KidSpirit partners with some amazing programs during the summer to give your child the chance to experience various summer programs in Corvallis. Your child will be able to enroll in one of our partner programs for the morning sessions and then come to KidSpirit in the afternoon! 

The Craft Center

Sponsored by the OSU Craft Center, this 2-week, half day camp will engage student artists by exploring various mediums and techniques. Campers will rotate between two studios each day, learning from two experienced art teachers. Half of the class day will be spent using various 2D and 3D art techniques and mediums.

The second half will focus on ceramics techniques including hand-building methods and learning how to throw on the pottery wheel. 

Artists will check in at KidSpirit, and be escorted to the Craft Center.
