Since we started The Studio, it's been a bit of a whirlwind, and even though we have a lot on our schedule for the summer, I'm really looking forward to slowing down a little and taking some time to do some of the things I've been unable to do in the last few months.
Like create with my kids.
Making art, even art I end up not loving, is such a stress relief, but it's also a big boredom buster for the kids. And over the summer, if you're a mom, you know you're going to need things to keep them busy...preferably something they can do with their hands that isn't a video game.
Enter my Online Art Camp:
I had the wonderful opportunity to do this last year, and it was so much fun. It's like a ready-to-go art workshop that will guide kids (and parents too if you want!) through step-by-step instruction to creating super cute mixed media art.
I've gone to extra lengths to make boy-friendly artwork this go-round too, thanks to the boys in my own house.
This outer space scene has quickly become one of my all-time favorite pieces of art. I can't wait to recreate it with my youngest and find a spot in his room to display his work of art.
There are a number of other fun pieces for boys and girls and the great thing is you can do it anywhere you have an internet connection. Rainy, super hot or just plain boring days will be no sweat with this camp!
The Camp is being hosted on my friend Jeanne Oliver's Site, and you get all five projects for just $21.99 if you register early.
You can read more about all the wonderful creative summer ideas over on Jeanne's Blog. There are some super fun classes, and I can't wait to share an inspiring summer with YOU!

About Summer Art Camp for Kids:
Summer brings with it the promise of sunshine, long, lazy days and a slower, simpler pace we’ve all been craving. But, if you’re a mom or grandma, it might also bring with it two of the most dreaded words in the English language:
Enter Summer Art Camp for KIDS! An online art class for ages 5 - adult that will allow kids to cut, glue, paint, watercolor, sketch, collage, create and stretch their creative wings, all the while kicking boredom to the curb.
Author and paper artist Courtney Walsh will take kids on a guided journey through each of the five mixed media projects, encouraging students to think outside the creative box as she leads them through each step, breaking it down in a way they will easily understand and follow.
This online course is the perfect way to bond with your child, so feel free to get in on this artsy fun, save projects for rainy days or do them all in one week, the choice is up to you! Let’s have a creative summer together, shall we?
*The class will include 5 projects with art videos start to finish. This year we are bringing in more projects for BOYS too!
*Each course will have a supply list and templates and the course content will be available to you as long as we run Jeanne Oliver Designs.
