Children of all ages love the chance to be creative, and our Summer Art Camps use arts as a catalyst to nurture creativity and enhance art skills in a non-competitive, safe, fun environment. No prior experience or talent needed. There is a lot of fun and learning with age-appropriate mentoring as your kids create in a real studio environment and have the opportunity to paint, draw and sculpt!
