Coinciding with our Youth Installation Summer Camps, Artist Youth have the option to attend camp for free during the day or join the Artist Parent on-site for research. For artist parents, this is a self-directed residency. The Artist Family benefits both from the individual creative process and also through togetherness while exploring the connection between art and ecology. A culminating Parents & Community sharing of Summer Camp Works provides a joined capstone experience for the Artist Family.
