Finding heART in nature.
Truckee Summer Camp
Dance, art, poetry, & creative fun inspired by and housed in nature.
Throughout the week, campers will connect to the natural environment around them, using the beauty found there as a foundation for their creative expression. We'll explore and experiment with words, watercolors, acrylics, creative movement, and organic materials.
Health & safety for all is a priority. The group is limited to 15 campers & we will operate in compliance with all CDC recommendations.

Sara, founder of Dark Fox Creative, is an artist and illustrator who embraces two unique styles of art with realistic graphite black and white wildlife illustrations as well as vibrant watercolors. Her artwork is inspired by the great outdoors and her love for the wilderness, mountains and wildlife near her cabin in Truckee, CA.
On any given day she can either be found walking outdoors or sitting at the drawing desk in her art studio near Donner lake. Her creative partners are always nearby in the form of a mug of coffee, her sweet pups, and occasionally a bit of dark chocolate.
Sara’s hope is to create fine art that connects people from all walks of life with the wilderness. Something that makes them think of an experience they had or simply a kinship with an animal or in nature, a feeling of freedom or wildness, and a sense of belonging within their environment.
Sara is also an adult and pediatric orthopedic Doctor of Physical Therapy. In addition to drawing, she enjoys dance, camping, kayaking, learning new things and sharing her enthusiasm for the visual arts with others.
