Summer Art Experience

 

Summer Art Experience at the Armory Art Center is filled with fun and creativity. Our innovative weekly themes include drawing, painting, sculpture, jewelry, fashion, ceramics, and printmaking. Teens can discover the latest developments in 3-D printing technology with the Armory’s new 3D jewelry and ceramics printers. Most instructors have a master’s degree in art and/or education and all have had a background check. Our camp leaders are skilled in working with youth in the arts. We look forward to providing a safe and enriching environment for your child.

 

Activities include:

• A week filled with high-quality art education
• Immersion in various creative techniques for diverse interests and skill building
• Excursions to local venues
• Public art show receptions in June and August

Registering online, by phone, or walk-in is quick and easy.
