Art Camp

3 to 7 years

Make, build, learn and play with us over the holidays

During school holidays and closures, Big and Tiny provides unforgettable art camps for children ages 3 to 7 years old. Join any of the educational programs with our daily or weekly passes. This program is currently offered upon availability Monday to Friday. Due to limited capacity and high demand, reservations are required.

A unique and creative approach to children's art

With weekly themes focused on select artistic disciplines – 2D and 3D art, music and recycling art – each camper’s experience is guaranteed to be unique. Campers will grow and express themselves through daily activities including creative movement, music, storytelling, painting, drawing, sculpting, acting and a wide variety of other art pursuits.

Camp Blueprint

Each week, your Camper-Artists will work on a BIG collaborative project that they will present at the end of the week. TINY individualized activities and projects worked on throughout the week will come together on Fridays, culminating in the exhibition/presentation of the BIG group project. Campers will be split into groups every week based on age. 

9.00 – 9.30

Intention – Arrival

Discuss the plan of the day, goals and the BIG project. A short warm-up activity

(could be anything from a mindfulness exercise to a dance party).  

 

9.30 – 10.30

Tiny Activity 1

Break into age groups for the first structured art-making session of the day.  This activity connects directly to the BIG project.  For example, the week we are making a movie, we would set up a photo scavenger hunt for the campers to work together and familiarize themselves with using a camera while getting to know one another and moving around.

 

10.30 – 11.30

Tiny Eat + Play

Come together for a snack outdoors 

 

11.30 – 12.30

Tiny Activity 2

Back into smaller groups for the second structured art-making session of the day. This activity connects directly to the BIG project.  For example, the week we are putting on a theatrical performance, we would have a songwriting workshop where the campers work together to create an original song for their play.   

 

12.30 – 1.00
