Community Education - Camp Art Academy


Your kid’s creativity is especially important to us! 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.

Camp Art Academy

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 in a fun environment.

This year at Camp Art Academy we will be taking a trip around the world! Explore different continents by creating your own artwork inspired by cultures, art, food, and more. Kids ages 5-12 will enjoy immersing themselves in the rich cultures from around the globe to create unique artworks, all the while learning about popular artists and global art movements throughout history.
