When it comes to summer camp, many

parents want their kids to try something new and different, have fun with their

peers, but also keep their brains stimulated. Summer camp offers children

the unique opportunity to delve into interests and activities that can help

them grow and learn in new ways. 

“Camp can be an opportunity to make new

friends, learn new skills and discover hidden talents," Terry Groehler, executive director of Art Innovators,

said. “Children's enrichment activities can allow them to have an

entertaining summer camp experience that also enhances their development and

education too."

Art Innovators, which serves the West Los Angeles and surrounding areas, is an

art enrichment program for kids of all ages and lets children discover various

artistic styles and techniques using a variety of mediums such as water colors,

high quality art markers, colored pencils, chalk, charcoal and polymer

clay. 

Art Innovators summer campers can

participate in themed programs including “Creature Camp’ where children will Discover

how dragons got their fiery reputation, create your own creature puppet, and

learn some special art tricks that will help you draw anything you can imagine.

Or “Caribbean Adventure” where

children will have fun filled days with treasure maps, sculptures, Caribbean

Island drawings, acrylic painting and other projects related to the Caribbean

Sea.

The camps’ use of age appropriate,

safe, professional-level art supplies, creative activities and focusing

exercises can enhance learning and build skills that the children can use

during the school year.  “Our activities include communication,

imagination and expression which keep the kids’ brains in an active learning

mode,” says Groehler.
