First Night Monterey - Celebrating 28 Years!

Summer Camp
REGISTRATION COMING SOON FOR 2021 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 seven one-week camps in June and July.
