SUMMER ART CAMP FOR KIDS | Ages 7-12

Morning: 9:00 A.M. – 12:00 P.M.

Afternoon: 1:00 P.M. – 4:00 P.M.

Work side-by-side with a professional artist to create your own masterpiece. Kids make new friends and together explore both traditional and non-traditional forms of drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and more. This is a supportive and nurturing environment where kids receive individualized instruction in our small classes. Projects are both educational and fun; they lead you to discover your own creativity and individuality. Everyone can be an artist with the right encouragement and inspiration.

Halfway through class, students will eat their own snack and take a walk outside on the grounds. Sign your child up for a full day of camp and enjoy a free supervised lunch hour in between sessions. Each week is a new set of lessons, so depending on your schedule, feel free to enroll your child throughout the summer.

Weeks available: June 18, June 25, July 2 (No class July 4, $135), July 9, July 16, July 23, July 30, August 6, August 13, August 20
