Under the direction and instruction of Mrs. Monica Otero, Art Camp is a three-week program during the month of July for ages 6-12. Focusing on Creativity, Imagination and Ingenuity, Art Camp offers children a unique opportunity to acquire or improve artistic skills, learn new techniques, explore different media and get inspired by famous artists. All, while having fun! Surrounded by the beauty of the Watchung Mountains, students appreciate both Art and Nature as they draw and paint outdoor scenes and have picnic lunches at Best Lake. Free T-Shirt for all campers.
