Spring Break Art Camp at Home provides a welcoming camp experience. Agnes art educator Emebet Belete guides campers through short creative bursts in both the morning and  afternoon. New and exciting activities are planned using the technique of collage and other mixed media processes, using safe and non-toxic supplies provided in the Agnes Art Kit. Online field trips to view Agnes artworks inspire creativity and imagination. Campers finish the week with a virtual art exhibition to celebrate their artistic exploration.

Each day is led by two experienced facilitators and the camp size is kept small with a maximum of 14 campers. Parental guidance is welcome, but not required.

Art supplies are included in the cost of the camp and kits are available for pickup 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 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.
