When quarantine first began, my family and I threw on our pajamas, binged our favorite TV shows and enjoyed not having to be tied to our normal daily routines. But as time went on, the walls started getting smaller and this full-time working Mom (and her teens) were getting stir crazy. I started looking for any outlets available for activities to break up the monotony.
Hold on to your hats, Mamas! I’m about to provide you with a solution! Recently, I was introduced to Art Camp 504 and I could mot be more impressed with the concept. Since 2016, Art Camp 504 has connected New Orleans youth with local working artists. But when the pandemic forced everyone to quarantine, the camp unveiled their online platform. Through Zoom, Art Camp 504 instructors provided live instructional classes in the arts providing relief to families struggling to find some sense of normalcy. Imagine the freedom of 90 uninterrupted minutes to get work done while the kids enjoy professional and personalized creative classes!
By providing online classes and hiring local, New Orleans based artists, Art Camp 504 has facilitated sharing New Orleans’ unique culture with kids in more than 36 states. From digital drawing to watercolor, and theater to cooking, Art Camp 504 has something for every interest. Better yet? Art Camp 504 registration is OPEN for their Virtual Spring Break Camps!
Two camp dates are available: March 29-April 2 and April 5-9, 2021. Your student (ages 6-15) will receive quality instruction in their field of choice from real working artists in a small class setting of not more than 6 students. Take some time to read about all of the classes available for Spring Break…you will be amazed at the variety. Let me know what you decide in the comments! Personally, I would love to take the Stop Motion Video class!
Not available for Spring Break? Art Camp 504 also offers weekly after school classes year round.
