Summer Art Camp: A Summer of Color!

June 17 – August 23, 2024

Ages 5-9, Pre-Teens, and Teens are invited to celebrate the summer with splashes of color!

Explore your creativity as you learn your own unique way to color the world. Campers registered for multiple weeks can expect a variety of different lessons, and our experienced teaching artists bring their own flair to the classroom. Class sizes are small, and safety is our first priority.

Palette Pals (5-9 yrs) can register for either a full-day or half-day session (morning or afternoon). Pre-teens (10-12 yrs) and teens (13-16 yrs) can pair morning and afternoon camps for a full-day experience, or choose a half-day camp (morning or afternoon). All campers must bring a snack, full-day campers must also bring a lunch. Students spend most of the day in our studios with breaks outside if weather permits.

We end each Friday with an Art Party from 3:00 – 3:30 pm to celebrate your camper’s creative accomplishments. Join us this summer to make some colorful, new memories.
