Agnes Art Camp at Home

July 2021

MAKE. LOOK. LEARN. EXPLORE.
Superb summer program for children at home

For children, 6–12 years
Monday–Friday, 9–10:30 am and 1–2 pm
$150/week; $135/week member, Agnes Art Kit included

Agnes Art Camp at Home provides a welcoming camp experience over four weeks in July. Agnes art educators and assistants guide small groups of campers in process-based artmaking and interpretation, through short creative bursts in both the morning and  afternoon. New and exciting themed activities are planned for each week such as sculpture, drawing, painting and collage, all using safe and non-toxic supplies provided in the Agnes art kit. Online field trips to see the Agnes art collection will inspire creativity and learning. Campers finish the week with a virtual art exhibition to celebrate their artistic exploration.

Each day is led by three experienced facilitators and the camp size is kept small. Parental guidance is welcome, but not mandatory.

Art supplies are included in the cost of the camp and kits are available for pick-up the weekend before camp starts. They can also be shipped (within Ontario) for a fee. Art kits cannot be shipped for orders placed within one week of the start of the program. In order to participate in Agnes Art Camp at Home, campers will need access to a stable internet connection, a free Zoom account, a computer, laptop or tablet with a camera and microphone and a dedicated space to make art. Please email aeacpa@queensu.ca with any questions.

This program is supported by support from the City of Kingston Arts Fund through the Kingston Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario, and the Rita Friendly Kaufman Fund.
