Summer Classes are Here: Choose Your Summer Getaway

Summer classes are already here…but don’t worry! Although the term has started, many classes don’t begin until after the July 4th holiday!There’s still time to make room for creativity this summer! How will you spend your summer….

Those are far from the only options, of course. With 128 classes and 50 workshops and 101 camps this summer, you and your little ones can get creative any way you choose!

For Little Artists

Art camp — for ages five and up — provides children a wonderful introduction to visual art. This summer, we’re offering 101 different camps over nine weeks!

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.

  • Art camps run from June 17 to August 12, Monday through Friday, and have a varied curriculum from week to week.
  • You can register for half-day camps, full-day camps, or full-day camps plus an extension.
  • This year you can also register for before-care for your children

Not sure where to start?

If you’re brand-new to art classes — or if you just need a refresher — we most often recommend Basic Drawing as a great first class…if you’re looking for a little inspiration, this article is helpful. If drawing not your speed, there are classes for beginners and those getting back into the swing of things in every medium, including ceramics, sculpture, fiber art, painting, photography, and printmaking.

No two artistic journeys are the same! That’s why you can always get in touch with us for advice on which class is right for you.

Still really stuck, take our Quiz: What art class should I take?
