Open Window Studio

Summer Art & Clay Camp 

Celebrate summer at Open Window Studio! 

A day at camp:
Our camp days are designed to give campers creative time, social time and quiet time. Mornings begin with a community circle where, depending on the day, we share ideas, brainstorm, draw in our sketchbooks, read stories, play games or just quietly wake up our creative selves. Our full day camps have morning and afternoon studio sessions with an hour long lunch and free time in between. The day ends with a closing circle, plenty of watermelon and a chance to share all that we have worked on.  We divide each camp into smaller groups during studio time. As the week progresses and ideas and creations develop, our groups become more flexible to accommodate each camper’s creative needs.  On Friday afternoon we have an art show and a celebration for families and friends!


Discover the creative possibilities in handbuilding with clay. Smush, roll, poke and pull – from functional to sculptural, you will learn the skills that will allow your ideas to take shape.  Create monsters, mugs, flowers, bugs, vases, cups and bowls. Poke holes, make bumps, scratch lines, and add color. Spend a week surrounded by friends and watch as your lump of clay comes to life!

Paint and more!

Paint imaginary worlds, your favorite animals, abstract color creations. Paint large and small, on canvas and on paper. “Paint” with colored paper and collage, with colored sand and pastel. Create sculpture from natural and found materials, build fairy houses, make a book. Experiment, dream, doodle and let your creative ideas take shape. Spend a week surrounded by friends and explore your ideas in paint, mixed media and sculpture.
