Summer Art Camps 2017
Art Detectives: Discovering Art One Clue at a Time
Registration for Summer Art Camps will open April 1, 2017. Visit the Summer Camp page under education for more information.
4-6 year-old campers: Geared specifically to 4-6 year olds who are not attending first grade in the fall, the art projects in our Junior Camps expose campers to a variety of artistic styles, artists, and mediums. Each week campers discover new artistic “clues” based on the letters of the alphabet, so no two weeks are the same!
Rising 1st-4th graders: Each week 1st-4th graders will decipher the mysteries of art and explore their creativity through drawing, painting, paper mache, pottery, and more. Campers will explore the art of famous artists, far-away places, and try their hands at new techniques as they follow their weekly “clues” from the alphabet. Full or half-day programs are available, with different programs offered in the mornings and afternoons.
Campers in Grades 5 and Up: Each week campers in grades 5 and up can hone their skills in a particular medium. Campers can register for full or half-days, with different classes offered each morning and afternoon.
