Cool Creatures & Creations From Art Camp

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.
