This summer why not provide your child with the tools to create and unlock hours of exploration and play that will last long throughout the long summer days? At IMS Summer Arts, we will fill your child’s head with “what ifs?” and “I cans!” Our program provides your child with time to explore art (printmaking, sculpture, fiber arts, painting), encouraging them to go longer and broader, with their explorations, thoughts, and skills. We mix projects that provide instant satisfaction with those that require patience and focus. Your child will leave our program having been exposed to contemporary and historical artists in varied disciplines. He/she will be primed and ready to create, dream, visualize art, and conjure up projects from all you expose them to in summer.

Cost: $285.00
