Amazing Arts Camp or Class
Winner: Seattle ReCreative
Winner Seattle ReCreative attracted your votes for its art classes and camps, which emphasize process over result. Kids already are explorers who like to experiment, and Seattle ReCreative gives them the tools, materials — lots of them recycled — and the space to unleash their creativity. Among summer camp themes is one that focuses on constructing rockets, marble runs and kaleidoscopes, while another combines art history with making art, and each day includes outside time if weather permits. Seattle ReCreative offers workshops and programs for kids and adults all year long.
Arts Aloft earned your votes for its classes, which let kids ages 4–12 experience the pleasure of artistic experience while learning the techniques of a grand master. Summer camp themes revolve around topics that kids love, including The Magic Tree House, Percy Jackson, Minecraft and Harry Potter.
Your votes showed high regard for Early Masters Art School, an art history school for kids ages 8 and older in Seattle. Summer camps and workshops in art history and painting focus on myriad artists and styles, and students bring home wall-ready masterpieces for their adoring (parent) audience.
Parents rave about the interactive learning, music and arts programs offered at Illumination Learning Studio. Illumination offers a compelling cultural, performing and fine arts curriculum, which includes instruction in music, drama, voice, art, yoga and language.
Parents and kids love the three-week sessions at Summer Fun, a performing and visual arts day camp for kids ages 7–12, with locations in various Seattle schools. One parent testimonial reads, “They are able to harness the energy and passion of the kids. The production at the end of the three-week camp will astonish you with humor, dance, puppets, costumes and music.”
