Teen Summer Camp

Each week gives middle and high school students an in-depth studio experience. Designed to empower teen artists by engaging their creativity and enhancing their skills, students are introduced to two forms of artistic expression each week in the fields of drawing, painting, ceramics, photography, fiber, and sculpture. Small class sizes, grouped by age and experience, enable our instructors to take a deep dive with the students so that they can build technique and grow their individual style. These camps are for children entering grades 6-12 and will be divided into two groups: young teens and older teens.
