G’dayo! Ni hao! Manahoana! Hola!

Greetings from Australia, China, Mexico and Madagascar. The art from these countries will be the focus of this summer’s Art Around the World Summer Camp at Creative Clay. The 8-week camp for kids of all abilities ages 6 to 12 will highlight art, culture and customs from these diverse areas of the world.

Camp begins June 3 and continues through July 26, Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Campers will enjoy a teacher/student ratio of 1:6. Each week culminates in a Friday afternoon for parents and friends in Creative Clay’s music studio.

This is the 11th year Creative Clay will offer Art Around the World, the Bay area’s only inclusive summer art camp for children. Children of different abilities share a classroom and share the experience of creating art together, versus a traditional school setting where students are often separated due to neuro differences. Unique to this camp is the opportunity for each camper to create a camp T-shirt. Campers submit their portrait, and Big Frog Custom T-Shirts uses all images to create a memento for campers.

The cost to attend Art Around the World is $150.00 per week, and scholarships are available for those who qualify. Parents and caregivers also get a summer break from lunch prep thanks to free lunches provided daily by the Pinellas County School System.

Details and an online application are available at creativeclay.org/summer-camp.
