Kids (ages 5–9)

Summer Art Camp is back at the Art Center in 2020 and it’s better than ever. We’ve cooked up all-new projects in the classic themes your kids love and we’re even adding new themes for our more adventurous artists. Each week, our talented teaching artists will help campers make both 2D- and 3D-projects that utilize a variety of art media, which may include painting, drawing, sculpture, mixed-media, and more. Art Camp for Kids is for ages 5–9, and campers will be divided into groups based on age. 

Animals & Wildlife Art >

July 6–10, 10 AM–3 PM

This week of camp is like taking a trip to the zoo, but way more creative! Explore the exciting world of animals and their amazing habitats. Kids will create projects such as koala bears in pastel, colorful elephant drawings, and clay fish sculptures.

Color Explosion >

July 13–17, 10 AM–3 PM

Explore color! This camp introduces kids to the fun pop-art movement and other ways in which bright and bold colors can be used in artwork. Kids will create projects that play with the use of colors, such as landscape paintings using basics of color theory and complementary color illustrations.

Mini Masters >
