Newmarket tweens and teens can learn lifelong art skills at summer camp

If you’re a tween or teenager looking to express their artistic flair, you might want to visit an open day in Newmarket on July 20.

The Art Journalism Training School hosts open days to provide information about its August Fine Arts Summer Camp for ages nine to 12 and ages 13 to 18.

The camp runs until the last week of August. It was created by Cassandra Russell, an artist for over 20 years. In the camp, students learn creative tools and techniques that they will take with them for the rest of their art-making days.

The multimedia camp is an opportunity for self-discovery, mindfulness and personal growth, and offers various artistic activities such as artistic journaling, watercolour, collage and painting on canvas in groups.

Russell has taught at St. Andrew’s College, Country Day School, Alt Summit in Palm Springs, CA, and other adult art schools and groups. She has also taught her courses on self-care and art journaling at different universities, and is a motivational speaker on self-care, creativity, mindfulness, and art therapy.

The open house will be held at the Maker’s Mark at 16655 Yonge St. on July 20 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
