We can't wait to welcome you to our expanded location in the Delmar Maker District, where we have updated, larger studio spaces to safely social distance and have fun learning a craft. Summer art camps provide young artists the outlet for exercising both critical and creative thinking through clay, fibers, metal, glass, and more. Our flexible camps fit into your busy summer schedule and are designed to engage youth in learning new and fun studio techniques by making amazing artworks.
