It's bring your skeleton…to life! Cute or scary? Beautiful or bizarre? What will it do? On the final day, you will introduce YOUR creation to the WORLD. Here’s your chance to bring to life your creature with the one and only papier-mâché artist Erin Robertson.

Information about the camps:

For either camp, you will learn how to make a wire armature & cover it with papier-mâché. Each morning & afternoon, a couple of hours will be spent on art then during breaks you’ll go to the wading pool, playground or pizza oven. Over the 5 days, you will draw, paint and collage to complete your sculpture / wearable creations. On Friday you’ll invite your parents to see an outdoor display of your creations.
