Summer Camp Oakville

Posted by Tracey Dreesen on Monday, June 11, 2018 Under: Art

Tell me, what does your kid love to do with their magical creative time. They all have that time whether it's to literally do some crafts and art with crayons, markers, play dough and clay.. but there are so many wonderful creative things that kids do to recharge and take that very special time they need to let their minds drift away!

When my oldest son was 2-3 years old he loved trains.. he would build trains with lego and gently (and not so gently) drive them around the house on his hands and knees making whistle sounds and he was lost in that creative play. When he became older, he turned to cartooning and scribble-drawings to express himself. He is now the musical one plays guitar as well as piano to lose himself in creativity.

My younger son was more of a" light sabers can be made of anything" type of child. Star Wars, Super Heroes, Pirates, usually he was the bad buy but.. no judgement here! He is the one who turned to realism and drawing when he got a bit older and still takes time as a teenager to draw and relax by drawing characters and images he is into. What a great way for kids to handle stress, which is definitely an on-going issue. 

It's important no matter how academic a parent you are, to nurture your child's creative side as well. Numerous studies have shown that taking time to do art, crafts, drawing, sewing, painting and other creative pursuits (including music of course!) will increase results in other areas. Not only that.. art is FUN and there is a huge sense of pride in kids and teenagers who create something personal and special to them!

Summer camps have begun at Speckles Art Studio in Oakville. We are also running our Summer Drawing Lessons through July and August. Our programs are empowering, we are proud of our returning instructors and the high-quality of the art we promote and turn out of this location! Nothing will go from the fridge to the trash, we assist kids in creating artwork and keepsakes to treasure always.

Contact the studio for more info and to register. Some spots remain for the current 2018 summer season and we look forward to having you! 905-825-9994.
