Each week is designed around a theme and allows the children to take initiative, develop their own ideas, try new things, work collaboratively with others, and practice their drawing as well as leadership skills! In the past they have designed fashion collections, theater performances, cities on wheels, craft markets, underwater worlds and many more unique projects.

Dear Parents,
We are thrilled to announce our Summer 2015 Creative StretchArt and Yoga Camp!

Marina Shterenberg, an artist, and Elena Shevtsov, a yoga teacher, come together to offer three weeks of unforgettable experience for children 5 and up that will open their hearts and minds. We develop innovative projects that inspire children's creativity and help them bring to life their unique ideas. The art projects are directed by children themselves and supported by us, and have included in the past dome architecture, murals, a mobile city, paper fashion parade, shadow puppet theater, claymation, and many more. You can see some of the past projects at, or (scroll to the bottom of the page for pics)


This year we will be running the camp at the home of Elena in Frisco, TX, our amazing yoga teacher. We will need to limit the number of students that we are able to teach to 15 this year, so please do not wait until the last minute to register your child!
