Developing fine motor skills, enhancing creativity, calming stress, and promoting problem-solving — the benefits of an artistic life make a long list! Take advantage of the summer months to enhance your child’s life with an Artshine summer camp. Your budding artists will thrive as they have a chance to create and play when school is out. (And you can save 15% with code ‘familyfun15’!)

Although sometimes considered an extra, the artistic world is vital for emotional and mental well-being, as it can positively impact kids and teens. The founder of Artshine, Paul Field, is an artist and entrepreneur whose background in social work gave him first-hand experience with the positive work of art education in the life of a youth. Artshine programs use themes kids are familiar with, taught by instructors who guide them while allowing students to explore their creativity.
