For Children & Families


Our Teaching Philosophy

Our children’s programming is centered around getting kids excited about creating and all of the possibilities that it can bring to life. If you can tap into a child’s passion and provide them the support and supplies they need, they’ll often surprise themselves with what they can accomplish! It’s all about having the freedom to explore and discover. Children find new ways of expressing themselves through projects that reveal and develop talents, building healthy self-regard and confidence, as well as developing creative thinking skills.

All About Creative Camps!

Camps at the Art Center are focused on fun, and all the different ways an artist can express themselves. We spend our time making art projects in a variety of media, practicing drama, story telling, dancing, playing organized games, as well as having free imaginative play time. If weather permits, we go to a local park after lunch. We’re flexible too! You can register your child for a week of creativity or just select the days you need. Our camps are for ages 5-11. The dynamic of the mixed age group creates a little community in which some kids become leaders, helpers, assistant teachers, and care givers. It’s pretty neat to see. After signing up on Eventbrite (camp names below are links to Eventbrite), please fill out the online registration form at to provide us with important allergy and emergency information for your child.

What to pack:
Snowpants, hat, & gloves for winter camps, other weather appropriate clothes for spring and summer camps, as well as sunscreen and/or sun hats for our trips to the park. Please pack lunch and a large water bottle or other drink.
