Creating Space to discover the artist within
Mission Statement: To inspire, educate, and support people on their journey to discover the artist within, through hands on art practices leading to greater insight and learning in creating visual art.
Workshops for adults 15 years and older
This year we're celebrating our 29th year of inspiring, educating and helping students discover the amazing world of fine art and craft.
For the last 28 years children and adults from around the world and locally, have been coming to the Art Camp, learning about and creating paintings, sculpture, drawings, and high end craft.
There are students who have attended the Art camp and have graduated from the Ontario collage of Art and are now practicing artists.
The idea behind the Art Camp is to create a space for people to work with professional artists, using rich topics, good quality art materials, experiencing what it’s all about and making unique art in a studio setting surrounded by nature.
The Art Camp is run by Allycia Uccello a professional artist with of over 40 years’ experience, sharing her talents and skills with students of all ages both in her studio and schools throughout Ontario. She creates programs that are school wide covering several media in painting, murals, sculpture, drawing, glass work, fibre, printing, stage sets, and paper construction.
Currently Allycia will have completed 7 large installations and murals with students from jk/sk to grades 8 in the Toronto District School Board through 2019.
Peter Uccello is a craftsman and sculptor who will be running a series of programs in Sculpture. Students immerse themselves in the world of form, engineering, construction, physics, art, patterns, mathematics and much more.
The studio is located on 10280 Second Line, Campbellville, Ontario, in the Escarpment, on 43 acres of rolling fields, forests, ponds, and a creek. This is the perfect setting for participants to appreciate and enjoy the bounty of wildlife and scenery as inspiration to creating art. The studio setting is spacious with lots of interesting artwork on the walls and reference materials available for research. This environment sets the stage for inquiry, instruction, creativity and production, to invent new possibilities exploring a wide range of art practices.
The studio is located at 10280 Second Line, Campbellville, just north of Highway 401 off of the Guelph Line. When coming from Hwy. 401 turn off at the Guelph Line and go north to the 10th Side Rd. (there is a church on the north east corner) Turn left onto 10th Side Road which means you are going west, continue to the 4 way stop which is Second Line and turn right – north and the camp is about 1 Kilometre up the road on the left hand side. Continue down the driveway until you come to a green building and that is the studio. Parking can be on either side of the studio. Please drive slowly as there are many cars arriving at the same time.
