Spend your summer making art with Tumbleweeds. Camp will be hosted in a beautiful studio located inside Greenpoint’s wellness center- Awakening NY, located right down the block from the McCarren Park Playground.

Each day kids will work on structured art projects, as well as have free art time to draw and paint. There will also be snack time, lunchtime and outdoor playtime at the McCarren Park Playground (weather permitting). Painting, sculpture, printmaking, fiber arts and recycled art are just some examples of what the kids will be getting their hands on!

Each week of camp we will also be exploring many themes such as- artists and their styles, early decades of art, art for fun as well as different artistic theories and techniques.
