Kinds of visual arts camps

Visual or fine arts camps are offered in the summer and winter, during winter and March break, and on PA days. Some of these camps offer a wide variety of arts activities. Others specialize in one specific art. And others offer the fine arts, along with other activities, such as sports or educational pursuits.

Some programs offered by art camps include the following:

Benefits of visual arts camps

A visual or fine arts camp can be a nice option for your artsy child. Your child will receive instruction from someone trained (and likely working) in the visual arts. Depending on the length and type of program, they’ll also learn and develop one or more refined artistic skills, such as drawing, painting, or photography. Most importantly, they’ll be able to pursue their passions, stir their creative juices, and have great fun.

Some other ways your child might benefit from a fine arts class include the following:

  • Improved fine-motor skills
  • Learning basic and advanced artistic techniques
  • Learning about the history of art
  • Collaboration with other kids
  • Improved confidence
  • Improved concentration
