Summer Camps for kids! Thank you for attending!

Session 1: July 8-12, 9 am - noon
Session 2: August 12-16, 9 am - noon

Art Camp at The Westport Art Group is appropriate for children ages 6 (entering grade one) through 11 years.

Come join us for fun-filled art activities where children will experience creative artistic expression in a supportive, comfortable gallery setting, taught by a qualified elementary art instructor and assisted by another adult artist. A variety of materials and topics will be explored including, but not limited to, paints, printmaking, 3-D form, crafts, drawing and collage. Our goal is to encourage the children to explore the topic of the day and the art material of the day through their own creative style.

Camp is limited to 12 children. Scholarships are available; please inquire by emailing info@westportartgroup.com.

If you’d like to register more than one child, you will need to fill out a separate form for each child as directed when you “Add to Cart”.

If you’d rather sign up via mail, please download the Registration Form.

Community Service opportunity is available for high school age students during the art camps to assist the camp director with set up, clean up and general organization. Please indicate your interest by sending an email to info@westportartgroup.com.

The Westport Art Group is very pleased to announce the recipients of the 2019 WAG Scholarships.

The initial recipient of the recently established Clara M. Stewart Memorial Scholarship is Hanna August. This Scholarship was established through the generosity of Clara M. Stewart, an artist, art teacher and long time member of the Westport Art Group. Hanna August, a 2019 Westport High School graduate, will receive this $1,500 award and attend Bridgewater State University to pursue a degree in Art Education.

2019 Dartmouth High School graduate Tara Couto received a $1,500 Westport Art Group Scholarship. Tara has been accepted to Massachusetts College of Art and intends to study Illustration.

We wish both of our scholarship winners great success in their college endeavors!
