Art Camp provides an exploration of a variety of visual arts media to develop campers' creativity and individuality. These young artists will be wire sculpting, painting, weaving, creating unique jewelry, drawing, pottery making, constructing mosaics, and creating weekly multicultural projects. Campers will have an hour free period choice each day and will also participate in all special events that are on campus. A healthy lunch, snack, popsicle, and daily swim are included in this co-ed program. Each week will be a different theme and have different projects. Although our specialty camps have a range of different aged campers all campers are grouped with other campers closest to their age. Our energetic and fully-trained staff are carefully selected based on experience, character, and leadership. Every staff member is background checked, as we continue to maintain the highest level of safety and security on campus.
Nickoya Beckford has been a part of the American Heritage Summer Camp family for many years. While a high school student at American Heritage, she fell in love with art and explored a variety of art mediums including ceramics, painting, drawing, photography, and Advanced Placement 2D Composition. The highlight of her portfolio was a series of nine oil on canvas portraits called “The Artist and Her Muses”. Ms. Beckford holds a BS degree from USF and is pursuing her Ph.D. She is looking forward to teaching students to create art while having fun exploring the various art mediums.
