Summer Camps ARTifact San Francisco and Marin


Our heART is here in San Francisco and summer is just around the corner. We're feelin' groovy.

Our summer lineup of peace, love, and heART is ready!

Camp will be held at our Cow Hollow studio and the Presidio of San Francisco. Each camp will run in 3-week sessions






Week 1: PEACE

 Right now, we could all use a little more _______.  Join us as we refill our buckets with a whole lot of heART and soul. Over the years, our little studio has brought an overwhelming amount of joy to our community. Join us as we practice gratitude through daily projects focused on using ART as a tool to connect ourselves to one another and to our community in a deeply meaningful way. We will put our practice of ART into play by surprising a few members in our community with works of heART (such as Miss Mary, our hardworking mail carrier!)

Week 2: LOVE

"My love waits there in San Francisco, above the blue and windy sea. 
When I come home to you, San Francisco, your golden sun will shine for me..."
In 1962, Tony Bennet left his heart in San Francisco. Marching to the beat of its own drum, the music made with heart now the filled the hearts of the masses. Fast forward five years to 1967. The Beatles released "All You Need is Love." San Francisco couldn't have agreed more. From daisy chains and tie dye to the popular songs we still cherish today, Summer of Love is here to stay.

*Each week, students will be creating a variety of mixed-media works of art inspired by the themes listed.

Week 3: heART

With a song in our heART, we'll climb to the top of the world (okay, maybe not quite to the top...but it sure feels like it's close...) to discover one of the most famous Hearts in San Francisco. On the way, we'll explore the hidden (and not so hidden) works of heART created by an iconic San Francisco artist in response to the Pandemic. Together we'll create large (and small) public installations and sidewalk murals, finishing the week with a ceremony of colors inspired by the Holi Festival of Love.

Cancellation Policy

We know you might need more time to plan your summer, so we created a Straight Forward and Transparent Cancellation Policy:

-Register now, but pay later. Up to 10 days later! If you decide to cancel your seat during the 10 day grace period, no tuition is due but we would love a heads-up so we can give another camper the opportunity to join.

-Baked into tuition is a non-refundable $167 registration fee (for Private Pods, the 'registration fee' is the $2500 nonrefundable deposit)

-Individual camp tuition is 100% refundable if canceled more than 20 days before the start of camp, minus the registration fee

-Individual camp tuition is 50% refundable if canceled more than 15 days before the start of camp, minus the registration fee
-Camp tuition is nonrefundable if canceled less than 14 days before the start of camp

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept drop-in students or guarantee we will be able to transfer students enrollment in one camp to another. Therefore, families should plan to remain enrolled in the camp they registered for and follow the cancellation and refund guidelines above if their selected camp no longer works for their schedule. No transfers of any kind will be possible if that camp session has already begun.
