SUMMER ART CAMPWant to know what it is like to create a masterpiece in a real art studio alongside an actual working artist, and then exhibit your creations in a gallery with all of your new friends? This is the Main Line Art Center Camp experience! Each week-long session introduces young artists to a variety of age-appropriate materials, techniques, and artistic concepts through imaginative projects designed to tap into each child’s innate creativity. In a social and nurturing environment, young artists explore drawing, painting, ceramics, jewelry and metals, printmaking, digital media, and more, all while developing crucial life-skills like critical-thinking and problem-solving. Camp is broken down into age groups with low teacher-to-student ratios to ensure individualized learning. Throughout the day, campers move to different studios to explore new mediums and techniques as they create masterpieces based on the weekly theme. On Fridays we welcome a special guest to enhance our learning, then celebrate with friends and family at an Art Party and exhibition in the award-winning galleries.
CAMP STRUCTURESummer Art Camp for 4 year olds is offered in half days (9 - 11:45 am), for ages 5-12, in morning (9 - 11:45 am) or afternoon (12:45 - 3:30 pm) half days, or full days (9 am - 3:30 pm).

THE ART OF EXPLORING NATURE, MYTH & MAGICLong live the curious! From enchanted forests where hobbits and gnomes dwell, to sunken treasure deep under the sea, to the far reaches of space, this year’s theme opens the door to an amazing summer of discovery and art-making. Whether our inspiration is rooted in the natural or supernatural, we’ll uncover new facts about these worlds as we create and make new friends. Each week a new adventure awaits you.
Art Camp QuotesHear What People Are Saying About Our Camps!
The projects were unique and more than I expected from a summer camp. Some of the pieces are truly a piece of art that I am planning to save and display. My kids had a great time. They could not wait to go to the camp every day.
