The Avenue Road Arts School Presents
March Break 2017:
A Whimsical Woodland Integrated Arts Camp



Camps for 3 Years - Grade 3

This March Break, you will embark on a creative discovery and learn all about the critters, creatures, flora and magical mysteries of our forests and woodlands. Join the Avenue Road Arts School and explore through a fun, unique and whimsical approach. Children will draw, paint and sculpt, using a number of techniques and materials, including natural and recycled objects, all while creating a variety of inspirational art works that represent the camper's very own style. To explore the theme further, drama and music activities will be utilized and campers will be encouraged to participate in interpreting their art through different forms and media.

Choose from a half-day camp, half-day camp with lunch supervision or full-day camp with lunch supervision. Materials and daily snacks are included.
Please note that lunch supervision does not include food. Campers provide their own lunch (no nut products please!). Children attending camp must be toilet trained.

*HST will be added to all fees
