Camps

Spend your Summer and Spring Breaks making art at Little Tree Studios! Little Tree Studios Summer Art Camp is for children ages 5–11yrs. Each Art Camp is a week program that runs from 9:00am-3:00pm with a limit to only 18 students per camp who will work with 3 professional artist and trained teachers. A 90-min supervised lunch period and recess is provided for all children at Mission Park on Valencia each day. Campers must bring their own nut free lunch and snacks. An optional, extended day is available from 3:00 to 5:00pm which can be paid on a day-to-day basis @ $15.00 per hour. This extended care time will be less-structured allowing children an "open studio" time to do activities that they choose. Wait lists are available.
All camps are final sale. There is reimbursement for camp cancelations only when a wait list replacement is found, this includes a $50.00 cancelation fee. Sibling discount is 5% off and credited back after purchase in studio, or used towards aftercare fees.

Plaster House

Screen Shot 2017-01-29 at 3.36.03 PMJoin us in this five day class to design a plaster house. Create a Victorian or a restaurant. Starting with a split milk carton we will cover the exterior and interior with plaster gauze strips to give the house strength and texture. We will then use wood popsicles for the roof, windows, doors and chimney. Artists can then take the open floor plan into their own hands to design roof decoration, window plants, furniture, wallpaper, tile and also using all sorts of found gadgets and gizmos that we repurpose with paint. We will take a neighborhood walk and draw plans for our buildings from the surroundings as well as investigate books of all types of homes and buildings. Each house will also have 4 small wooden people to decorate and place inside. Class is non-refundable unless a wait list replacement is found (+service charge).

3-D Canvas

IMG_2944-329x494In this 5 day class Little Artists will explore texture in a multiple staged painting project on canvas. On day one, all artists will paint a scene of choice on 16 x 24 canvas already covered in one layer of crumpled tissue paper-Example- dirt, grass, sky flowers and trees. On day two, they will be given an array of tissue paper that they will use with glue to crumple and collage onto flower petals and trees to give their work depth and texture. Then the remaining days of class, artists will use glitter tag board, patterned tag board and other papers to create 3-D bugs, birds and animals that when glued on their wings, heads or paws will look like they’re about to flutter or jump off of the canvas. Small details will be painted through out the canvas using small brushes and colorful acrylic paints. Children are welcome to come with other ideas paint a garden, cityscape, self-portrait, underwater scene etc.
Class is non-refundable unless a wait list replacement is found (+service charge).
