The Jansen Art Center is pleased to announce its upcoming Spring Break Camp, happening April 4–7. The Spring Break Camp provides a unique opportunity for young artists to explore their creativity and learn new skills through a variety of fun art activities.

The Spring Break Camp is open to children between the ages of 6 and 14 and will be held at the Jansen Art Center in Lynden. Young artists sign up for a 4-day program and can choose between a Morning Sampler Camp to try something different each day, or the Afternoon All-Out, focusing on one art form all week. Campers will have the chance to explore a range of mediums and techniques.

In the Morning Sampler Camp, each group of kids stays together as a class and visits a different workshop each morning from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Open to all kids aged 6 to 14, the young artists will be divided into groups of similar ages and will stay with their group for the remainder of the week, moving through each of the J’s studios day by day. The Morning Sampler workshops include Fiber Fantasies with Felt and Paper, Accordion Fold Sketchbooks, Bamboo Wind chimes, and Weaving on Cardboard Looms.

Artists in the Afternoon All-Out will stay in the same class all 4 days from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., to work on a bigger art project. This is a deep dive into one art form, and a chance to learn a lot in one area. Learn to make bracelets with yarn in the Braids, Bracelets, and Bands workshop. Explore using safe, natural dyes derived from plants in the Sustainable Natural Dyes workshop. Or learn to work with clay in the Let’s Create Our Own Dishes class.

The Jansen Art Center has a long history of supporting artists of all ages and skill levels. The Spring Break Camp is just one of many programs that are offered to encourage creativity and artistic expression in young people.
