Summer Art Escape

Program Overview

Throughout each camp day, our Instructors will lead students through fun, age-appropriate, TEKS-based activities covering a variety of visual and performing arts. Make projects. Make friends. Make a mess. Make memories.

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 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.

City of Austin staff, facilities, and students will follow the most current Austin Public Health COVID-19 safety guidelines.
