Summer Camp 2017

Summer Camp kIdsAges 6-12

At Artworks Summer Camp, students explore a variety of art mediums through a series of week-long sessions. Campers develop their creativity and self-confidence while having a blast. Artworks Summer Camp has a small student teacher ratio, placing students in small classes organized by age; this ensures optimal attention and support for each camper. All staff are skilled and fully trained in childhood education and/or fine arts.

Artworks offers two locations, Mclean, VA and Bethesda, MD. Both locations offer full day camp from 9am to 3pm, with after care available until 5:30pm. Before care, starting at 8am, and daily lunch options are only available at the Bethesda studio.

Students are separated by age to ensure appropriate activities and maximum encouragement. Projects change every week, so students doing multiple weeks do not repeat the same project twice. Each day students get to try a different art medium; some examples include clay, watercolors, acrylic painting, pastels, and many, many more.

Artworks Teen program is an intensive week-long program that gives the student a glimpse of what it is like to be a working artist. Upon arrival each Monday, campers will learn hand-building techniques with clay, followed up with a course on oil painting, and finally watercolor. Artworks takes a maximum of 12 teen students each week, this small groups allows the instructors to focus on individual instruction, getting the most out of each camper. All art supplies are included. Students typically complete two oil paintings, a watercolor, and one ceramics piece. This course is a great way to begin the process of building portfolio, or to add to an existing one.

Cost: $355/Week  ($335 for early registration)
