Kids Art Camps

Building Imagination, Creativity, Confidence and Self-Expression though ART!

At the kid's art camps students are immersed in different projects where they develop skills in various techniques such as drawing, painting, sculpting, and design, and apply them to create original works of art.

Kid's art classes are available during the summer months, school breaks, and on specified days throughout the year. In the art camps, students are challenged with both short-term and long-term projects they can take home at the end of the week.

An example of a long term project may be a painting that requires several steps, or product design that is taken from start to finish. Examples of shorter-term projects may be watercolor painting, drawing, or mixed-media works that might be completed within a day. See below for a list of past camps.
