World Building Camp—On-Campus (Ages 10-13)

Work alongside fellow campers to imagine, design, and then create the various elements of a brand new fantastical world full of your own characters, wildlife, structures, histories, and more. This mixed-media course will feature projects in illustration and comics, sculpture, 3-D modeling, and creative writing. Visits to the Art Institute of Chicago will feature an exploration of artists who have also created their own worlds in celebrated fine art across history.

Don't forget! We offer optional aftercare for campers for an additional hour at the end of the day full of art making, games and outdoor time, as well as some much needed end-of-day relaxation. To purchase aftercare for this course, add this aftercare course to your cart before checking out!

Registration for this course is closed.
