Once upon a time, there was a camp where kids were free to be as creative as their imaginations could allow, where the world of visual arts was explored through adventurous, hands-on projects, where getting messy was actually encouraged.
Wait…this isn’t a fairy tale from some far-away land. This is Summer Camp at the Art Center! Join us as we use children’s books and illustrations as a springboard to explore art and imagination.
Camp runs in 11 one-week sessions from June 8 to August 21 and includes half days for children 4-5 years old and half and full days for children 6-13 years old. Under the guidance of professional artists, campers delve into imaginative age-appropriate projects while learning the fundamentals of drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, ceramics, metalwork, jewelry and more. At the end of each session, campers proudly display their work in an exhibit for families in our galleries. Kids leave camp more confident and social, and with skills and a love of art that they can draw on for the rest of their lives.
Learning comes easiest when kids are working on age-appropriate projects, so camp is broken down into different programs. Please register your child for the appropriate program based on the age they will be when the session begins.
