Art Camps

Your health and safety is important to me. Unfortunately in-person summer camps will not be running this year, but that doesn't mean we cannot create together!


ArtVentures will instead be hosting a Summer Sketchbook Challenge as an at-home alternative. Read more below.


The Summer Sketchbook Challenge is an opportunity for you to fill an entire sketchbook in just one month! Every week in July, Emma will share FIVE activities, themes, or art explorations for you to complete in your sketchbook. Choose to work on one each day, or dive right in and work on them all at once! It is your sketchbook, so the choice is yours.

Every week we will build on knowledge and skill from past projects and exercises.


The format for ArtVentures' Summer Sketchbook Challenge is:

Monday August 3: Line & Expression

Monday August 10: Shape & Composition

Monday August 17: Form & Value

Monday August 24: Colour & Style

Emma balances guided instruction with open-ended prompts, making this the perfect creative exploration for artists as young as 6, right up to 18 years. Prompts, projects, and techniques have been thoughtfully assembled to build off of one another and improve drawing skills and visual literacy.
