student.  Thank you so much for understanding and supporting us right now.  Our goal is to just survive this in belief of a better day ahead.

Refund Policy: Please choose carefully; deposits and tuition are non-refundable and absences are not replaceable. In the event the protocol mandate goes back to Stage 1 sheltering in place, we will give everyone a full credit to be used for any future art classes or camps here at Fly on the Wall Art School with no expiration date.

    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.

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!
