What People Are Saying…
“I just wanted to say, thank you for the online art classes you provided! My six-year-old called it her favorite part of her day. She loved the birds and tulips in particular, and has been adding nice round tulips to many of her drawings since then. It warmed my heart to watch her enjoying the inspiration you provided.”
“I can’t say enough good things about this camp. We’ve tried several other camps – some technology-based and others not – but none has been as rewarding as Camp Captivate.”
