Spring Break Art Camp On Mt. Helix

MT. HELIX -- Following a successful fall run, Art Smarts and Mt. Helix Park are partnering up again this spring to bring a one-of-a-kind kids’ art camp to East County. From March 30 through April 3, Art Smarts, which hosts after-school art programs throughout San Diego, will be offering Art In The Park - at Mt. Helix Park for kids ages 5 to 12.

The camp coincides with the La Mesa Spring Valley and San Diego School District’s spring break and gives kids the opportunity to develop their creative skills from atop Mt. Helix Park with its inspirational views that span the entire county and beyond the border.

Penelope Quirk, the founder of Art Smarts, Inc. has been bringing art to local kids for the past 10 years with her after-school program in 21 schools throughout San Diego. Lessons for the spring camp will use primarily oil pastels and watercolors and will vary from animal portraits to cartooning and even landscapes. The camp is expanding its hours to include a full-day camp option. Art In The Park camp fees for each child are $150 for half-day camp (9am until noon) and $275 for full-day camp (9am until 3pm).
