Each week explores the natural world through art making, providing an enriching art camp experience that is accessible for any child in the Methow Valley regardless of economic status.

The 2018 camp theme is “Art in the Wild” with art explorations focused on the natural world in the Methow Valley, such as, geology, birds and wildlife, river ecology, and foraging for wild foods. Local teaching artists and environmental educators will guide students through a curriculum using repurposed and upcycled resources and materials found in nature reinforcing creativity and resourcefulness while building social skills and creative life skills thru hands-on art education combined with environmental education.

Art Camp for Everyone is a subsidized program offered to Methow Valley youth to provide quality summer art education regardless of economic status. Please consider a donation to support this vital resource for our local families.
