Child Art Class

Summer Youth Camps

Join Us for a Summer of Learning, Creativity, and Exploration

This program will be offered fully in person for summer 2022.

Summer Youth Camps at Otis College offer exciting and engaging art programs for children ages 5-14. These 5-day, week long camps will run for eight weeks this summer – from Monday, June 13th through Friday, August 5th. Camps begin at 9 a.m. and end at 4:15 p.m. (5-8 year olds will have a half day or full day option). Before care will be available from 7:30-9:00 a.m. and after care will be available from 4:15-6:00 p.m.

Students have an opportunity to explore a specific art and design focus within a collaborative and supportive learning environment. Camp projects introduce the elements and principles of art and design through different media ranging from puppet making and graphic design to folk art and ceramics.
