Art Camp: Around the World (4-9 years)

Register

The world we live in is filled with unique countries with their own cultures, folklore and crafts. During ArtsQuest’s Summer Art Camps at the Banana Factory Arts Center, your child will discover the most creative aspects of ancient and modern cultures. In a full-day session, young artists rotate through four course offerings in 2- and 3-dimensional art. From drawing cityscapes and making wearable artwork to creating musical instruments, students will learn about the world through many artistic mediums. Projects are designed to promote creativity, teamwork and confidence. Young artists will be grouped by age to explore mixed media, drawing, painting, fiber arts, printmaking, sculpture, metalwork, jewelry and more inspired by the week’s theme.* At the end of each week, students will demonstrate and showcase their work to parents and visitors at the Summer Art Party!
