Visual Arts

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.

Glass Arts

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.

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.

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.
