What makes Aliki’s different from the rest:
Give your children the gift of creativity and self-confidence this summer. Our one-of-kind summer camps are both recreational and educational. Professional artists guide student artists in learning the fundamentals of drawing, painting and sculpting. Each camp is filled with engaging projects that are specialized and focused on skill development. In this process, students gain artistic confidence as well as improve their concentration, problem-solving and perseverance.
We enjoy meeting new students and parents at the studio (or at least chatting by phone) prior to camp registration to get to know each other and talk about our program. We offer a complimentary art evaluation/consultation to determine the best fit for each student by appointment only. Please call (403) 667-7020 or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to schedule a studio appointment. Camps are limited to only 8 students to allow the teacher to get to know the students well and provide individual mentoring. Returning or past students (alumni) of the studio are welcome to contact us for recommendations about the next step or may register directly online.
The entire camp is dedicated to artmaking with a brief, inspirational break – no filler activities are included. We use only high-quality materials to yield awesome results. A 15% sibling OR multi-camp discount is great for families. Refer a friend and you both earn $25 Creativity Cash towards your next art session with us! Creativity Cash is our way of saying, “Thank You!” for referring or being referred to Aliki’s Art House.
10 reasons why kids love to
learn to draw, paint or journal with us!
We believe that everyone CAN learn to draw (with just 1 hour of instruction). Interest is mandatory. Talent and experience are optional.
Students come in with their own interests and imagination and leave with a collection of artwork + set of materials all their own.
Students gain confidence in their drawing skills, enjoy the process of creativity, and are inspired to continue on their own.
Students gain an art education as well as summer recreation.
Our exceptional staff are professional artists with a passion for art education.
Students receive lots of individual mentoring. Maximum 8 students per camp.
Our studio is inviting, orderly and inspiring with lots of natural light. We’re located in quaint neighbourhood with beautiful tree-lined sidewalks and green spaces nearby to take an outdoor break.
A variety of high-quality art supplies are included.
Our pre-registration consultation/assessment ensures the camps are the right fit for students.
Student artwork is on display through out camp to honour the students’ achievements. Our popular Gallery Walk (if possible at the end of the camp) is a valuable experience for young artists and proud parents.

Here's what students
have said about our camps
“I thought the camp was fun and I had enough time to finish all the projects. I thought all the projects were explained very well and I liked that we got to come up with our own ideas”
“My teachers don’t only know lots about art, but about our brains too!”
“It’s really different from school because I really learned a lot about using different mediums and techniques.”
“The teacher gave very constructive feedback.”
“At first, I didn’t want to go to camp because I didn’t have any friends to go with but on the second day, I realized that drawing with peaceful music and quiet is really relaxing and fun! I really enjoyed camp.”
“I thought this camp was fantastic and fun! I loved the way we were free to make our own creations in a structured way. I would totally go do the camp again.”
“Awesome art camp full of surprising, fun masterpieces to make and create.”
“What I like about this art camp is shading with charcoal because it makes it really 3D.”
“I loved it! I never expected it to be so great!”
“Very fun and interesting, this is one of the best camps I’ve been to.”
“It was cool and I thought that everybody was nice. The art looks hard but actually, once you get to do it, you feel proud of yourself. The music was really soothing too. Also, I thought even the snack break was cool too because we go to the park, we get a lot of time to eat and make friends.”
