Our fun-themed ArtsQuest Summer Adventures Camps are designed to help young children ages 4-7, who are in the early stages of creative development, to explore musical and artistic foundations through games, activities and hands-on experiences.
“The ArtsQuest camps are the perfect opportunity for your child to be introduced to the wonderful world of music and art, as we sing, dance, draw, and play our way through a variety of themes, as well as learning about famous pieces of art and music,” said this year’s instructor Jimmy Stevens, a Master of Music candidate at George Mason University.
Each week will include music and movement activities, singing, art projects, and “instrument petting zoos” where children get real hands-on experience with the piano, drums/ percussion, band and orchestra instruments and more! Imaginative themes will set the tone for each week’s curriculum.

Outer Space Week: Let’s explore space through art and music! Come on a great adventure where we will see stars and planets, and listen to some of the best space music, such as Holst’s “The Planets”!
At the end of each week on Friday, parents/ family will be invited into the classroom for an interactive presentation from the students led by the instructor. With a new theme and new activities each week, children can come for one, two or all three weeks and enjoy unique experiences!
The program takes place at the Potomac Arts Academy Building, which is just off-campus from Mason and easy to get to. There is convenient, free parking right next to the building, too! After drop-off, parents can wait in the Academy office lobby or leave and come back at pick-up time. Want to get your kids excited about the arts? Then ArtsQuest is where to start!
