Camp Art Academy


Your kid's creativity is very important to us! That's why, in addition to virtual classes, we're again announcing In-person Camp Art Academy! Art is more exciting when you color outside the lines. Give your kids an outside-the-box arts experience that will help them sow the seeds of creativity and grow their futures! At Camp Art Academy, children receive an award-winning arts education while exploring their creativity and making new friends within a diverse and inclusive community. Focused on balancing technical instruction with freedom of self-expression, kids learn to embrace their curiosity and individuality as they develop essential artistic skills and techniques with lots of fun!



In-person camp provides all the favorite activities it's known for and Virtual Camp Art Academy will provide 24/7 access to classroom curriculum, recorded live videos with teachers that you can view on your own time. Logging into online class from home is easy and connects campers and their guardians with access to 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.

Adults are encouraged to go to virtual camp with their kids! 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.

“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.”
