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. Camp Art Academy balances technical instruction with freedom of self-expression. Students learn to embrace their curiosity and individuality as they develop essential artistic skills and techniques with lots of fun! In the morning, students practice drawing, painting, and printmaking, while in the afternoon, students explore sculpting, constructing, and installation art and explore influential artists.

In Summer 2023, students have discovered a mysterious time machine traveling them through time to explore exciting artist movements. From ancient art to the future, students will travel across the world and through time while creating portfolios of art.
