Join the Annual Kids Camp at the Jax! This year will we have new and exciting activities and classes.  Learn more about the instructors and projects below!

Sarah Reyburn will be leading our young artists on adventures in drawing. Students will create a plethora of 2-D artwork using all sorts of dry media like Craypas, Charcoal, Pastels, Pencil, Pens and many others. Sarah loves to encourage expressionism in artwork and works with students to understand the world around them by practicing drawing from real-life.

Jayn Avery will be in the pottery studio playing in clay with our students. The younger artists will have time to hand build projects, and the older ones will even get to use the electric throw wheels. Learning about three dimensional design and properties of clay will be part of their activities as well.

Gwen Goepel will guide student creating fabric collages. Using stretched canvas as a base, students will select, cut, and glue fabrics in fun and unique ways to create a collage. Collages may be abstract representations or more realistic images. Whatever image is chosen, Gwen and the artists will have a great time making this artwork.

Carrie Gault will help our young artists discover the joy of mosaics. Students will pick designs and use reclaimed materials to create beautiful mosaics. These projects may be individual or we may even have a special project to be put on display for the public to view here at The Jax.

Deborah Harris will teach our students the versatility of gourds. The students will choose their gourd from a selection that Deborah has prepared ahead of time, and then work them into bird house or shaker instruments. Applying acrylic craft paints, students will decorate this artistic item to make it one of a kind.

Deborah Carrino loves the art of batiking and will be sharing it with our students. Batiking is the art of using wax resist to dye handmade designs into fabric. Student will wax designs onto t-shirts and then choose their dye colors, each day adding more wax design and a new dye color.

Emily Williamson loves to paint and create. She will be engaging the student in a mixed media class that will include painting techniques and more.   Students will have fun exploring ways to play with many different media to express their creativity.

About the week:

The students will be divided into two age groups.  Siblings of different ages may asked to be separated or combined, however The Jax tries to arrange the groups to keep capabilities of the age levels together and balance the size of each group.

Students will need to arrive just before 9am and will need to be picked up at 3pm.   If you are in need of special arrangements for your child to stay longer at The Jax, please contact the center to inquire, we are happy to work with you.

Healthy snacks and time for fun exercise will be included, but students should pack a lunch for each day.

Students will need to have a minor’s liability agreement and photo waiver completed and signed by a parent or guardian before attending camp.

Students will move around The Jax campus to attend 3 or 4 different classes during each camp day.  Students will not be left alone during anytime, a “camp counselor” (a teen volunteer or a Jax staff member) will also be with them.
