Youth Programs (from KIDS)

“I’ve gone to Davis for two years now and my drawing skills have increased by the thousands. I’ve met people that have now become my best friends, but what makes Davis the place it is today are the teachers; they are so nice and kind and can understand you for who you are and don’t judge you if you don’t understand something and they are willing to help with whatever you need. Even now in this hard time the Davis members still have their cheerful mood and are still as fun as ever”

During this camp I loved altering old clothing and making it my own. I also loved designing different outfits to put in my portfolio. This camp is a great place to express your fashion art.

13-year-old student

This camp was really great because we got to design whatever kind of game we wanted. We got cool boards and boxes that looked like real games when we were done. We also got to pick out playing pieces and dice and other stuff. My game is fun to play and the other kids games were too.

Youth Programs (from parents)

“The Davis Studio has been such a great place for our daughter. She has attended the studio for 3 years and, just as it was on her first day, it continues to be a place where she feels at home and welcomed. We consistently see a child come home from the studio that is brimming with chatter, energy, smiles, ideas and confidence. The staff continue to meet her passions and rich ideas with the utmost understanding and tenderness. The instruction is meaningful and authentic and allows my daughter to enjoy herself without criticism from herself or others. She genuinely sees herself as an individual with something to offer. The staff at the studio do the following with my daughters ideas: allow dialogue around them, seek them out, listen to them free of judgement, create space for them, move them into visual expression, build upon them, expand upon them, teach her how to move forward with them, use them in your work with her and others. And, who doesn’t want that for their child? Thank you doesn’t begin to express what your studio has done for our daughter but I’ll say the words anyway… Thank you”

Parents of a 10-year-old student

“First, we love Davis Studio!! The Explorer’s program, as well as her Creative Path class, have provided a vital outlet to be with and connect with other kids while we took a year off to home school. I love how what she learns at Davis Studio has been applicable to the more typical academic work she’s doing and I personally love her getting to know other local kids she might not have met otherwise. Thanks for all you do.” 

Parent of a 9-year-old student

To say our son enjoyed your camp would be a great understatement. He hung his paintings with care all over the house as soon as he got home. He then directed several projects with his sister, including a sand painting (thank goodness I had some sand lying around). As he fell asleep last night, he told me that he felt famous at the art show. He converted our garage into an art studio this morning – he wanted to start at 6 am, but we persuaded him to wait until 7:30. He was disappointed that we couldn’t make it look like your studio, but is willing to suffer for his art and so has accepted the limitations of the garage. You did such a great job at your camp; it was heartwarming to see how proud all the kids were of their art – and they were rightly so, because it was all beautiful. I am sure we’ll be seeing you in the fall.

“Look no further for a vast variety of art programs to nurture every artist within. High quality instruction and materials set in a light filled and state of the art studio centrally located for easy access. Find top notch teachers to nurture your kid’s creativity. There is something for everyone young and old, traditionally schooled or home-schooled all week long!”

Parent of a 12-year-old student

I was struck by how positive the students were in your class and how sincerely they complimented one another’s paintings. It was a wonderful experience for our son to explore art in such a nurturing place.

Parent of a 7-year-old student

“My daughter had a wonderful experience at art camp. She felt such a sense of accomplishment and gained in self-confidence. She was given just the right amount of guidance to support her own creative ideas. Camp helped bring out her passion for art. We love having her beautiful paintings displayed in our home.”

This camp is what every child who has ever dreamed of the world of fairies could hope to be a part of.
