ARTISTS IN WONDERCAMP

"IT'S THE MOST PEACEFUL AND COOL PLACE WHERE YOU CAN BE UNIQUE AND EXPRESS YOURSELF."

                                   - Artists In WonderCamp Participant, 2019


A spring break and summer art program designed to introduce elementary and middle school students to contemporary art through inquiry-based learning, hands-on studio art experiences, and mindfulness. Students explore meaningful ideas and processes that help them investigate the world around them, through the elements of art while, most importantly, having lots of fun. 


Different themes and media are explored with an emphasis on the process over the final product to allow creativity to flow freely. Artists in WonderCamp begins each day with mindful movement and yoga. This play-based movement is intended to help students learn to manage stress through breathing and awareness, build concentration, increase confidence, and develop a positive self-image, all of which are tools that support the creative process. 


Artists in Wondercamp is held in the Arts on Arlington building in Parramore. Arts on Arlington is a freshly renovated 10,000-square-foot building home to McRae Art Studios, space for exhibitions, and ArtReach Orlando's Community Classroom. Through a partnership with McRae Art studios, our Artists in WonderCamp students have the opportunity to interact with professional artists and tour their studios. This partnership elevates the program and allows students to connect with professionals in the community. The arts are not only educational and a tool for self-expression, they create pathways for students’ futures. This partnership invites students to see a future in the arts.
