SFB Summer Drawing Camp!




The goals of the camp will be to open an avenue of self-expression while fostering an appreciation for art. The camp will emphasize Cartooning (emphasizing the communication of ideas through symbol) and Life Drawing (faithfully depicting the world around you).


Each day will consist of warm ups, guided lessons, games, creative collaboration, and drawing, drawing, drawing, in addition to regularly scheduled lunch and recesses. This camp will also include two field trips to Sunnyside Park for observational drawing and to the Walt Disney Museum in the Presidio. Over the course of 3 weeks we will build up each child’s visual library and create a strong foundation of crucial drawing skills. Campers will learn how to transform ideas into finished work they can be proud of and build confidence in their abilities. Whether someone pursues art for fun, or in a professional capacity, art is an invaluable resource for creative problem solving, self discovery, and expressing ideas.


Drawing Camp will run for 3 weeks beginning Monday, June 15th and ending Friday, July 3rd. The Camp will begin at 8:00am and end at 3:00pm Monday through Friday. The weekly rate for Drawing camp is $112.00. There is an additional $50 materials fee and $12.99 field trip cost. Materials will be purchased and provided by the instructors. Lunch will not be provided and must be brought from home. The total cost for all three weeks is $398.99. Aftercare will be offered from 3:00pm to 5:00pm for an additional $6.00 per hour.


Drawing camp will be open to incoming 2nd - 7th graders. All skill levels are welcome, however a serious passion for drawing is highly recommended as most of our activities will center on this highly rewarding pursuit. There are 15 openings, so sign up quickly!
