School’s out for summer, and kids and parents everywhere know what that means: time for Summer Art Camp at The Art League!
These popular weekly day camps, in subjects like cartooning, painting, and ceramics, begin next week and run through August 24. Camps are a great way to keep your kids happily — and creatively — busy this summer without spending too much: camps and teen courses range from $150 to $370.
Parents said children’s classes improved their confidence, giving them a way to express themselves and share their gifts. It’s not too late to register — may we suggest a week of claymation?

Here’s one students made in 2009, entitled “Bahama Frostbite” — a tale of a counterfeiting snowman and his criminal cat on vacation:
There are other specialty camps in drawing, cartooning, painting, photography, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, and fiber arts, as well as basic art camp, with a different project each day. We also offer a variety of classes for teens. There’s more info on Summer Art Camp here and brochures on the school page.
