Cardboard Camp is an opportunity to explore corrugated cardboard at length. Students will learn about the many things we can do with this ordinary material by creating various projects such as self portraits and more. We’ll touch on some basic anatomy, color theory and perspective in this compact Cardboard Camp !

ALL of the cardboard we use in Camp is from local island businesses: Absolutely EVERYTHING we use at camp has been saved from the dump!
