2018 Art Camp by the Numbers

Summer (camp) days are drifting away….

The colored pencils have all been zipped away, the clay dust carefully cleaned off the counters, and the paint scrubbed off the paintbrushes. It’s the final week of Art Camp, and after a fun and creative summer, our campers are making their way out of the halls of our Madison Annex and back to school.

Paint your own portrait!

Art Camp by the numbers

This summer, campers ages 5-17 worked on a variety of projects from handmade earrings, to cartoon strips, to abstract compositions. Over 1,000 campers joined our 30+ camps for over 40 days of creative fun this summer. Our 25 instructors and 10 interns kept the creativity flowing over all nine weeks of Art Camp fun! If you’re wondering what nine weeks of Art Camp looked like… you’re in luck!

How many colored pencils, crayons, paints, and beads can you count? Here’s just a sampling of what our campers created this summer:
