Registration Open For Monterey Summer Art Camps!

Children of all ages love the chance to be creative, and First Night Monterey's Art Day Camps use arts as a catalyst to nurture creativity and enhance 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 children create in a real studio environment and have the opportunity to paint, draw and make with a variety of materials. Each Friday features a gallery exhibit of their work completed during the camp week. We will have six weeks of camps in June and July; sessions are filling up fast! Sign up NOW to get your preferred schedule!
