Summer 2018 Themes
Theme 1: Circus

You be the ring master and let your imagination soar under the Big Top!  Acrobats, exotic animals from faraway lands, sweet treats and fantastic performers inspire you to draw, paint, print, and sculpt your way through a week of wonder!
Theme 2: Imaginarium – Creators and Inventors

What is an imaginarium you ask? It’s like a gymnasium for your imagination where you will stretch and build your creative muscles!  Get ready to design the box, make it, and then think outside of it because this week is going to take every ounce of creativity that you have!
Theme 3: Into the Forest

The forest has long been a source of inspiration for artist and creators.  The cool dappled shade and peaceful sounds of the forest, invite us to take our time and discover the myriad creatures and plants, real and imagined.

But you don’t need to take our word for it…here’s what our campers and parents have to say:
” Just wanted to let you know that my 12 yr old daughter is loving this week’s summer art camp at VAM. She is bringing home some absolutely stunning creations and is enjoying the thoughtful instructors and interesting subject matter.”

Congratulations on such wonderful art pieces. Huge success!

It should be called VAAM-Visual Awesome Arts Mississauga instead!

My daughter learns so much and has begged to come back again!
