We are super excited to bring a new twist to our beloved ukulele and art camp! Art as Activism has been an exciting subject for the past two summers and we’re bringing it back with claymation, taught by teacher and librarian extraordinaire, Amanda Braziel. In past camps our students have used their art to make our world a better place. They have screen printed bags to raise money for the food pantry, made clay vases to hold flowers for our local nursing home, created plastic coral reefs to bring attention to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and more. This summer the kids will take an issue of importance to them and use it as inspiration for a claymation movie. Agua Fresca owner, Jennifer Ober, will lead an art project or two in addition to the claymation each morning. Wilson Marks is back with for the music portion of the camp. He’ll be teaching the ukulele (an instrument can be provided and lent out during the duration of the camp) in addition to exploring drums and percussion instruments. He’ll also bring some recording equipment to help soundtrack the movies. Jennifer, Amanda and Wilson used to teach at the same school a few years ago. They’re excited to reunite for this very special camp experience!

*Please also note that clay projects must dry for several days before they can be fired in the kiln, so clay projects will need to be picked up at a later date. If your child would like to glaze (add color!) to his or her ceramic piece(s), you can always sign up for one of the glazing days later in the summer.

Please bring/wear the following each day:
* a reusable water bottle
* two snacks
* a sack lunch
* wear art-friendly clothes (we also have art t-shirts available)
* wear water-friendly shoes that secure well to the feet (no flip flops or Crocs)

To Register: Please complete the student profile, then add the class to your cart and select the ‘pay with a credit card’ option. If you prefer to pay with cash or check, just email Jennifer at to make arrangements.
