Art Camp 2023 (Register Now – Choose July 17–21 or July 24–28)

Mon July 17 – Fri July 28


Del Ray Artisans invites young campers ages 8-12 years old for “Kids Just Wanna Have Fun” Summer Art Camp to spend a week creating art with professional local artist instruction. Students will have an immersive creative journey: painting, sculpting, journaling and other artful planned activities. During nice weather, kids will even have outdoors time to get fresh air, unwind, and replenish their creative energy. All artist supplies are provided. There will be an online photo album highlighting the two weeks of art camp available later in August for parents, friends and the community to enjoy.

Choose Week One (July 17–21) or Week Two (July 24–28).

Camp runs Monday through Friday from 9am-4pm.

For Ages: 8-12 (class size limited to 12 children per week)

Cost: $350 per child

Scholarship support is available; contact [email protected] for an application.
