Summer Arts Camp 2020

June 8 – August 14, 2020

Bring out the artist and performer in your child with visual arts, performing arts, music and interdisciplinary programs at the Art and Culture Center’s Summer Arts Camp. Each session allows students the chance to build and hone skills which they then get to showcase in final exhibitions and performances.

The Center’s arts education programs for youth inspire the creativity in children; strengthen the family bond; and grow awareness of the arts as an essential resource in a child’s social development and academic success. Research shows that children who participate regularly in the arts improve their attention span, learn more quickly, and develop higher level critical thinking skills. They also have fun.
