When school is out for the summer, art is in at CREATE!
Each week of summer camp will bring new art adventures. Our experienced teaching artists inspire creativity by teaching a variety of art-making techniques, and by exploring the styles of artists to help our campers draw inspiration for their own artwork.
Summer Camp 2020 runs from June 8 though August 28, 2020 in one-week sessions. Individual day registration is available for Session 1 (June 8-12, 2020) only.
