Summer Art Camp 2017

2017 | June 5– July 21

Now offering more camps than ever, for even more age groups!

Join us for a brand new Summer Art Camp in 2017! We have more camps than ever, for even more age groups! Our new age groups consist of 6-7, 8-10, 11-13 and 14-17. Teen Workshops and Portfolio course for Middle / High School have returned, and we’ve expanded most of our teen workshops to The Roberta M Golding Visual Art Center at the Bryan Glazer Family Jewish Community Center. We’ve also considered timing for drop-off and pick up, so you can have students at both locations. Every course is inspired by the current exhibits on view, the museum landscape, and art history. Each offers a variety of themes to engage students in creative fun!
