Virtual Summer Art Camp Overview

Given the extraordinary circumstances of now, Harwood Art Center staff and teaching artists adapted to create 6 weeks of Virtual Summer Art Camp programming to engage children ages 6 – 14 in a range of visual and performing arts activities. We are making this modified distance program available to families for free, with a contribute what you can option.

Each week-long session will focus on a specific topic with lessons taught by our exceptional Summer Art Camp Teaching Artists. Children will engage daily in a variety of lessons and activities with a Teaching Artist, through a virtual platform that can be accessed on demand, at a time that is most convenient for campers. To support connection and community for our campers and artists, Tuesdays and Fridays of each session will include a dedicated Zoom meeting bringing together campers and the Teaching Artist. The links and any login or password information will become available through your account the first morning of each session.

Art Camp Activity Book

This year, in addition to offering our online Art Camp programming, we will also have an at-home activity book available for purchase. When you register for Art Camp, you’ll be given the option to add on an activity book. If you are unable to join us online, you are still welcome to purchase the activity book for campers to complete on their own.

More information coming soon.
