Modeled after Atlantic Center’s world-renowned artists-in-residence program, each one-week session features three classes that give kids an opportunity to explore ideas of art and culture through hands-on experiences with a variety of art forms, including paper maché, painting, photography, tai chi, drumming, dance, and more. Atlantic Center for the Arts’ Summer Art Camp is held at ACA’s Community Arts Center in our Yurick Studios. The final session will take place at ACA’s main campus, in the beautiful Leeper Studios. Each session features different art instructors and participants will meet new friends and take home artwork every week. There is downtime for snacks, stretching, games and lunch.
