2021 In-Person Summer Art Camp for Kids (ages 5–9): Color Explosion (July 19–23, 10 AM–3 PM)

« back to classes page
Last summer, our wildly successful summer camp safely served more than 800 campers and had zero reported cases of COVID-19. This summer, we will build upon that experience to ensure a safe, creative, and most importantly, fun, in-person camp experience. We’re providing individual art supply bags and keeping class sizes small—which means greater social distancing and even more attention from teachers and counselors. Sessions will be held outdoors in tented studios. However, we are hoping for the best and the Art Center reserves the right to move camp indoors at our discretion. To make that transition as safe as possible, we’ve upgraded our HVAC system to include MERV-13 air filters and adjusted it to allow more fresh air to circulate. Additionally, every studio has an individual HEPA filter. Specific safety procedures will be finalized based on guidance at the time of camp and will be shared with caregivers in a welcome email before your session. No matter the conditions, we can guarantee that the socialization, creativity, and fun of in-person art camp will be a bright spot in your camper’s summer.

In-Person Summer Art Camp for Kids (ages 5–9)
Monday–Friday, 10 AM–3 PM
We are featuring all-new projects in our classic themes and are debuting new themes for more adventurous artists. Every week kids will work on both 2D- and 3D-projects in media like painting, drawing, sculpture, and mixed-media. Campers will be divided into limited-size groups based on age.

Color Explosion
July 19–23, 10 AM–3 PM
Explore color! This camp introduces kids to the bold pop-art movement and other ways in which vibrant colors can be used in artwork. Kids will create projects that play with colors, such as multi-colored kaleidoscope paintings and a mixed-media color-wheel collage.
