Summer Camp Details: Gina's week-long Outdoor Painting Art Camps allow students to play through painting! They are encouraged to develop and discover the excitement and freedom of painting and seize the instinctual urge to experiment with color, shapes, and texture.


The painting sessions include art based on nature, art history, and Tahoe history - all while exploring this beautiful historic site and lake shore. All week students have so much fun painting on the lawn enjoying Tahoe summer.
