Art Pro Camp (ages 12-17)

with Allyson Bode

June 10-14

Art Pro Camp combines lessons in drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture with exploration of current ASC exhibitions and summer camp themes.

Students will create 2D and 3D projects, and focus not only on artistic methods and working with different media, but also on the creative process itself by exploring mental health.

The camp will provide a nurturing environment where creativity becomes a conduit for addressing and understanding social and emotional issues.

This program will be a journey of artistic exploration, connection, and growth, where every brushstroke and creative endeavor becomes a pathway to self-discovery.

Parent or guardian must read, complete, and submit the summer camp manual by the first day of camp. Download here.

Scholarships are available! Complete the scholarship application here.

Support for this camp is provided by a Kenneth Reams Arts for Justice Grant.
