Fine Arts Summer Camp in the City 2019

Complementing the National Gallery of Canada’s Paul Klee exhibit (through March 17th), is St Paul Fine Arts: Summer Camp in the City—Paul Klee!

This is a 3 day (July 17-19) intensive art camp (9-Noon) for ages 7-13 led by Ottawa-based, professional mixed media artist, Karen Goetzinger. Karen has taught and led workshops internationally, in Canada, the US, and Australia. We are thrilled to welcome Karen back for our third year of exploratory art, immersing ourselves in the work of Paul Klee while creating original works. 

Each day, children will devote themselves to learning and applying a different elements of Klee’s work, take a few water balloon breaks along the way, and open and close with a Christ-centered devotion, re-cap, and prayer.

St Paul offers this program at a minimal cost (a $25 registration fee) to allow all children to benefit from the wonder and joy of quality, art programming. Space is limited, so register your child Here: 




Hear some of the reviews of parents and children of our past camps!

“This is a treasure! My youngest boy attended their first year and continues to point out Kandinsky-inspired paintings two years later. The camp not only teaches technique and history, it helps instill a love of art—both creating it and experiencing it in even the youngest of children. This is a now a MUST for us every summer.”

“I love this camp. I have always loved art but it is so great to get to do it with lots of new friends and not just on my own. The water balloon games are really fun too!”

“I had so much fun drawing and painting while learning about an artist. It was really cool.”

“I loved that we got to receive our own private art lesson from Karen before camp even started so that we could better work with the kids. Learning about a specific artist and getting to try out their style was so much fun. And seeing the finished products at the end of the three days was truly inspiring”
