Registration is open for 2020 camp! 

Different Canvas is a FREE one day camp for 8th-12th graders on July 29 from 11-4. This camp is open to all genders and all races, though it is curated for the youth of color experience. We will spend the day exploring healing, identity, and community through art. We will specifically be exploring what it means to heal from the impacts of historic and ongoing racism and marginalization. 

We will have workshops with visiting artists, group discussions, games, and lots of food! Click here to register! The deadline to register is Monday, July 27.

Coronavirus precautions: Due to coronavirus, we are offering a one day camp instead of week long and keeping the numbers really low- 7 campers and 3 adults. The camp will be held outside in the open air. We will ask everyone to wear masks, use hand sanitizer and hand washing liberally, and physically distance as much as possible. All snacks will be individually wrapped, and we won’t be sharing any supplies.
