Summer Wonder Camp at the Studio School!

 The summer is all about fun!! Your child or teen will have the time of their life making art projects that are like none they've made or seen before! Each week our creative team of teaching artists guides campers in a new theme. Every week is different, so they can come back for new experiences throughout the summer! And each Friday your camper’s group puts together an art show in their homeroom studios for family and friends to see and enjoy.

 Our faculty members are all practitioners and experts in the creative field and will lead your camper in creating original projects designed to be challenging and fun to make. Each camper will have the opportunity to create about 10 projects each week, exploring and learning various techniques as they paint, draw, sculpt, and more!
