Desert Cactus Summer Workshop (8P1W)

August 4 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

$24

Summer Youth Art Camps at ICCGS–for ages 8-15!  At ICCGS, we have provided art education for over 10 years through our Summer Camp Programs.  For 2021, we are excited to offer a variety of 1-day workshops.  In each 2-hour Summer Camp Workshop, campers will create a project using a variety of hand building skills–with help from our Summer Camp Instructors.  The campers will then glaze (aka paint) their works to be fired in our kilns.  Projects will be available for pickup 3 weeks after their workshop.  These camps are a great option for siblings who want to take a class together!

Desert Cactus:  Let’s create your own desert oasis by creating a cacti or succulent from clay.  We will carve, pinch and work from slabs of clay to create a cactus that won’t poke you. This workshop is for ages 8 to 15.

Date: Wednesday, August 4th

Time: 1:00PM-3:00PM

Tuition: $24/person

Camp Code: 8P1W

 

Additional Information:

Age Restrictions: We structure our camps by age in order to target our camper’s ability levels for each class. When their camp begins, children must be the minimum age requirement for their camp. In order to ensure the success and enjoyment of our Summer Camp classes, please observe these restrictions when registering. Please check our updated COVID policies located on our website for any questions regarding our safety procedures—the safety of our campers, staff and studio members is paramount to ICCGS. 

Drop Off/Pick Up: for all 2/3/5 day summer camps, check-in and check-out will take place at the entrance to iCCGS, located inside the Cherry Building across from the NewBo Marketplace. Parents/adults must sign their child in and out of camp every day. For all 1-day workshops, check-in and check-out will take place at the entrance of the ICCGS STEAM Classroom (ON THE 11th Avenue SIDE), Please be punctual with all drop-offs and pick-ups. Sign-in begins no more than 5 minutes before the start of camp. Unless previously arranged, campers will not be released until the end of class. For the best creative experience, and for COVID precautions, for all, parents/adults are not allowed in the studio space during class time -- but are welcome to wait in the lobby area until the end of class. At the time of your summer camp, please adhere to all posted information regarding COVID precautions and wearing masks inside the building. 

What to Wear and Bring: Masks in the studio are mandatory.  Clay may be messy, so make sure your child wears appropriate clothing and closed-toed shoes. Please make sure your child is wearing clothing that can be easily laundered. For glass workshops (Studio Experience) closed-toed shoes and covered thighs are REQUIRED for safety. Food is prohibited in the studio but water bottles (with secure tops) are allowed.

Cancellation Policy: ICCGS reserves the right to cancel sessions due to the minimum enrollment not being met. In that event, participants will be notified and refunds will be given.

Refunds and Transfers: Parents/Adults may cancel their child’s session for a full refund no later than one week (7 days) before the first day of class. A $15 processing fee is required to transfer from one camp to another, if space is available 7 days prior to the start of camp. No refunds or transfers will be allowed with less than 7 days notice.

Completed Projects: Student’s work will be available for pickup exactly three weeks after the end of their session; we will NOT call or email you when items are ready for pickup. All summer camp projects left in the studio after September 5th will be recycled.

Please note: when you pick up your child’s items, be sure to have the camp code with you (i.e. 1LA). Every child will have their own brown bag labeled with their camp code and first name. Having the camp code with you is necessary to correctly locate your child’s items.
