The 2018 Noctiluna Summer Camp will be held at the lovely, green, Oakton UUCF campus on Hunter Mill Road. Enrollment is open and online right here!!

For the past five years, I have been running full day Visual Arts summer camps for elementary school students, in and around Vienna VA. They are process oriented camps that focus on critical skills such as problem solving, creative thinking, teamwork and negotiation, in addition to teaching art and design skills.

I am a firm believer in learning through play and discovery, and so the camps focus as much on play as they do on art. We spend a lot of time outdoors, and have a very flexible day that is driven by the students’ needs. Kids don’t get enough unscheduled recess during the school year, so I encourage as much time outdoors as possible, and let  students make independent decisions about their work and day as much as possible.
The camp caters to different learning styles and abilities, and is a safe and friendly environment to explore ideas.
This has been very successful so far, and I see the same students return year after year with friends in tow.
