Five-day summer camps will take place from July 12 to August 27.
This year, children ages 5-15 will be able to take part in Creativity Camps designed to present fun and challenging activities involving different art mediums, traditional instruction and play. Campers will be put into groups based on age.
Summer Clay Camps are intended for pre-teen artists ages 9-12, and will include curriculum involving teaching pottery skills and exploring design, sculpture and expression.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, camps will be limited to 10 people, including art center staff and camp volunteers, according to the art center’s camp website.
Creativity Camps and Clay Camps will cost $405 and $425 respectively, per camper per week.
