2024 Visual Art Summer Camps

By Editorial Team on February 16, 2024

For tweens and teens who are passionate about the arts, VisArts’ award-winning summer intensives in ceramics (handbuilding and wheel), painting + drawing, printmaking, and textiles) provide the opportunity to hone their skills in rigorous courses taught by VisArts’ faculty. In our immersive program, students find their unique style, develop their practice, and build an extensive portfolio while exploring their chosen medium.  More information at https://www.visartscenter.org/intensives-tween-teen/
