Featured Camp of the Week: Children’s Healing Art Project

From our friends at Children’s Healing Art Project

Enroll your child in the camp voted Best Arts & Crafts Classes/Camps by PDX Parent readers!

There is still space in Children’s Healing Art Project (CHAP) Summer Art Workshops. Whether it’s Visual Arts, Sculptures and Structures, or Paint Exploration, your child will enjoy CHAP’s unique approach to art-making.

Let your child’s imagine soar! At CHAP, playfulness, experimentation, and creativity are emphasized. Projects are intentionally broad and open to interpretation so everyone is free to use each medium in a way that works for his or her unique abilities and interests.

Your child can explore:
• his or her own personal creativity
• new mediums and/or techniques
• ways to use everyday items in art
• and so much more!

To provide the ultimate experience, a series of guest artists – including Portland art icon, Mike Bennett – will lead art-making sessions along with CHAP Teaching Artist and staff, art students, and creative community volunteers. Every artist brings their own fresh approach to art-making which makes CHAP Summer Art Workshops dynamic and fun for everyone.

Each four-day workshop is a combination of virtual and in-person sessions. The first three days are conducted virtually, and the last day is hosted outside. Masks are required for in-person sessions and all art materials are included.

Looking for single day workshops? Check out CHAP Dailies where each day offers a different focus including:
• Print-making (Virtual)
• Art-in-Nature (In Person)
• Up-cycle Fest (In Person)
• Sewing & Stuffies (In Person)

Proceeds from Summer Art Workshops help fund CHAP’s mission of bringing healing art experience to children and families facing medical challenges…so you and your child will be making a difference by enrolling.
