Summer Camps

THE BEST, MOST FUN CAMPS EVER!

days and time varies by studios please check schedules below

FOR AGES 6 TO 12

All campers must be at least 6 years old at the start of camp. No exceptions.

Each child must be able to walk into the studio on their own and say goodbye at the door. Please no parents in the studio in order to limit the number of people in the studio.

Throughout the camp, kids can explore a variety of mediums, which encourages a love of learning, independence, creativity and artistic flow! Earn and collect badges throughout the camp.

A project is completed in each half day camp (3 hour block.) This is a mixed media camp with a focus on acrylic painting and clay work.

Lots of NEW projects, talented instructors, awesome professional art supplies and engaging artist talks! All the great things you can expect from our 4Cats camps!

Layout changes we made at 4Cats for social distancing

Studio Renos

We are deep cleaning and renovating the interior to comply with health recommendations of social distancing, sanitization and sharing. We will set up station tables for students to work individually, students will get an area assigned to them for each project. Tables will be 6 feet apart around the parameter of the room, one table per student and there are plexiglass dividers between each station.

Creation Station

Students will no longer share supplies. Students will create 6 feet apart with plexiglass dividers between each station. We no longer have large shared tables, everyone has their own space to work at. We have thought carefully about what supplies and materials are needed in the space and removed unnecessary items to optimize sanitization. Each student has their own selection of tools at their station, no sharing of supplies.

Controlled Cleaning and Movement

Hourly hand washing will be mandatory and one student at a time will be permitted at the sink area. We will continue to teach care of materials with the students, with each one being responsible for cleaning their own tools. Floor space has been opened up and floor traffic will be controlled by teachers.

More Cleaning Time

Teachers have increased time between lessons to sanitize the studio; work areas, floors, high touch areas and bathroom. After each lesson, teachers will sanitize and reset each station. End of day cleaning time has increased and will be documented and monitored daily. All teachers will be retrained on new sanitization and health standards. Teachers will increase hand washing to every hour minimum and will stay home if feeling ill.

New Sign In Procedures

Drop off at the front door only to limit the amount of people inside. In any outdoor lineups people must keep 6 feet apart, as marked on pavement. No parents inside, no exceptions. Students must bring a pair of indoor shoes and parents must take outdoor shoes and coats away with them. Students are only permitted to bring a labelled water bottle and labelled small lunch container, no backpacks. All students must bring their own painting smock or wear appropriate clothes that can get messy, no shared aprons will be available.

Behaviour and Touching

Please talk to your kids before they come about behaviour, listening and touching. Absolutely no touching will be permitted of other students, the teacher, materials, tools or things around the studio outside of their station. Students will be instructed before each lesson of this and to keep their hands to themselves. We will demonstrate the correct amount of space between students that must be adhered to. Failure to follow these rules will result in immediate parent pickup, no exceptions.

Health Check and Policy

Families will answer questions during sign in to ensure each student is fit to participate. Parents must confirm their child is not experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19 including: fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat or painful swallowing, runny nose, nasal congestion, loss of sense of smell, headache, muscle aches, fatigue, loss of appetite. If a child or any family member in the household is ill, do not come. If a teacher observes signs of illness in a child, parents will be contacted immediately to pick up and no credit or refund will be given. If a teacher is feeling ill we will cancel class with as much notice as possible and credit will be applied to any participating family account.

Same Great Art!

Yes, the studio will look different BUT the artwork and standard of teaching has not changed. You can still expect a high quality of teaching, great materials and wonderful smiling teachers who have had new training to ensure health and safety is still their #1 priority with the new regulations.
