Summer Art Camps at AcA 2017

Summer Art Camps at AcA offer creative, challenging and fun hands-on experiences for children. We believe in an approach to teaching and learning that employs stimulating ideas like inquiry and self-expression. Our Teaching Artists bring an exceptional breadth and depth of experience as working artists and educators. They have extensive backgrounds working with children of all ages and learning levels. The camp staff work together to design innovative and challenging activities that provide campers the opportunity to express their creativity!
