Summer Camp

Summer Camp



Campers from New Orleans, Vancouver, Minneapolis, Brooklyn, and Paris lived an art life with
native California campers at Oxbow this summer.

In our Fundamentals classes, campers explored a dynamic range of themes and techniques such as Cute vs Creepy, Elevating the Mundane, Animal Identities, Blind Fold Tour Mapping, and completed a Cardboard Shoe Challenge!

Along with our campfire rituals, our Co-Curricular Program featured a Summer Art Olympics, Surrealist Night, Alter Ego Fashion Show, and Inspiration Nights. Campers also developed new skills in our afternoon arts workshop series, participating in Indian Fold Dancing, Boxing, Yoga, Bookbinding, And Cyanotypes (just to name a few)!


During the 2nd half of camp, students devoted their studio time to Final Projects. Honing in on personally relevant subject matter and taking risks, campers' projects were remarkably thought provoking. These can be viewed on our Facebook page (along with images of day-to-day camp life).

Registration for our 2015 program will open in mid-October. Additional program information can be found under the Summer Camp tab on the school website at Please contact or call 707.592.6295 with inquiries.

I look forward to next summer!
