Geared for children ages K5-12 (and up to 14 years of age for our Camp Comic Con session), our popular summer art camp sessions are offered from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. throughout the summer. Pre-care and after-care are also available for each session. Campers are instructed in a variety of visual and performing arts activities such as drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, pantomime, improvisation and musical theater. On the final day of each camp, an exhibition of the work produced and a public performance is held for families and friends.
