Creating a masterwork of art can be like wandering through a maze: after a lengthy period of reflection and contemplation, you’ll still probably starve. Appreciate the figurative risks and transcendent joys of artistic creativity with today’s Groupon: for $129, you get a one-week summer art camp for youths aged 5–15 at Fibonacci School of Art and Design in Yorba Linda (a $319 value, includes $20 one-time summer camp registration fee, but does not include supply fee of $30).
The experienced staff at Fibonacci School of Art and Design enlightens fledgling Monets in clay and sculpture, painting, fashion design, and cartooning through four week-long summer camps. Students can participate in the five-day sessions, held the weeks of June 27, July 11, July 18, and July 25 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Camps consist of morning and afternoon sessions and can include instruction on clay and design, in which students create 3-D projects from clay, wood, and other materials, as well as fashion-design classes, in which pint-sized Chanels can develop their own garment lines and delve into fashion history.
Let kids revel in the art of cartooning, through which they can recreate favorite characters through drawing and painting, or release their inner Bob Ross with watercolors, acrylics, and oil paints. Kids will learn step by step how to nurture their budding imaginations with cooing words of encouragement, baby bottles of oil paint, and spoonfuls of charcoal dust. Be sure to reserve your child's spot by May 1, 2011.

Fibo Kids Art Academy
Fibo Kids Art Academy’s instructors teach kids aged 4–18 the finer points of art with the Fibonacci method, crafting individual curricula within a peer setting, bolstered by doses of art history. They tailor the lessons to each student's interests, strengths, and weaknesses, placing kids in small groups for creative interaction with their peers.
To build a foundation for their skills, the instructors engage youngsters in in-depth art-history lessons that expose them to the paintings, drawings, and techniques of both past and current masters from movements such as impressionism and cubism. In addition to year-round afterschool classes, the academy offers one-week intensive summer camps that cover topics such as fashion design, anime and cartooning, and drawing on a sibling's face while he or she sleeps.
