Patterns in Nature at Olympia's Fertile Ground Commons -
Summer 2017

Since 2013, summer art day camps for kids (and adults too if they wish) at Fertile Ground Commons in downtown Olympia have been a lot of fun and quite a success. Camps offer a week of making art that includes clay, oil and chalk pastels, watercolor, acrylic painting, mosaics, theatre, music, building spirit houses, field trips and more.Campers come away with a full portfolio of works along with a performance of music and stories or theatre for parents on the last day. Enrollment per camp is kept at 6 members, since the studio space is small. This summer some field trips may include Kennedy Creek and Nisqually Wildlife Refuge as well as Heritage Fountain and The Farmer's Market.

Camps for 2017:
June 26-30, August 7 - 11, and August 23 - 25.
