Color Wheel Camps

Color Wheel Camps 

The Color Wheel mission is to encourage the growth and development of creative free thinking individuals. To this end, we provide safe, quality art based programs aimed at nurturing the whole child. Through the arts, we promote self discovery and the development of high self esteem while providing a solution for After School care.

Color Wheel Camps are art-based programs for school aged children 5-12 years old. The program operates from 9:00 – 4:00 with extended hours from 8:30 – 5:30, concurrent with the City of Decatur school calendar.

We offer a safe and unique full-day camp, child care experience. Focused on art exploration, each of our instructors is a degreed artist as well as a child care professional. Each staff member brings to Color Wheel a love for working with children, unique artistic talent, and a solid background in the childcare industry.

At Color Wheel, your child becomes a part of a young artist’s community who work and play together, helping each other grow into strong, socially conscious, free thinking individuals. Our artists work in a wide range of art areas from: drawing/painting, pottery, textiles, and mixed media for a balanced creative experience.
