Culinary Arts

The plate is our canvas in this culinary arts camp. In our camp, the food is not just for taste, students will explore design techniques with our instructor to create visually appealing edible masterpieces. The chemistry behind cooking will be reviewed in this camp as we sample unique flavor combinations. Projects will include presentation design, tapas, gourmet dining, main course recipe samples, chocolate sculpting, and etiquette application. Students will also have the opportunity to incorporate traditional artistic mediums during the planning process and utilize new technology for their presentations. Photographs of each design will be taken during camp to build a portfolio of the work completed.

For safety reasons, the Culinary Arts Camp can not accommodate students with severe allergies and dietary restrictions. If you are still interested in signing up your student please register and send an email to with your student’s allergy and dietary restrictions for review.


The SBDAC instructors are professional artists and educators that have been a part of the local art community of SWFL for over 15 years. Their creative combination will ensure a week full of unique learning and fun activities!
