CourseGraphic We’re taking your favorite art camp and bringing it to your home! Online Art Camp is a half-day camp, where kids make 2 projects each day in a variety of art media, which may include painting, drawing, sculpture, and mixed-media. The materials fee covers a specially curated art supply kit custom designed for each week of camp, which will be available for curbside pickup at the Art Center the week prior to the camp. At the end of the camp, the kits are yours to keep for continued artmaking! Each camp culminates with a virtual art exhibition. This camp will be taught by the same talented teaching artists you know and love from the Art Center, who will be teaching remotely using Zoom. All you need to participate is a computer, tablet, or phone with internet access to Zoom. The week prior to camp, you will receive an email with the private Zoom link for the session.

Curbside pickup hours for this week's art kits are: Tues. 6/30 and Wed. 7/1 from 1-5pm; Thurs. 7/2 from 3-7pm; and Fri. 7/3 from 1-6pm. Due to the holiday, we will not have curbside pickup hours on the weekend of July 4 and 5. The last time to register for this camp is Friday 7/3 at 2pm. 

Art Around America (ages 8–9)
