With a little more free time available in your child’s summer schedule, summer art camps provide the perfect opportunity to nurture their artistic talents. In addition to numerous studies suggesting that art camps enhance a child’s creativity, they also show that students who participate in these camps show better proficiency in languages and in math.

Learning about other cultures shouldn’t be confined to a textbook. Discovering other cultures can help children expand their imaginations and develop empathy, and can serve as a springboard to further knowledge. Luckily, parents have a wide variety of options to help their children have fun this summer while they learn about cultures from around the world through art.

For many years, parents looking for unique camps to stimulate their child’s imaginations and creativity have found Lakehill Summer Camps to be just the right place. Lakehill offers a variety of arts camps for all ages, many that focus on global cultures to inspire artistic creations. The names alone get your creative juices flowing: Finger-Painting through France, Meditative ArtsDoodles, Mandalas, and Zentangles, and Spice up Your Art. These camps take you from Europe to Asia to South America, with the unique cultures providing a backdrop for learning and inspiration. Projects could include finger paintings inspired by French masterpieces, mandalas based on Eastern symbols, or colorful cascarones from Latin American celebrations.
