SUMMER ART CAMPRegister Now
Calling All Time Travelers, Archaeologists and Dreamers: Fire up your imagination, call on your creativity, and join us for an artistic journey through space and time this summer! Get Ready To Be Transported: From the ancient to the new, we’re exploring and celebrating art movements that have shaped human history. From the art of the Navajo to Picasso we’re exploring times and artists that inspire and challenge us. Young artists will discover a variety of age-appropriate materials, techniques, and concepts through imaginative projects inspired by the weekly theme and designed to tap into each child’s innate creativity. With professional artists, in professional studios, campers explore drawing, painting, ceramics, jewelry and metals, printmaking and digital media, while cultivating critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Each Friday, we celebrate our journey during an Art Party in our galleries where friends and family are part of the fun. What do you call an expedition through so many art movements in just 11 weeks in the company of new friends and talented teaching artists? Call it the best summer ever!
