Summer Camp 2021_generic

ArtsQuest’s Summer Arts Camp at the Banana Factory Arts Center is a socially-distanced, low-capacity summer camp with options for children ages 4-9. In 2021, your child will explore different themes, movements, and connections within art history while learning new artistic processes. Choose from a full-day or half-day session. In a full day session, young artists rotate through four different courses in 2D and 3D artwork, taught by our talented teaching artists and staff. Projects are designed to promote creativity, teamwork and confidence, and young artists will be grouped by age to explore mixed media, drawing, painting, fiber arts, printmaking, sculpture, and more inspired by the week’s theme*. At the end of each week, students will demonstrate and showcase their work to family and friends at the Summer Art Party! Financial aid is available for those who qualify.

Plus, don't forget to check out our current classes for pre-teen and teen offerings.
