Elements of Art Summer Camps

Elements of Art Summer Camps explore the elements of line, shape, form, space, color, and texture in art. Students get to create work in a variety of media while being inspired by the exhibitions on view. Camps are open to ages 5 through 12 and projects vary in complexity according to the student’s age.
