Summer Camps

Join us for a summer of learning, exploration, and artistic growth!

We offer a full day of courses, five days a week, for children ages 5 - 15. There are four 2-week Summer Camp sessions from June 11 -  August 3. Each session includes a morning (9:00am - 12:00pm) and/or afternoon course (1:15 - 4:15pm) in the 5-8, 9-12, and 13-15 year-old age groups. For students who take both morning and afternoon courses there is a $50 fee for supervision during the lunch break from 12:00 - 1:15pm (meals not included in fee). You will receive a separate link to pay the $50 fee via email after your registration is confirmed. (Please allow 10 days to receive.)

In addition to Summer Camps, Extension offers weekly Young Artist Workshops, Teen Programs for high school students, and a 4-week intensive college immersion program, Summer of Art, for students 15 and older. All courses take place at Otis College of Art and Design's Elaine and Bram Goldsmith Campus on Lincoln Blvd., unless otherwise noted. For further information, contact Otis College Extension's K-12 and Pre-College Programs office at k12@otis.edu or 310-665-6850.
