Artspace’s summer youth art classes offer a great alternative to summer camp

ArtSpaceSummer will be here before you know it. Heck, it’s already May. And if you count Memorial Day as the unofficial start of the season, the clock is winding down.

Like more Triangle families, you’re probably starting to piece together a summer calendar of activities. Beach? Mountains? A National Park maybe?

If you’re going to have a few weeks of down-time here at home, consider enrolling the kids in one of ArtSpace’s weeklong art camps.

ArtSpace is a terrific local advocate and resource for the arts, and has long been a staple of Downtown Raleigh.

Its summer programs are specifically set up for different grade levels, ranging from K-2 all the way to grades 7-10. The art camps start in mid-June and run until August 14, so your calendar has a number of options.

You can view a copy of the program catalog here.

Some of the class projects include puppet making, animal sculpture, painting & drawing, mixed media cityscapes, floorcloths, soft sculpture, and urban sketching.

The media formats and subjects are widely varied, and sure to excite the young Picassos and growing Warhols you have at home.
