Youth Art Summer Camp

Art Camp (Grades 1 –5) #4

Children's Faculty / Studios 2 - 7
July 26 - July 30
9 am - 4 pm / 1 weeks
$270 / Members: $250

This Art Camp schedule is designed for a full day’s experience. Each session is one week, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a supervised one-hour lunch period. Art camps are a great way to help creative children express themselves. Each week the art campers start off with a clay project then explore 3-D and 2-D media with our teaching artists. Please be sure to enroll your child in the grade level he or she will be entering in the fall. As we go into our 60th year of art camp, the Kirk Newman Art School is implementing some more procedures. As an institution we are diligently staying informed on all the updated COVID information. We are taking precautions to keep not only our campers safe but also our faculty. As a preventive measure we have greatly reduced the number of campers per camp session. The limited number of campers and only all day camps will reduce the number of people entering the building each day. This year our camp forms with emergency contacts will be emailed to all camp families. These forms must be filled out and returned via email before the first day of camp. We hope to see your campers this year and we can't wait for summer art camps to begin.
