Held in the Creston Arts Center in June, this program is the perfect way to keep your child exploring their creativity during the summer. Classes start with kindergarten to fifth-grade students in the morning and sixth to eighth-grade students in the afternoon. High school students are invited to volunteer to develop and hone their leadership skills. 

Art Camp is a place where we celebrate diversity and inclusion among our students, assistants, and instructors. All are welcome and encouraged to express themselves and their culture through art. At Art Camp, students explore a variety of projects incorporating several different media and art forms. Many of these activities focus on using found and repurposed objects. Send your kids to camp and see what they can create!
