Summer Programs

Summer is a time to discover the fundamentals of art! All youth programming emphasizes the fundamental elements and essential vocabulary of art, encouraging students to explore and communicate as they create. Students gain skills in various media – including paint, clay, wire, fiber, and so much more – taught and guided by our professional art educators.

Summer camp registration opens mid-January each year, so you can get an early start to making your summer plans. Camps run from June to early August each summer.

Important Information:

Supervised Care is a paid service that we provide for children that will be on-site prior to, in-between or after camps are in session. We offer three different supervised care sessions:

  • Morning Session, before camps 8 – 9 AM
  • Mid-day Session, in-between camps 12 – 1 PM (Please note: lunch is not provided. Please send a lunch with your child.)
  • Afternoon Session, after camps 4 – 5 PM

Each session costs $30 per 5-day camp; $60 for 2 sessions; $90 for 3 sessions. If your child is enrolled in both morning and afternoon camps, you must purchase and enroll them in the Mid-day Supervised Care session.

Supervised Care is not available to Summer Teen Studio participants. ASLD is an open campus for teens (ages 14-17) participating in Summer Teen Studio programming.

There will be a daily camp schedule in the front lobby with all the room assignments. Parents must initial the enrollment sheet in the studio when dropping children off. Please make sure you drop your child off on time as children arriving late disrupt the class. Please do not drop off your child earlier than 10 minutes to start time of camp. Early drop-offs or late pick-ups are subject to a supervised care fine of $20 per occurrence.

  1. Pick-Up from Camps/Supervised Care: After camp has ended for the day, parents or supervised care providers will pick up all children from the studio. Parents picking up their children from either the studio or from supervised care need to check-out their child by initialing the enrollment sheet. Late pick-ups are subject to a supervised care fine of $20 per occurrence.

Scholarships are awarded to families who demonstrate an interest in the arts, dedication to learning, and financial need. Youth scholarship funds are reviewed on a first-come, first-serve basis, with awards ranging from partial to full registration fees based on income and availability of funds for youths 6-17 years of age.
