Make an ice cream sundae from ingredients to yum!

Ice Cream Sundae




Join us for a sweet fall experience at our Ice Cream Parlor Camp! Together we will mix up some delicious tastes and smells, as we piece together the elements of an ice cream sundae – to enjoy in our “ice cream parlor” at the end of camp. Every child who participates in camp will leave with recipes and a satisfied grin.

*Please Note*: We will NOT be using conventional food coloring or corn syrup in any of our recipes.  More natural alternatives are available for both of those ingredients!

IMG_6323lasttryLocated in Boulder County, The Living Arts School is Colorado’s first folk school.  A folk school, also known as a craft school, is a place for “folks” of all ages to pursue a unique and life-changing education–one that focuses on the renewal of traditional living skills, crafts and music.  The modern-day application of these traditional folk arts represents a return to a simpler, more creative way of life.  When we take the time to make something with our hands, we find a delightful surprise: We are, through the process, more connected to ourselves, to our earth and to each other in the spirit of community.

Our holiday camps are adventures in folk arts and crafts for our young people, and serve to pass on the timeless and relevant traditions of the past, to the future.


Elizabeth Nova Scotia

Living Arts School’s Director Elizabeth Uhrich’s background is in education, and her journey includes co-founding and directing a progressive school for young children, teaching for 10 years and speaking at conferences on the topic of education.  For her, the folk school is a natural outbirth of her passion for education.  After all, “The hands built the head, not the other way around.” (Aonghus Gordan, Ruskin Mill Trust).  She holds a BA in Philosophy from Colorado College and an MA in Educational Psychology from CU Denver.  She also holds a Director’s Certification from the CDHS and a Colorado Teacher License.  She lives with her husband James and their small dog in Erie, and loves to be outdoors, baking or singing whenever she can.

Laurel NoyesRaised in the mountains of New Mexico, Lead Teacher, Laurel Noyes found her passion for nurture and nature, homesteading, and all things crafty.  After attending UNM for Elementary Education, she moved to Taos to supervise a Youth Conservation Corps. Teaching young minds about bettering their environment, and working hard for it, forever changed her outlook and teaching style. She wanted to teach kids to play in the dirt, grow food, and most of all fall in love with the great outdoors. She moved to Austin where she taught at a Waldorf inspired school, snagged two dogs and met her future husband.  They later moved to Brooklyn, and while great, it couldn’t compete with Colorado and the Rocky mountains. Here Laurel is often found knitting, canning, foraging, and volunteering with horses.  She lives with her little family in Old Town Lafayette and picked up a few chickens along the way.
