Young Artist Camp

Young artist camp is a workshop for students ages 8-12. Each session provides our growing artists unique opportunities to explore the current exhibitions and try new techniques, or experiment with traditional and new materials. Since our older kids can handle more challenging concepts, sometimes our projects will continue over more than one session. The instructor is an experienced art educator who builds a curriculum of exciting projects that will help our students grow and develop their skills.
