Davidson Art Camp

Davidson Art Camp was created by two teachers, who after becoming new moms, gained a new outlook on education. Together we are optimists, go-getters and concerned citizens who share a desire to escape the boundaries of the classroom. As friends and as mothers, we hope for our own children's future, and strive to make the world a better place, one camp at a time. Our mission is to provide high quality, curriculum-based camps that are responsive to the needs of the children in our community. Through multi-faceted art projects, it is our goal to educate and intrinsically motivate children to nurture, appreciate and respect human diversity and their environment. As our camps evolve, our values stay the same: to teach and inspire children in ways that promote personal growth and address the needs of their community. What more can we say? We love what we do. - Jennifer & Kristin

No Hall Pass Needed!

With these latest fashion trends you will be sure to rock the hallways with style.

Trend 1: Jade, Mustard, and Rust Hues

Every season has its hottest colors, and this year it’s all about jade green, mustard yellow, and rusty orange.

Trend 2: Camo Print

Camouflage prints are in for the fall.

Trend 3: Peplum Silouettes
A peplum silouette fans out at your waist, giving your body an hourglass shape. You can find lots of dresses, skirts, and tops tailored this way right now, since peplum is a hot trend for fall.

Trend 4: Plaids and Polka Dots

These prints are practically seasonal classics —  Here are some pieces we love:

Trend 5: Colored Pants

Rainbow-hued pants popped up last year and are back again this season. They’re a great way to add interest to an outfit, and they’re the perfect way to get out of the blue jean rut.

Trend 6: Chunky Sweaters

Back for another season are our favorite chunky sweaters. Here are some hot picks:

Where to search for those serendipitous items that help express your individual character? On any given day you might find us looking through racks of clothes at Salvation Army or Goodwill.  We love thrift stores! Especially, finding that one of a kind look that can not be found in the mall.   Avoid the crowds of shoppers at the malls buying the same looks.  Embark on this fun adventure and you may experience your very own serendipitous moment.
{Good Luck Shopping}
