Summer Art Escape 2024


This summer, our theme is Mashup! Make art, friends, and memories as we bring different ideas together to create new concepts. Shake it up! Mix and match colors, textures, sounds, subjects, styles, and/or mediums. Each day, our Instructors will lead students through fun, age-appropriate activities covering a variety of visual and performing art mediums. 

Summer Art Escape will meet daily from Monday through Friday during each week-long session, starting at 7:30am and ending at 6:00pm. Unstructured free play will be held from 7:30am to 9am, allowing for staggered arrival times, and from 5pm to 6pm, so pickup does not interfere with planned class lessons. Student breaks during the day include active play. We may go outside, weather and heat index permitting. Students should bring two (2) healthy snacks (AM, PM), a lunch that does not require refrigeration or heating, a water bottle, closed-toe shoes, and art/movement appropriate clothing. Students will be grouped by age.
