Creative Workshop Art Day Camp for ages 6-8 | Kids Out and About Rochester

Creative Workshop Art Day Camp for ages 6-8

A fun, high-quality art education program for children 6–8. At Art Day Camp, kids can get messy, be challenged and be creative.

Summer 2019!

Let's explore the world in a fun, historically accurate way by looking at amazing artwork from across the globe, then creating our own unique artworks.

Art Day Camp provides kids with the teachers, materials, time and the inspiration they need to create artwork they are proud to show. And with six hours of instruction per day, a fully-stocked supply closet and the resources of an outstanding art museum, the artwork tends to be impressive.
