Created By Kids is excited to be in our 10TH YEAR of running our School year Camp Program! We will continue to follow any and all up to date COVID-19 guidelines in NYC, we are still working hard to provide a fun, creative and SAFE Camp experience in the studio.
We believe that visual arts are an important form of communication and expression, and that having a creative outlet can be deeply therapeutic, especially in difficult times. Our first priority is the safety of our staff and campers, so we have implemented our SAFETY GUIDELINES AND PROCEDURES.
Additionally, we hope the structured schedule and extra safety measures we’ll be implementing for in-person camps will support students throughout the school year. At the same time, we want to enforce and model these safety precautions as an act of kindness and mutual respect, so that your child never feels the learning environment is less than warm and welcoming. Staff will be serving your children both directly and behind the scenes and will initiate a process of constant evaluation of our policies, procedures, and interactions to reduce potential risk while fostering experiences that inspire creativity and celebrate community in new ways.
As always, students will explore different thematic concepts or artists works, beginning with an educational foundation as inspiration. During the camp day we’ll use a variety of art-making techniques and mediums, including clay, textiles, printmaking, mixed-media projects, and more! The variety will keep kids interested while they learn about cultures, history, and literature through our unique fine arts curriculum.
Our in person camps are held at our studio, located at 592 Pacific St. Brooklyn, NY, steps away from Atlantic Terminal/Barclays Center.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Winter is the perfect time for self-reflection, and creating art can be an important part of expressing our innermost thoughts, dreams and feelings. Our About The Artist Camp will encourage students to look inward and make artwork that is all about them! We'll create sculptures that display our personalities in 3-D, explore surrealism and the subconscious in self-portraiture, and study artists that draw inspiration from their family members, traditions, and life at home.
We'll find common bonds and honor our differences, celebrating the individual style that makes each of us so unique. By sharing these visual representations of themselves in a variety of mediums, students will develop new ways of understanding their emotions and surroundings, as well as creative ways to communicate their reality to others. The work they create during Winter Break Camp will act as a meaningful snapshot of this moment in their lives, while also giving them tools of expression they can use for many seasons to come.
