Activities: This camp will start you on a journey to one of the most challenging painting mediums. We will make it fun and easy to explore the many interesting watercolor painting techniques, and everyone will be able to create landscapes like sunsets, snow mountains, flower fields and underwater scenes, etc. If weather permits, we will spend sometime painting outside at the beautiful studio garden! Returning campers will be challenged with new painting techniques and subjects.
