Professional instruction fosters many artistic experiences at all skill levels. There's something for everyone, as campers express themselves creatively in our 15 art studios and workshops.
HVC campers design their own traditional stained glass pieces - mirrors, window hangings, etc. - and that's just the beginning! Campers make fused glass plates, bowls and plaques. They create jewelry and small sculptures in the glass bead studio. And the Beehive is home to a dynamic glass blowing program where campers produce glass flowers, cups and more.
Campers melt glass to create sculptures and glass bead jewelry.
Hidden Valley's 3 room pottery studio features 5 wheels, a huge open space where children create an infinite number of hand-building projects, and 3 kilns, a slab roller and just outside a special spot for raku firings.
The sky's the limit in this active and exciting camp area! Make furniture for home, create free form sculptures, invent a toy and more!
Two darkrooms support HVC's dedication to the "ancient art" of analog black and white photography. We provide each camper with a 35 millimeter camera and they print their photos.
Silkscreen, tie dye or batik a T-shirt. Create a pillow or stuffed animal. You'll bring something home that you'll have forever!
Three art studios are dedicated to drawing and painting, papier mâché and other forms of expression.
Campers make dulcimers, ukuleles, xylophones and thumb pianos and then learn to play these lovely creations.
