Summer Camps for kids!
Registration for both sessions of summer art camp is currently wait listed. However, we have been awarded a grant from the Westport Cultural Council, a local agency supported in part by the Helen E. Ellis Charitable Trust administered by Bank of America, for five full camp scholarships. Therefore, we are now taking scholarship applications for these five camp spots. There are three spots in the July 8-12 camp and two in the August 12-16 camp. Please complete the form below. All scholarship applications must be received by June 15, 2019.
Session 1: July 8-12, 9 am - noon
Session 2: August 12-16, 9 am - noon
$165 per week.
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 email@example.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.
A 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
