Summer ArtVentures

 

ArtVentures  |  Ages 5-7 & 8-11 (Children must have completed kindergarten) Our popular ArtVentures program for children blends fun with learning through a balance of structured projects, creative expression and play. We promote artistic exploration while developing technique and critical-thinking skills. Each theme is explored through a variety of mediums and imaginative projects. Students have three breaks during the day to explore our beautiful park, play on the connecting playground or participate in a game with their peers. Our weekly programs culminate in an art show designed to showcase and celebrate each child’s artistic accomplishments.

 

Classes meet from 9:00am-4:00pm with a one hour lunch break and two snack breaks. Early drop-off is available at 8:00am and late pick-up is available until 5:30pm.
