The Academy of the Arts will offer three art camps this summer, (June 14-18 or July 19-23) for students who have completed first through fifth grade and another (June 21-25) for middle school students who have finished grades six through eighth.
Summer Art Camp is one week full of inspiration and creative expressions lead by our experienced art instructors. Students make meaningful art while they make new friends and have lots of fun.
All of our Art Camps for 2021 are full and have waiting lists. Please check back with us for our Fall 2021 classes. These should be posted by early July.
