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.

Art Journaling and Fiber Arts
(4 days) 
July 5–8, 10 AM–3 PM

Art Journaling: Art journaling is a wonderful habit for everyone, not just artists! Keeping a journal that contains one’s inspirations, frustrations, dreams, and fears is a way to creatively process everyday life. Tweens will make their own journal with simple bookbinding techniques and will fill its pages both inside and outside of camp. We’ll also encourage tweens to share their journaling journey during camp.

Fiber Arts: Explore the wonderful world of fiber arts through color, texture, and pattern! Tweens will learn the basics of how to warp and weave on a loom to create different textiles that are functional or purely decorative. Campers will be creating several skill-building projects during this exciting week of camp. Set up the loom and let the creativity unfold!
