SUMMER ART CAMPS
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 Tweens (ages 10–12)
Monday–Friday, 10 AM–3 PM
This offering is for young artists ready to graduate to the next level of art camp, where they will explore art media and techniques in greater depth during two daily studio sessions. Our talented teaching artists will guide tweens in developing their own personal style while they learn and refine their art skills.
Assemblage and Essential Drawing & Painting Techniques
August 15–19, 10 AM–3 PM
Tweens will transform everyday items into expressive, personal sculptures! Imagine all the artistic possibilities in combining materials such as paper, plastic, clay, and wire with found objects. Through demonstrations and hands-on practice, tweens will learn various techniques to manipulate the materials and create one-of-a-kind sculptures.
Essential Drawing & Painting Techniques:
This camp is perfect for the tween looking to develop the foundational skills of drawing and painting. Tweens will use their observational skills and gain familiarity with diverse media (such as graphite, charcoal, and acrylics) through drawing exercises that may include gesture drawings, blind contours, and contour drawings. Linear perspective, color theory, and building form with light and shadow will also be covered as tweens render their artistic creations.
