Summer Camp

Ready for some creative summer fun? Join us for our Summer Art Camp!

In our "Artists from Around the World" Summer Camp, campers will discover various artists and art movements, ancient to contemporary, and be inspired by cultures from around the world.

Every week will feature a new theme to be explored through a variety of artistic and fun activities designed to develop creativity and imagination (painting, drawing, sculpting, mixed media, games and creative crafts).

Participants will take home two different artworks and one craft most days. All skill levels are welcome!

All art supplies are provided. To increase handling safety, there will be no sharing of supplies. Participants will each have a dedicated set of supplies to use for the week labeled with their name.  Please "dress for a mess" – many of the quality art supplies we will be using may not wash out.

Outdoor play is also on the schedule depending on the weather (sunscreen and sunhats needed). Games used indoors will be disinfected before and after each use.

Masking will not be mandatory, but is still encouraged as we are making every effort to keep everyone as safe as possible under the circumstances. There will be two snack breaks and a lunch break outside, weather permitting, or in the studio.

Camp size is limited to 12 participants to ensure proper individual attention.
