Summer Arts 2014 - Children and Teens

June 23 – August 15, 2014: 8 week-long sessions offered for students entering Grades 1 through 12.


Think like an artist! In addition to learning about art practices and materials, each week we will explore new ways of seeing based on the elements of art and creative envisioning. Our instructors encourage awareness, observation, and the use of memory and imagination while improving skills. Creativity is fun!

New for 2014: Each week students will explore a different theme. For example, Draw, Paint, Sculpt (G 1-2) and Art Adventures (G 3-4) will seem like different classes each week, exploring and creating new ways of seeing line, color, space, place and more. Student art exhibition receptions every Friday, 11:45am–12pm and 3:15–3:30pm. (Session 2 celebration takes place on Thursday, July 3rd.) Come see what your artists have done!

Choose mornings, afternoons, or both. There are supervised lunches for students who are attending both morning and afternoon classes and extended day options in the mornings and afternoons. Grade refers to the student’s grade as of September 2014. See also the Student Info and the Discounts pages.
