Summer Camp Afternoon Program Note: We have increased interest in an afternoon program for the two weeks of summer camp, July 18 through 29th. We will be designing a relaxed afternoon with lunch, restful activities, art projects, and games. The cost for extending the program to 3:00 will be an additional $50. Campers will need to bring a bag lunch. As we are shaping this afternoon program and the staffing around the age groups, we encourage interested families to contact Kathy Watko,, as soon as possible.


Did you know that some birds are painters? Others are weavers and sculptors? Come and explore the amazing world of birds. We will create our own flocks of birds from many mediums: felt, plaster, paper etc. We will also explore their habitats, create our own nests from natural materials, and learn fun and interesting facts about the local birdlife of Maine and from around the world.



Johanna Flath has been teaching art to all ages of students for the past decade. Her earliest influence of color and light was her island home of Bermuda. She moved to Maine with her husband ten years ago, fell in love with two hundred year old house in New Gloucester and have been proud stewards of it ever since. There she has ample space to dig around in the dirt and dabble in Biodynamic farming, paint in her studio and practice yoga. She frequently shows her work at galleries in Bermuda, and is teaching art at the Merriconeag High School, and has a BFA, Painting, Rhode Island School of Design.
