Summer Camp @ CREATE!- Virtual

*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 08/27/2021
Join us for ONSITE and ONLINE art adventures from June 14th through August 28th! When school is out for the summer, art is in at CREATE! Each week of summer camp will bring new art adventures. Our experienced teaching artists inspire creativity by teaching a variety of art-making techniques, and by exploring the styles of artists to help our campers draw inspiration for their own artwork. The week-long sessions allow for both multi-day and single-day projects, giving our campers the opportunity to work with a variety of materials, including watercolor and tempera paints, clay, plaster, oil pastels, and more. At the end of the week, each child will go home with a portfolio filled with original artwork! Project types include pottery, sculpture, drawing, painting, cartooning, collage, mixed media and more!

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

Due to COVID concerns, and in order to follow guideline from the Maryland Department of Health and the CDC, we will be implementing a number of strict changes to create a socially-distanced on-site experience.
