Creative kids are invited to participate in the unique summer camps at 4Cats.

Kids get messy at 4Cats camps in Nelson

Nelson's 4 Cats Arts Studio is offering unique summer camps for creative kids.

Looking for a brand new summer activity for your child?

For the first time in Nelson, 4Cats Arts Studio is offering weekly art camps for children aged five to 12. Nelson’s 4Cats is a quality art studio that uses professional materials, boasts a highly-trained staff, and provides a creative, stimulating, and energetic environment for your children to create their masterpieces.

“We’ve seen some amazing art come out of this place already,” says Eli Geddis, the head summer camp curator. “And we almost always have room for more kids.”

Some of the summer highlights so far have been abstract expressionist camp, where children are free to explore their messy sides with some paint splattering; Robert Bateman camp, which produces many wild animal paintings; stop motion animation camp, which results in some of the most zany mini claymation movies ever put to film; and painting, puppets and sculpture camp, the best of all worlds.

4Cats is located at 524A Victoria Street or visit their website at 4cats.com/nelson to sign your children up. Camps go to the last week of August, so there is still plenty of time to join.

Camps run every week Monday to Thursday for three hours each day.
