WHAT IS ART CAMP?
Art Camp is eight weeks of visual arts fun for young people, ages 6-12. Campers work in small, age appropriate groups and are led by artists who guide them in drawing, painting, printing, and other art techniques. Art Center prides itself on small class sizes and lesson plans that are unique and inspired by the artistic talents of our teaching staff.
Previous art experience or skills are not required, but campers should be enthusiastic and interested in art.
WHY ART CAMP?
Art Camp encourages your camper to:
• Explore his/her imagination
• Develop critical-thinking skills
• Learn new artistic skills, techniques, and media
• Study with some of South Florida’s best teaching artists
