Why Choose Summer Art Camp?
Does your child have an interest in art? Does your child enjoy doodling, drawing, coloring, and painting in their free time? Does your child wish they had an outlet to explore and develop their personal creativity? Does your child want to learn how to use a variety of art mediums, concepts, and techniques?

If you answered “yes” to any or all of these questions, then we have the solution for you!

As a professional artist who has taught thousands of students over the years, there is nothing more fulfilling for Sarah than seeing children tap into their creativity and flourish as artists. Summer Art Camp was created to help children grow in their individual confidence and exceed their own expectations as artists while creating things they never imagined they could.

What Will My Child Learn & Create?
Your child will learn a variety of beginner and intermediate art techniques and processes, including:

Watercolor Painting – wet on wet, controlled wash, and drybrush techniques
Drawing – gesture line, contour line, shading, proportions
Acrylic Painting – mixing primary, secondary, and tertiary colors, brushstroke exploration
Chalk Pastels – blending, analagous color schemes
Tie-Dye T-Shirts – folding and rolling with rubber bands to create tie-dye designs

Meet Your Art Teacher
Hi there! My name is Sarah Albert and I have had the privilege to teach art to thousands of students over the past 15 years within G6nRi3IyQ4eedyIsXdsm_Headshotthe public school setting, at the Indianapolis Art Center, and as founder of The Dwelling Place Art Studio. I have a Master’s Degree in Art Education, and I enjoy oil painting & drawing as a professional artist in my free time. I am blessed to be a wife and mommy to two little ones, with another baby due in July. My passion is helping students explore the world of art around them, while awakening the artist inside each of them! I look forward to working with your student artist at Summer Art Camp!
