“I AM 25 Years of Creativity”
25 years ago Little Black Pearl Workshop opened its doors to teach Chicago youth the “Business of Art”. In celebration of our 25th anniversary our 2019 “Creativity Camp” will reflect the rich history of our summer program. Continuing fun activities such as weekly field trips and sports campers will also learn about the history of Little Black Pearl as they develop their skills in the areas of drawing, painting, mosaic, dance, technology, theatre and design. Professional teaching artists will inspire your child to experiment with materials, and try new techniques. Our end of camp celebration will allow our young artists to showcase their creative masterpieces in a special exhibition.
Creativity Camp is designed to serve rising first through eighth graders (ages 6 -14 years)
