The 2020/21 Experience at Create with Kirshy
We are excited to announce that registration is now open for our Create With Kirshy Art/Multimedia Super Summer Camp (Ages 7 +) for one-week sessions starting July 6, 2020.
Program Details Although our doors have been closed these past few months, we have been hard at work, planning a fun-filled creative full-day (9 am -3:30 pm with free aftercare until 6 pm) experience, where young artists will draw, paint and sculpt a variety of fun activities, including mini-comics/storybooks, games and figures/ figurines to take home. To address health and safety concerns, each registration will include the cost of individual supplies/ materials so participants will not be sharing these with others.
