The 3 core pieces of every week designed to help your kids grow in creativity and self confidence are:
Get creative every week with several themed art activities, craft projects, and drawing prompts to choose from every week.
Learn through hands-on experiences, science experiments, fun facts sheets, and children's picture books.
Participate in fun challenges every week as you do the creative activities and apply what you learn.

Each week, we give you creative activities and learning experiences around an interesting theme, bundled together in an one easy-to-use module that you can access online.
There are many ways to use this virtual art camp experience; choose what works best for you and your family.
My daughter did the art activities on her own or with a friend, with little intervention from me. I was surprised by how useful it was for the kids to watch a video tutorial.
We don't use many screens at home, especially when friends are over. And I generally have plenty of craft materials available for kids and our little art nook devoted to doing art. So, when I saw the process, I was surprised that I liked it so much.
The activities you chose were such that after the kids learned the technique, they wanted to try more and more ideas using the same technique. Also, the draw of "watching" a video enticed the friends who were over.

We are super happy we are part of the Kids Art Club! I love how easy it is to find something quickly to do with my daughter! - Jaime Griffin
I find most value in the videos. My children can’t read well yet so it’s liberating for them to be able to collect the materials and do the activity after watching the videos. I also like the tips for how to differentiate the activity at the end of the videos.
We watched the video about making art with washi tape and then the kids made their own pieces of art. They were inspired by the face shown in the video and enjoyed making their own faces! It was a great activity, and the video was helpful for the kids to get started independently. I didn’t have to do anything, just gave them the tape and paper. - Jaclyn Bentley
We are enjoying this program! We are in a busy season of life and my oldest is a self starter. We are hoping to continue to carve out space for more activities and make the tweaks needed in our household to get the most out of our membership. Thank you for creating this space. - Katie Redington
I am thrilled to be a part of a club created for families to enjoy making and learning about art together. I homeschool my children and use many of your resources to help enrich their lives with art and creativity. - Emily Yancer Watson
