Art and Photography Summer Camps & Programs

 


Registration is open and we are planning on running all programs at this point.
In the event of program cancellation due to COVID-19, a full refund will be issued.


 

Explore the many facets of visual art and photography through traditional techniques as well as digital technology.  These enriching and inclusive weekly summer camps and programs are presented in collaboration with George Mason University’s School of Art. Your kids and teens ages 6 – 18 will have the opportunity to learn from University professors, professional teaching artists and Master’s degree candidates in the same classroom spaces where the college students learn and create their art!  These programs will focus on both artistry and skill building with other like-minded young artists.

 

Proudly named “Best Summer Camps 2020” in Northern Virginia Magazine’s Best for Families Reader Poll!
