This summer the Jackalopes are heading into the Lanark Highlands to host an the MERA Summer Arts Camp for Kids.  The camp will run for one week, July 25 - 29, for students aged 7 to 14 (ish).  Camp details are available by contacting Jo Bali  at Jackalope Farm and Eco-Art Studio or you can contact and register directly for the MERA Camp with Marilyn at merachoolhouse@bell.net.


Jackalope Eco-Art Studio is dedicated to providing art classes rich in a wide variety of art experiences that aim to boost creativity and a love of Art making.  We paint in various media, draw in pencil, ink, charcoal, conté, markers, crayon, and coloured pencil.  We paint in  acrylic, watercolour and more. We  make sculpture, we make art with clay, felt, paper, found objects and more. We make animated films, take photographs and make prints!  Each camp is slightly different in flavour as we try to cater to the interests of the students.  We are also a planet-friendly studio aiming to use natural, biodegradable, up-cycled, re-cycled, and donated items whenever possible. 

Instruction is based on principals from several art programs combined to create a warm, relaxed and attentive environment where the basics of art making are learned in a stress free and refreshingly creative way.   Students are encouraged to take tools learned in short formal  instruction sessions and apply them in their own creative and expressive way throughout the program.  A love of Art, art history and art making provides a lifetime of creativity, relaxation and self expression.  Colour outside the lines!

We encourage people to call us on the telephone if you have more that one or two brief questions.
