Passion for Art
There is an artist in every child, and our Passion for Art camp will bring out the artist in yours.
Our skilled and experienced tutors will help your child to express their creativity in a wide variety of media such as painting, drawing, ceramics and recycling. However, they will also learn art history and global cultures and how to appreciate different styles including Neolithic, Classical, Romantic, Impressionist/Abstract Impressionist, Pointillist, Pop and Minimalist.
The week concludes with a gallery exhibition, where you could well be astounded at your child’s creativity and new-found skill.
"My daughter Millie loves Camp Asia! She comes home with a different creation every day that she has made in her favorite art lesson."
