Summer Art Camps Registration Underway at The Center for Contemporary Art 


Registration is underway for Summer Art Camps at The Center for Contemporary Art. Ten weekly in person Summer Art Camps, from June 20 – August 26, are offered for children ages 5-15. The Center’s Summer Art Camps are designed to stimulate creative expression through projects and fun activities that change each week. All sessions are led by professional and creative teaching artists. Small classes, social distancing, daily sanitizing and other protocols are in place and enforced to keep your child safe


Parents love The Center’s art camps because their children develop important artistic techniques and learn about the principles of visual art, historical periods, and well-known artists. Comments from parents of past campers include: “My daughter looked forward to going every morning and came home so happy.” “Beautiful projects! We cannot believe how much was completed in just the one week, and the level of creativity the camp teachers inspired in our kids!”


Each week children ages 5-8 and 9-11 will spend the morning exploring drawing, painting, collage and other mixed media projects, and pottery in the ceramics studio. In the afternoon, campers ages 9-11 will explore a wide range of subjects in depth such as drawing, painting, pottery, upcycled art, cartooning, manga/anime and more.


Teens ages 12-15 may choose to spend their mornings or afternoons in an intensive art camp studying a single subject.


Select camps for ages 9-11 and ages 12-15 will be offered in a hybrid format, allowing out-of-state campers to participate online via Zoom.


The Center will also offer camps for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other special needs on Saturdays from June 25-July 30. These camps are generously funded by a grant from Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
