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

{Fashion Week Prep Secrets}

People ask us what are the Biggest Fashion Week faux pas: We don't believe in fashion faux pas, everyone should feel free to experiment, especially during fashion week. It's a celebration of creativity! It is not about the fashion or the greatest styles it is about the smiles on our girls faces at the moment they realize they are beautiful.

Fourth Fashion: Patriotic Apparel for the Fashionista!

This year, dress in the spirit of the holiday, don't just wave a flag and carry sparklers as your "accessories." Remember, you don't have to necessarily wear red, white, and blue--you can wear a combination of any two. As always, have fun with your fashion and remember the fireworks aren't the only thing that will be shining bright on July 4th!

Happy 4th !
