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.

As in-person camps will be taking place, we have arranged the following art kit curbside pickup times to avoid camp drop-off and pick-up car lines. The art kit curbside pickup times for this week of camp are: Tues. 8/4 from 4-6pm; Wed. 8/5 & Thurs. 8/6 from 12-2pm and 4-9pm; Fri. 8/7 from 12-2pm and 4-6pm; Sat. 8/8 & Sun. 8/9 from 10am-4pm. The last time to enroll in this camp is Sunday, 8/9 at 12pm. 

Comics, Cartoons & Characters (ages 8-9)
August 10-14, 1–4:30 PM
Explore the world of cartoons, comics, and popular characters in this popular week of camp! Create fun art projects like a mixed-media superhero and a clay sculpture of Nemo or Dory. In addition to the art supplies in this week’s supply kit, you will need to have the following: computer, tablet, or phone with access to internet and Zoom: something to cover your work surface (newspaper, plastic tablecloth, etc.), 1 pair of scissors, and 1 small container for paint water (such as a single serving yogurt cup).
