Please check back in January 2017 for our Summer Art Camps 2017 schedule!

Summer Art Camps 2016:

Weekly summer art camps for children and teens ages 5 – 15 are designed to stimulate creative expression through projects and activities that change each week. All sessions are led by professional teaching artists, tailored to a specific age group and designed to deepen a child’s appreciation and understanding of the visual arts. No prior experience is required for any of our camps.

Mixed Media Mornings- 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM*
Students will engage in two-and three-dimensional creative exploration through painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, mixed media, and more. New projects are introduced each week so that students may register for as many weeks as they would like without repetition.

Afternoon Art- 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM*
Young artists ages 5-8 will enjoy themed programs that change each week while 9-11 year olds and teens will explore a single medium in depth.

Afternoon Pottery- 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM*
The Center offers the area’s only week-long summer ceramics camps in a state-of-the-art studio. Students develop wheel-throwing, hand-building, and glazing skills. Three afternoon sessions are offered for each age group over the course of the summer.

* For a full day of camp, please register for a Mixed Media Morning session and an Afternoon Art/Pottery session.

Full-day campers (those registered for a morning and afternoon camp) will have a supervised lunch period from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM at no extra charge.

Art Camps for Kids with ASD and Other Special Needs:
During the week of July 18 – July 22, 2016 we will have two morning camps specifically for kids with ASD and other special needs.

There is a $20 sibling discount for two children signed up for the same week of camp. Call the office to apply the Sibling Discount.
