ARTBASH Camp Avatar

ARTBASH Camp Avatar is a four-day art programme filled with character, creation and awesome art-making, inspired by identity stories and bright ideas.

Our camps will run in Hackney & Barking and Dagenham (LBBD) and are suitable for 5 – 11 years (in Hackney & LBBD) and 12 – 14 years (in LBBD only).

Each day young artists will take part in three different exciting art workshops including some fun dance. We will be inspired by contemporary artists including Toyin Ojih Odutola inspiring us to delve into our own fantasy worlds and develop spectacular iconic characters.

Children with be placed into small age-appropriate groups. A mid-morning snack will be provided and please bring a healthy pack lunch. We will picnic in the marshes if weather allows. Dress for mess!

“Our boys (11,9,5) love ARTBASH Camp so much that they talk about it all year round. The first thing that I hear at the pick up: “Today was fantastic!” I can’t say enough greatness about the staff, their energy is abundant & very encouraging. Kids love working with different materials, exploring ideas and learning new methods. They can’t wait for the next year! Thank you so much for running such a wonderful programme.”
