Registration is now open!

We are thrilled to announce a brand-new summer camp program for 2020!

Our unique camps emphasize creative expression, artistic experimentation, and active learning through art workshops designed to challenge and inspire. In collaboration with SECCA, Winston-Salem-based artists and art instructors have designed hands-on experiences that will introduce campers to the world of contemporary art.

Learn more about our exciting new camps below!

Mindfulness & Creative Expression

This camp will offer a safe space for campers to develop their creative voice in a judgment-free, non-competitive environment.
