St. Louis Artists' Guild Summer Camps

Spend the summer making art and having fun at the St. Louis Artists' Guild! Our classes focus on 2D media including drawing, painting, and printmaking, and our talented teaching artists work with each student based on their skill level. These camps are a great opportunity for students ages 6–18 who love to draw for fun or have a serious interest in improving their skills.

Budding Artist Camps for ages 6-9 emphasize taking it slow and having fun while putting effort into pieces they can be proud of. Each camp incorporates art gallery etiquette and interaction with current exhibitions. Each camp ends with a mini art show for families and guests to enjoy.
“Totally Buggin’”,  “Far Out”, “Wear It!”, and “Good Enough to Eat” have openings! 

Young Artist Camps for ages 10-13 give students the chance to take art classes that develop their abilities to draw and paint from life and their imaginations as they push themselves beyond what they knew they were capable of achieving.
“Printmaking for the Young Artist” and “Introduction to Portrait Drawing” have openings!

Teen Intensive camps for ages 14+ are perfect for high school students ready to take their artwork to the next level or strengthen their portfolio for college applications. Each camp is taught by experienced teaching artists who enjoy working with all types of students, from those just beginning their artistic journey to more experienced young artists who want to hone their skills.
“Portrait Painting in Oil” and “Printmaking for Teens” have openings!
