Summer camps usually run in June, July and August.

How much do the camps cost?

Each camp varies.  All art supplies are included.

What payment methods can I use?

We accept cash and checks. Cash payments must be made in person at the studio.

What will my student do in Art Camp?

Each camp is different. We will offer clay AND draw&paint in each camp. Students will be able to choose their medium and subject. (We have clay, watercolors, oil pastels, tempera, acrylics, drawing pencils, colored pencils… and the list goes on!) Students will work on their own unique piece of art with professional instruction that is just right for their art level. Some students may complete one intricate clay piece or detailed painting, while another may choose to develop a cartoon strip. Yet another student may be interested in learning to draw the figure, while another student try their hand at painting a rendition of their favorite pet. The sky is the limit! We work with each student individually.

How many students are in a camp?

There are about 10 students in a class. Small classes ensure an intimate setting and  high quality instruction.

Can my son/daughter be in a camp with their brother/sister even though they are not in the same grade?

Yes. Summer camps are designed so students of all ages can be grouped together. Instructors tailor instruction to suit each student’s ability.

What supplies will my child need?

Supplies are included in most summer camps. Any additional supplies are listed with the camp descriptions and fee information.

What should my child wear?

Although we provide cotton smocks, we do suggest students dress in comfortable, casual play clothes.

Are your camps only for “talented students”?

Oh, no! EVERYONE can make great Art! We invite students of all ages to participate in our camps. We focus on self confidence and use positive reinforcement to ensure every student has a wonderful experience at Art Adventures.

If my child is gifted in art, will he/she be challenged in your camps?

Absolutely.  We work with many advanced students to sharpen their skills, teach upper level techniques and expand their creativity.

What if I need to cancel or transfer a summer registration?

Summer camps are non-refundable. However, if space is available, we will be happy to transfer a student to another camp that better suits your schedule. (A transfer fee may apply.) Please contact us with these requests via phone or email.

What if my child misses one day from a multi-day camp?

We will do our best to ensure your student has enough time to finish their Art project. Please contact us via email or phone to discuss the specifics of your situation.

What if a class is full? Is there a waiting list?

If you would like to be placed on a waiting list, you must do so by phone or email. Waiting lists are built on a first come basis.

Does the student need prior art experience to attend summer classes?

No. We teach all of our students one to one. The only requirement is to have fun!

Are students grouped by age/grade in the summer camps?

No. Because we teach one to one, we are able to place students of various ages in the same class. We try our best to keep similar ages together.

Are there any classes with a minimum age requirement?

Yes. We prefer students to be in currently kindergarten or older to participate in the summer camps.

Can I register for more than one camp?
