Summer Art Camp at the Art Center helps campers take advantage of the wellness benefits of art-making, including boosted self-confidence and improved social and emotional wellbeing, all while providing a fun and creative camp experience. Last summer, the Art Center safely welcomed more than 1,000 happy campers with zero reported cases of COVID-19. This summer, we will keep individual class sizes small for maximum instructor and counselor attention. Camps will be held indoors in our well-ventilated, sanitized, professional art studios. For caregiver convenience, a carline will be used for camper drop-off and pick-up, and based on parent feedback, we will be communicating via email about what happens during the camp day at the Art Center. Please note that safety is a priority, and specific protocols will be refined based on guidance closer to the start time of camp; these details will be shared with caregivers in a welcome email prior to your session.

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 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.
Comics, Cartoons & Characters
July 5–8, 10 AM–3 PM
In this 4-day week of camp, explore the world of cartoons, comics, and popular characters in everyone’s favorite camp! Create super fun art projects of familiar friends, like a mixed media Snoopy house and an illustration of BB-8, the robot from Star Wars
