Each session is taught by Claudia and Sergio Olivos, both accomplished artist and experienced educators, to include Claudia's 8 years at the Art League of Alexandria (Torpedo Factory) and four years as adjunct faculty at the Art Institute of Washington, and Sergio's three years as faculty at the Universidad de Queretaro in Mexico. Both are professional artists who enjoy teaching children and teens the love of art. Each session is designed to incorporate science, archaeology, art history and literature with the visual arts. Inspired by the work of artists from around the world, your child will find new avenues of self-expression and will experience the joy of art making!
Olivosart summer camp will be held Monday through Friday 9:00am-4:00pm, with extended hours available 8:30 in the am and to 6pm in the afternoon. Once the session's maximum limit of students is reached, a waitlist will be established. I will contact those on the waitlist as space becomes available.
