'Best summer camp in San Antonio! My son, Noah is returning this summer....and he is thrilled!' Kathleen Bond Blanton

Our Premier "Finding Michelangelo" ™ Program

This is the most advanced program in sculpture for kids, probably anywhere. It is designed for very art talented kids, "kids who want to be in art class, who want to do art, hours at a time". This program offers sculpture courses you will not find in any public school, not even likely at your favorite college or university. The program exposes the young artist to the fundamentals via the study of shape; clay before color.
