Open Window Studio Summer Art Camp

Our camp schedule for summer 2024 will be up soon! Stay tuned!!

Our goal at Open Window Studio is to provide a supportive community where we all have the freedom to explore and grow creatively.

We offer week-long summer art and clay camps for ages 5-16 in a creative, idyllic setting.

Our summer art camp gives campers the time, space and confidence to explore their ideas.  Campers of all ages become part of a group of artists exploring, experimenting and creating together.

Page Zekonis is a local artist who founded Open Window Studio in 2003 to offer classes to children and adults of all ages and abilities.  Page encourages the creative exploration of ideas and materials in an atmosphere that is fun, respectful, and full of surprises. She is especially interested in working with middle and high school students and has developed an art program for this age group which includes  Guided Open Studio classes and week-long art excursions to Washington, DC/Baltimore and Santa Fe, NM.

Jill Ryerson, clay teacher has had her hands in clay and her head in education for most of her adult life.

Her passion for clay began in elementary school when she couldn’t wait for the art teacher to start the next clay project.  This passion grew as the teenaged-Jill experienced wheel-throwing for the first time.  Once she was hooked, Jill’s study of clay progressed through college and beyond.

Chloe Brasket, lead teacher is currently a chemistry student at Northeastern University in Boston who loves bringing together science, art, and teaching. She brings with her an appreciation for the joy of creating, a sensitivity and playfulness with children. Originally from Boulder, Chloe began her journey with Open Window Studio in 2007 as an enthusiastic first grader.  The summer of 2023 will be her seventh year working at the camp and her third year teaching. In her spare time she loves hiking, biking, and existing in nature.
Rebecca Flax, lead teacher has been with Open Window Studio for many years. She began spending summers with us as an enthusiastic camper and later as a high school mentor. For the past two summers she was a camp assistant, helping run groups and working one-on-one with campers of all ages.  She has a delightful way with children – playful, supportive and encouraging.  Rebecca is currently a college student at Bryn Mar University in Pennsylvania.

She has experience in most mediums, and has taken multiple classes in pottery and sculpture. You can find her art here.

Our space

We are located on a small family farm located between Boulder and Longmont.  It is a magical place surrounded by cottonwood and willow trees, open fields, a lavender garden, an old barn, chickens, several friendly dogs and two horses – plenty of inspiration and space for creative ideas to bloom!

Our indoor space includes a ceramic studio and a painting/mixed media studio with large garage doors that are open to the outdoors. And, of course, the entire outdoors is our studio!
