Art Camp Recap and What’s Ahead

We’ve had such a great time drawing, painting, and even sculpting while pondering bugs, space, and comics that it’s hard to believe AAC just completed its third week of art camps!

Here’s a sample of some of the fun we’ve had over the last few weeks:

There are even more camps coming – and next week, July 21st – 25th, we’re offering five camps for children between the ages of 4-14.

Fantasy Forests 

  • Monday – Friday from 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
  • Ages 4-6
  • We will use color and textures in fun ways to create our own imaginary worlds!

Five Adventures in Five Days

  • Monday – Friday from 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm
  • Ages 4-6
  • A new art theme will be explored every day as we experiment with 2D and 3D materials.

Drawing 101

  • Monday – Friday from 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
  • Ages 7-10

Finding Art in Nature

  • Monday – Friday from 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm
  • Ages 7-10

This is My City

As always, we’re excited for the next crop of campers and can’t wait to start learning and making more art!
