Learn new drawing skills while working from photographs, Michener exhibitions, still life objects, observation, and imagination. Explore both wet and dry media while creating a series of original black and white and color works of art using pen and ink, chalk pastels, oil pastels, pencils, and charcoal.

Students provide their own peanut free lunch for full day and snacks for half-day programs. Families and friends are welcome to come 15 minutes before the end of camp on Friday to enjoy an exhibition of student work in the Education Gallery and classrooms.

Need a full day program? Students may combine the morning Drawing and Painting Fun! camp with the afternoon Pop Art or, for six-year-olds, the Sensational Sixes camp, and Lunch Option 1.

Individualized attention, inspired and supportive instruction, small classes, meaningful gallery tours, and award-winning teachers are hallmarks of our exceptional arts programs. Through exposure to a variety of art forms and materials, all courses encourage the development of new skills and build confidence in creative expression. In addition, our summer camps provide opportunities for lively social interaction and outdoor activities. Student work is exhibited in the Education Gallery throughout the summer.
