the Youth Arts Series Fall Break Halloween Art Camp 2023
Program Description:
Our spookiest and kookiest camp has returned for its 4th year
Enter the Terrible Toy Box, an unsettling land where the misfit toys rule!
Students will create pieces to be collectively displayed in our spooky toy box themed haunted house. Through their classes, students will learn a variety of techniques ranging from 3D building, fabric/textile work, printmaking and more. In addition to the art techniques, students will build their communication and teamwork skills while contributing to this collaboration.
The Haunted House will open to the public on October 21st and the student’s creations will remain on view until the end of October. The Haunted House is a fundraiser for the Youth Arts Series. Proceeds from entry will go toward continuing youth programs at EHCC throughout the year.
Fall Break: October 9–13, 2023 (Monday–Friday)

Ages 8–14
