Summer Fun! Art Camps and projects are designed as a means of enhancing and engaging your child’s creativity and imagination during the summer months they are not in school. Students enrolled in Summer Fun! Art Camps continue creative learning and exploring in a positive and encouraging environment. Camp classes are designed for all school aged children.

       

Off The Wall will strictly follow the CDC recommendations established to provide a safe learning/creating environment for all of us.Of course our first choice is to hold classes outdoors so that we may enjoy the beautiful Minnesota summer weather, but when that can't happen I have created a safe and fun in-studio environment for students.
