Summer Camp

Can you believe we are already thinking of Summer? It’s the end of February and since we had such a mild winter, I feel like it should be November! I am offering 3 different types of camps again this year. To sign up for a camp, please call 910-399-1708 or email minimonets@gmail.com. Camp locations will be in my home off North College, or at Cape Fear Academy. Tuition will include all materials, supplies, displays, and a snack.

Mini Monets: Fine Artists Camp Session 1

Week of June 19- June 23.

For ages 3 – 8

N. College: 9:30 – 11:30 am, $145

Cape Fear Academy: 1:00 – 3:00 pm, $160

Art projects will be in 2 and 3 dimension. We will be exploring dry media (conte, pastels, charcoal), wet media (watercolors, tempera) and sculpture in modeling clay, air dry clay, and paper mache. This camp is perfect for  young artists who are looking to explore new mediums and nurture their creativity through guided and self-directed projects. Students will use their imagination and artistic talents to create individual pieces of art. Just as during the school year, projects will be a blend of the visual arts with literature, math, and science.

An art camp focusing on all things 3 dimensional. We will work with several different types of clay, paper mache, and sculpting wire to create unique pieces of pottery and sculpture. We will learn about the history of pottery in different cultures and explore sculpting techniques while having a great time getting messy! Students will use their imagination and artistic talents to create individual pieces of art. Just as during the school year, projects will be a blend of the visual arts with literature, math, and science.

Mini Monets: Illustration Class

If you find yourself constantly doodling far off places and creating exciting new super heroes, this is the camp for you. This camp will introduce the foundations for character design, layout, story boards, and illustration. These projects are designed to take you to the next level as an illustrator, preparing you for a career in illustration, comic books or graphic novels, and video game design.

  1. where are the summer camps located? I am interested in a camp for my 9 year old art-loving daughter.

  2. Will your summer camps be located near the Monkey Junction area of Wilmington this year?

  3. I’m interested in a week of your summer camp, “Blast from the Past”, for my 7 year old son.
    Where are you located?
    I checked the entire site and couldn’t find an address.
    Thanks,
    Laura

  4. We are interested in the Mini Monets Summer Art Camp for 3-8 year olds at the Friends School location. Could you inform me of the cost of the camp for the week of 7/25-7/29. Thank you.

  5. please send cost info for mini monet camp at surf city!! Thanks.

  6. I am interested in the summer camp at Surf City. I see that the cost is $60. Is this for 1 week? I am also interested in possibly doing a camp at the clubhouse in our neighborhood, if you can provide what the cost for that would be and how many children you would need to participate.
    thanks!

  7. Are the three sessions of Summer Camp in Surf City identical in content? or is each session learning something new?

    • Hi Deed,

      Each session/month will be a different set of projects and we will learn about different artists. Nothing will be repeated and children can attend each session.

      Thanks!

      Jennie

      • Thank you!
        How do we register for the classes?
        Also, I am trying to decide between the July and August classes, Can you tell me more about those specific classes and their content?

        I will email you the registration form. Each month, I will have a different set of projects for the kids to create. Some will be teacher guided and some are self directed. I introduce different artists but I do not have specific themes for the months. For the younger classes, we will have projects in watercolors, mixed media, tempera, and clay. The older classes focus on how art will translate into careers in an art field. We will look at successful graphic design elements, effective character design, layout and animation.

      • Please do email me a registration form for the August class at Surf City. Thanks!

  8. How do I sign my child up and what is the cost? I have a 14 year old and am interested in the June sessions at the Community Arts Building. Thank you.

  9. I am interested in the camp at FSOW for ages 3-8 for my son. He is 6 years old and will be 7 on July 8th. What is the cost for each week at FSOW and are there any spaces available for the June 20 -24? If available, how do you sign up?
    Thank you.
    Penny

  10. Are there any discounts for 3 or more children?

  11. Hi jennie,

    I was inetersted in summer camp again this summer for my daughter Ella. Are the dates listed above for 2012? How do we sign up?

    thanks

  12. Hello, I am confused by the dates for summer camp. Is it only for an hour? Do you have a day or half day program?
    Thanks,
    Heather Brosnan

    • Hello Heather,

      Yes, the camps are an hr long this year. My school year classes run 30 – 45 minutes so I’m trying something new with having art projects that last an hour. Depending how this year goes, next year I may offer 1.5 – 2 hr classes daily. Please email me if you are interested in signing up for Cape Fear Academy, Carolina Beach, or Ogden. Thanks for your interest in Mini Monets Summer Camp.

  13. I am interested in your summer camp classes for my very creative 8 1/2 yr old. Can you please tell me prices of your illustration and sculpting camps? Thanks!
