Kids Summer Art Camps at CLS

Why Kids Need More Art In Their Lives….

We are busy as spring bee’s getting ready for those first summer blooms here at Crooked Line Studio. While winters do well to keep us indoors making art, we are ready to hit the ground rolling with summer art classes for all!

One such adventure coming up soon is our summer art camps for the kids. We are thrilled to have three themed camps planned for our budding young artists to choose from…Sailing the Art-Sea, Cosmic Creators and Rubbish Reincarnated!

Teaching after school art classes here at CLS this last year has been an amazing experience. Kids can be the ultimate art partners to create and learn along with.

One thing we have learned is how art effects little growing minds. Much like clay is hard when you first peel it from its block, once you begin warming it in your hands it begins to soften and become easier to sculpt. So too do kids soften to the possibilities art holds for them as they continue to make it a consistent part of their lives.

No matter the age, every person who walks through our doors is looking to tap into that creative spark inside themselves. It’s something as teachers we strive to encourage in everything we do with our students.

“Creativity is seeing what others see and thinking what no one else ever thought.”

– Albert Einstein

There is nothing better than when we see someone come in, highly skeptical they’ll be impressed by anything they create during their time with us, only to find out how participating in the art making process changed their whole outlook on what art can do for them. Sometimes the changes take a little longer, but class by class, we can see brighter, more confident and intrepid artists peek through. All tapping into their own unique creative talents. 

The artists and teachers here at CLS aren’t just talented at creating art, but also have the passion to share their knowledge with our Billings community. In a world searching for more connection, we can think of no better vehicle for it than art.

Art…where mistakes can become contagious doodles full of laughter and mirth. Art… where kids can explore different cultures and the history of the world without leaving the studio. Art…where everyone can share and feel welcomed to be a part of something bigger and more colorful than themselves.

We hope to see many new young faces in our studio for our summer camps and as always, we love to serve our Billings community with art opportunities for all.

Details for our summer camps are below! Happy Summer Painters!
