Kids Camps

Austin Kids Camps – Fine Arts

The Dirty Easel Fine Arts Camps bring art, theater, and music together. Children are strengthening their natural creativity through projects that stimulate and inspire their curiosity and imagination. We play, explore, and learn indoors as well as outdoors.

Many schools have been cutting down their art programs in the last few years. We want children to grow their creative potential. Children love art because it is a fun experience. When using children’s inherit creativity they learn to inhabit their feelings, to authentically manifest who they are, and to explore their world. And we also prepare them for the creative thinking skills that are highly required in 21st century jobs.

Christiane Michaelis, the owner of The Dirty Easel and a certified Music and Theater teacher, will lead all camps.

Activities: singing, making music, painting, drawing, crafting, acting, dancing, creative writing

Besides offering all those activities each camp will have an art related focus that will be addressed every day.

Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up.

I believe that my daughter’s imagination has been sparked by this class and she still enjoys performing and uses different voices for each character she embodies. It’s a great arena for letting your little one explore their creativity and use their voice and body. This class is the perfect match of play and learning.
