Elementary Art Camps

The Center will offer fun elementary art camps featuring small class sizes that enable social distancing.  We will mask up, and each child will have their own supplies.  Please send a snack and a water bottle from home!  Weather permitting, some classes may be held under a tent canopy outside!

Class size will be limited to 10 - register early to reserve your spot!  Please note some camps are in the morning, some in the afternoon!
