During the five-day Basic Art Camp, children explore a new medium or begin a new project each day, dabbling in drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture. The syllabus is different each week the camp is offered. We also offer a variety of media-specific camps — click here to browse by subject.

Participants have the option of creating a full-day session, either by enrolling in all-day basic camp, or by combining a half-day of basic camp and a media specialization camp. The schedule of classes allows parents to choose from several concentrations in visual art, designed around the child’s age group and interests.
