Unleash Your Inner Artist!
Make art and new friends at Practically Pikasso! Pikasso camps offer a variety of fun, hands-on activities that encourage creative thinking, bold art-making, and playful collaboration.
The Pikasso Camp Experience
During the day campers will learn various art processes (such as: pottery techniques, clay handbuilding, watercolor and acrylic painting, etc.) Through the art processes they will use the camp theme to create art through both teacher-guided and self-guided experiences. In addition, campers will have opportunities during their day for creative expression in the use of games and themed activities.
Safety is our #1 priority
All Pikasso staff have Level 2 Background Clearance. A CPR and First Aid Certified staff member is onsite during camp hours. Our camps exceed all necessary precautions based on CDC and Pinellas County guidelines to assure the health and safety of our campers and staff.

Camp Focus and Experience Expectations
While developing your childs skills and knowledge, each week of camp will focus on a specific “theme”. Camp Projects and Mediums vary per day. We can not guarantee your child will complete any specific project. This is a Creative camp featuring various projects, not all pottery painting. Projects will all be instructor led. Campers will experience a variety of art mediums including pottery, clay, water color, acrylic painting, glass painting, oil pastels, chalk drawing and more. Through much of the day our campers will focus on the hands on process of the art projects. Children will have the opportunity to explore, experience and enjoy various art mediums with the focus being on the process versus the finished project. We encourage you to discuss these processes with your children. Dry, non fired pieces may go home each day with your camper. All fired art will be ready to pick up in 2 weeks on the Friday. We encourage you to share your child’s excitement when they bring home their works of art. All fired pottery is food safe, but should be hand washed. Camp bags must be picked up within 30 days Any camp projects not picked up by this date become property of Practically Pikasso.
