Art for Kids

Greenstone Art CampThe Children’s Art Camp was started in 2001. Children ages 7-12 are welcome to join art instructors with a combined five decades of experience. Three days of projects may include stepping stones, pottery, carving, stained glass, painting, drawing and weaving and ends with a grand finale show.

Greenstone’s Art camp is held every June on the shores of Miners Lake at Ely Arts and Heritage Center in Miners Dry of the Pioneer Mine Complex. Contact us if you’d like your child to experience the best 3 days of summer. Watch for this year’s dates in our events calendar. We allow a maximum of 50 spaces, so please get your reservation in quickly.

The Holiday Workshop involves building frosted houses and making Christmas ornaments. Fun for children of all ages and grown-ups. This candy and frosting-filled workshop happens in November. (And parents and grandparents enjoy it as much as the kids.) Be sure to contact us if you have a child who is interested. For the past two years the children have made decorations for the Ely community Holiday Tree in Whiteside Park. It’s a tradition of little hands giving back to the big hands of the community in a big way. Watch for news releases and check our calendar for more information about this fun time.

Every student is a star. When Ely schools started losing some of their funding and had cutbacks, Ely Greenstone Public Art saw a need. We volunteered to bring in top notch artists to fill the gap. Extremely popular with the teachers and the students, Ely Greenstone Public Art teaches and then showcases each students unique talent. Each of the two 6th grades complete a project.
