Summer Art Camps for kids ages 6+ take artist campers on a week-long journey into the wonderment of art play with a purpose. What does a student take away from this week of making art? They capture and hold feelings of success through exploring new concepts using a variety of professional art materials. Innovative problem solving absolutely happens here.

Our teachers guide students through carefully designed explorations of the fundamentals of art making, encouraging them to hold their innate creativity in confidence as they grow. A child’s investigations into this wide variety of media develop creative, outside-the-box problem-solving skills and nurture imagination in an inspirational, supportive atmosphere that addresses the individual needs of every student. In most kid art businesses, students copy samples only to get cookie-cutter results. Never at Studio Arts! Kids will come home with several original pieces of art each week.

Special Notes:

– If your young artist wants to stay all day, take advantage of the supervised lunch hour between camps ($35 for the week/per child). You bring the lunch and we provide the supervision.

– Please provide a small, non-refrigerated snack and drink daily. We provide filtered tap water. Making art makes kids hungry. No peanuts, please.

Wheel & Hand-build Camp: Water

The camp is fantastic for kids for so many reasons. Developmentally, working in clay assists hand-eye coordination. Give a kid a lump of clay and their brain slows down to allow inspiration to flourish. Our projects, a mix of instruction on the potter’s wheel and hand building, are designed with fun and learning in mind. Water offers different projects from Air. If you are unable to take work home on the last day of camp, please check the designated box in the clay garden for up to one week after camp.


Wheel and Hand-build Camp: Air

The camp is fantastic for kids for so many reasons. Developmentally, working in clay assists hand-eye coordination. Give a kid a lump of clay and their brain synchs up to allow inspiration to flourish. Our projects, a mix of instruction on the potter’s wheel and hand building, are designed with fun and learning in mind. Air offers different projects from Water. If you are unable to take work home on the last day of camp, please check the designated box in the clay garden for up to one week after camp.


Draw/Paint: Elements

Nuts and bolts of design bound together with Earth, Air, Fire, Water as inspirational subjects. We are so excited by this new camp we have decided to offer it almost every week! Be sure and try it– we designed it to be instructional and a camp all kids will adore. It’s like The Art Class but in a camp – full of experimentation and FUN.


Draw/Paint: Reality

Is your child always drawn to picking up a pencil? Hey! Don’t let them brush off their painting skills. Campers will draw from still life (but really COOL still life), costumed models and often a special animal guest while learning important stuff like proportion, perspective, composition and hatching/cross hatching to achieve value. Campers will have fun and gain skills quickly through our well-proven methods. New projects each year.


Draw/Paint: Fantasy

Why do we return again and again to this camp? Because it’s magic. Our famous Fairy/Mermaid and Dragon/Owl camps all rolled up in one fabulous experience. Create amazing worlds through drawing and painting and a little bit of sculpture that favorite fantasy friends will feel right at home in. This camp really works out the imagination muscles. New projects each year.


Spirit Animal Camp

Learn what symbols and superpowers are attributed to favorite animals! Our multi-media projects encourage campers to investigate in depth the animals that are important to them, be they four-legged or winged, horse or hedgehog. Each of us has our own special spirit animal. Delve deep to discover the messages each spirit animal possesses.
