MARCH BREAK ART CAMP

 

Upcoming dates: March 4 – 8, 2024

Since 2023, the ArtLab collaborates with the Bishop’s University Office of Sustainable Development to offer our March Break Art campers five days of activities under the theme Art and Nature.

The rhythm of a day at camp consists of periods of self-directed art making, time for walking and free play in nature, and guided art workshops. The theme Art and Nature is approached from different angles depending on the time spent outdoors or the activities taking place in the studio. Our intention is to offer all campers a lively experience of nature and an artistic exploration that comes with it!

Located at the heart of Bishop’s University, our March Break Art Camp offers participants access to the ArtLab (right underneath the Foreman Art Gallery, at the end of the corridor), a real art studio, as well as the beautiful grounds of the campus!
