SUMMER ART CAMP!

Welcome to Summer Art Camp 2024 at CREATE!

Join us for amazing art adventures from June 10th through August 23th, 2024!

When school is out for the summer, art is in at CREATE! Each week of summer camp will bring new art adventures. Our experienced teaching artists inspire creativity by teaching various art-making techniques and by exploring artists’ styles to help our campers draw inspiration for their artwork. The week-long sessions allow for both multi-day and single-day projects, allowing our campers to work with various materials, including watercolor and tempera paints, clay, plaster, oil pastels, and more. At the end of the week, each child will go home with a portfolio filled with original artwork! Project types include pottery, sculpture, drawing, painting, cartooning, collage, mixed media, and more!

Ages 6-12.  Participants 13 years old can register as counselors-in-training (CITs). CITs participate fully in all art projects and activities but have the opportunity to assist our teaching artists.
