Summer Art Camp 2017: Children and teens are in for a treat!

You are here:

Come to Summer Camp 2017 at the Studio School!
Programs for Children ages 5-12 and teens ages 13-16!

Your child will explore a theme each week through different media and creative practices, guided by our creative team of teaching artists. Our faculty are all practitioners and experts in the creative field and can lead your camper in creating original projects designed to be challenging and fun to make. Each camper will have the opportunity to create up to 10 projects each week, exploring and learning various techniques as they paint, draw, sculpt, and more! Every camper, tracked by age and experience, participates in projects based on the exploration of weekly themes. Kids make connections between disciplines while documenting their discoveries through personal art creation!

Each week is different. And each week-long session ends with your camper’s group putting together an art show in their homeroom studios for family and friends to see.
