Virtual Camp Art Academy

Your kid's creativity is very important to us! That's why we're announcing Virtual Camp Art Academy, an online summer art camp for ages 5-12. Logging into class from home is easy and connects campers and their guardians with access to an award-winning arts education and a platform to meet fellow young artists and their families. Experimental, creative, and expressive art projects are updated daily in our online classrooms by our teachers and counselors. We made sure the assignments don't require hard to find materials and are home-studio approved. Campers will explore unconventional art materials and discover new methods to express their creativity and develop their ideas. Educational benchmarks are intertwined in our camp themes and include art history, self-expression, artistic techniques, and skill development.

Adults are encouraged to go to camp with their kids this summer! You can meet with our teachers daily during a live-stream class session, share your Camper's art on our classroom's virtual fridge, and gain access to creative and educational resources for creative teaching at home. Popular Camp Art Academy traditions will be digitized such as our end-of-the-week gallery shows, visiting artists, and field trips to art museums and galleries. Adding extra events and children activities to our curriculum this summer will keep Campers engaged, educated, and entertained daily. They'll have the opportunity to participate in story-time from authors, song and dance sessions with performance artists, and digital art parties. All while exploring their creativity, learning new artistic methods, building their visions, and meeting new friends during an experimental summer camp experience.

Voted "Best of the City 2012" for Best Art Camp for Kids:

“After the first week she knew where she wanted to be. I canceled camp somewhere else for her to come to art camp more. Who knew she would enjoy it this much?”

- Charolette’s Mom (child, age 6)

“I was impressed at each weekly exhibit. His skill development really improved over just a summer.”

- Ryan’s Dad (child, age 12)

I was struck by how much the staff cared about the uniqueness of each of my children.  The assistant in her classroom really helped Loretta to see the beauty of the artist inside of her.”
