Before it was discovered that refrigerators were a safe method for storing food, they mainly functioned as convenient spaces for tacking up kids' hand-drawn pictures of food. Nourish the Fra Angelico of your fridge with today's Groupon: for $82, you get enrollment in a one-week children's art camp from KidzArt (a $165 value). The value of this Groupon may be applied to a fall class session if summer camp enrollment is full.
KidzArt boosts confidence and creativity in youngsters with art-education programs, exposing children to a variety of mediums, which encourages them to produce their own original artwork. Scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon on summer weekdays, the one-week art camps help tots and tweens entering first through sixth grades build a foundation of basic drawing skills that they then implement into art pieces centered around two themes. The KidzArt Animal Style: Where Art Goes Wild! camp, scheduled for July 18–22 or August 1–5, puts pastels, paint, and bendable substances into critter-loving little hands to craft animal-themed artwork. Water, Water, Everywhere!, scheduled for July 11–18 or July 24–28, stokes aquatically inclined imaginations with projects that might involve designing model waterparks and underwater vehicles. At the end of each morning, parents can return to marvel at their offspring's mini masterpieces. All art supplies are included, allowing students to leave their blocks of marble and unicorn-bristle paintbrushes at home.
