What a special summer this year !

Due to the uncertainties of running a in-studio summer camp this year, we have come up with a plan to go virtual ! Check it out

Everyday is a new experience

No repeat of projects in the whole summer

A day in Pencil Summer camp

EACH DAY campers are creating 3 individual projects (clay sculpture, painting and craft) and a group project!

As we never repeat themes in the summer.  EACH DAY they experience something brand new!

Guided in step-by-step instructions, learn both new and traditional ways of painting and drawing with different mediums!

Expand your artistic experience to the vast field of crafts. Whether it's 3D paper sculpture,  or dioramas, paper will never look the same again!

Improve the knowledge of three dimensional shapes and composition, and build stronger hand eye coordination

Learn to work together and cooperate to create something big like a restaurant or dinosaur together and play inside your creation with your team!





Markham Studio (HB)

Unit 6, 5 McIntosh Dr.

Aurora Studio (2B)

Unit 1, 38 Wellington St. E

Every theme is an opportunity to learn something new! Try something different, and expand your child's horizons! Pencil projects are fun AND educational!
