Visual Arts in the A.M.

Campers will experiment with a wide range of materials and a variety of art-making techniques on individual and group projects of all sizes and shapes.  Topics will include painting, drawing, ceramics, printmaking, mosaics, collage, bookbinding, mask making, fabric dyeing, and more!

Performance Arts in the P.M.

We’ll explore theater games and spend time with improvisation, set design, creative writing, puppetry and grand-scale productions. Each camp session will end with a unique and original performance written, designed and performed by the campers. Parents won’t want to miss the show!

Special Topics in Art!

These one-week intensive studies in art are designed to develop skills and explore concepts in a specific medium or focus on a single theme. Back this summer, look for our Get inspired series, in which campers will deeply engage with an Art Center exhibition and create original artwork inspired by what they find! (10 & UP)

Camp topics include: Ceramics, Stop Motion Animation, Sketchbook Drawing, and more!
