Our summer camp is a lively and creative place for young artists to spend their summer. They have the opportunity to build their portfolio of artwork with many quality pieces. Their lessons range from drawing and painting, to sculpture and printmaking, to more digital platforms like photography. Campers work independently on some projects and then collaboratively on others. They will learn from highly experienced artists, all of which have had teaching backgrounds or other experience with children. At the end of the camp session, the campers' artwork will be displayed in a summer art show where awards will be distributed for our most impressive work.

We believe that kids need structure to successfully participate in a program like ours. Because of this, we like to follow the same routine each day so that the campers can learn their daily activities. A typical day begins with distribution of breakfast from 8:30 to 9:00 am. After breakfast, campers participate in setting up their work spaces and preparing for class. The morning classes will be from 9:00 am to 11:30 am. Lunch will then be distributed at 12:00 pm, and the campers have a short lunch break where they have a chance to socialize or play on the playground. The campers will attend their second class from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm. Then the entire camp assists in clean up as the parents pick up their children.
