8 Years of Fun: Art Camp Time Machine!

Did you know that The Art League’s Art Camp is the region’s longest running summer youth visual arts program? We’ve been here for more than 30 years! While sadly we can’t find any photos from the ’80s (please let us know if you have any lying around), let’s take a look back at the last several years of burgeoning kid artists and eight years of fun at Art Camp!


Last year: 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!

Fun Fact: Ali Wunder (now The Art League’s Gallery Director) taught the lesson for these campers back in 2014 as the Camp Director!

Camp Registration is open..and there are tons of options for kids 5+! Sign up your little artist for a summer of exploration, creativity, fine art instruction, and a fridge full of your kid’s imaginative creations without the messy kitchen!
