Summer Art Camps & Classes

Summer art camps allow students to pursue one area of art in some detail or explore new areas. Our kids’ art program provides a rich variety of art-making opportunities for students age 4 ½ – 18 and includes art for preschoolers, fine art camps, teen camps, workshops and classes.

Summer Camps – Full Week

Explore the full spectrum of artistic expression in our week-long art camps for kids and teens. From drawing still lifes to sculpting with wood and clay, or experimenting with mixed media and printmaking, the possibilities are endless. Our relaxed, fun, and social atmosphere encourages kids to pursue their own creative bent and focus on a single project to completion. 

This summer, camps will feature a unique theme. Kids registering for Full Day Camp, Morning Camp and Afternoon Camp can immerse themselves in artistic adventures during Discovery Week, embark on a creative journey in Time Trek Week, craft captivating narratives in Storytelling Week, and unleash their inner artist-scientist in Invent and Experiment Week. Teens enrolling in Teen Camp have the opportunity to select from various themes tailored to specific interests. This empowers teens to personalize their camp experience by choosing a theme that fits their own preferences and passions.

Each theme promises a different experience so choose one–or register for all four themes for an unforgettable summer of art exploration. To avoid project repetition, sign up for different themed weeks. Extended care is available.

Full Day Camp

Full day camps from 9 AM to 3 PM are offered for kids ages 7-11. The daily activity schedule includes four full hours of art making and 2 hours of other activities with snack and lunch provided by parents.

Teen Camp

Teen Camp is offered for teens ages 12-17. Choose from four different themes: Drawing, Painting, Mixed Media and Sculpture, and Mixed Media and Printmaking. The daily activity schedule includes a full day of art making with breaks taken at the student’s discretion. Parents are responsible for providing snack and lunch.

Summer Session – 1 day per week

One day per week art classes throughout summer offer students an experience similar to that of our school year program. For instance, a child could continue with Art Exploration or chose to advance to Fine Art Fundamentals as a trial to see how they might like it. Above all, as teachers and students we cherish the relaxed summer atmosphere and use it as a springboard for creativity.

Dates for Summer Session will be announced at a later date.
