SUMMER ART CAMP!
Welcome to Summer Art Camp 2023 at CREATE!
Join us for amazing art adventures from June 12th through August 25th, 2023!
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 a variety of art-making techniques, and by exploring the styles of artists to help our campers draw inspiration for their own artwork. The week-long sessions allow for both multi-day and single-day projects, giving our campers the opportunity to work with a variety of 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!
Summer art camp runs from June 12th through August 25th, 2023 in one-week sessions. Individual day registration is available for Session 1 (June 12-16) only.
Ages 6-12. 13 and 14-year-olds 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. CITs help with art project setup and cleanup, and lend a hand where needed. CITs are eligible to earn 3 hours per day towards SSL hours. If you have questions about becoming a counselor-in-training, please contact us at email@example.com.
Regular Camp Hours: 9:00 am to 3:00 pm

Camps are currently mask-optional. Participants must bring a non-perishable lunch, refillable water bottle, and a snack. All food must be completely NUT FREE. CREATE does not provide lunch or snacks.
Camp groups are generally divided by age. If you would like to request that your child is placed in a group with a specific friend or sibling, you must notify us at least one week in advance of the first day of the camp session. All requests must be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will attempt to accommodate requests, but group placement is not guaranteed. Please note that for requests involving campers of different ages, older campers will be placed with the younger group; younger campers will not be placed with the older group.
