Cool Creatures & Creations From Art Camp

It’s amazing how much creativity can be contained in one building. (OK, sometimes we go outside, too.)

About Art Camp

Summer Art Camp runs weekly through August 18, 2017 at The Art League’s Madison Annex in Old Town Alexandria. In our regular art camp, each day brings a new project that may include drawing, painting, printmaking, or sculpture. Our specialty camps, like Drawing Camp or Painting Camp, focus on immersion in one particular medium.
