Art Camp & Pre-Teen Studios at Main Line Art Center
WILD ABOUT ART! | June 15-August 28 | Ages 4-12

At Main Line Art Center in Haverford, WILD ABOUT ART is clay under your fingernails as you sculpt a creature you just invented. It's a smock so smattered with paint that even Jackson Pollock would be proud. It's upgrading your art from refrigerator-worthy to gallery-wall-worthy…and then seeing it there! Art Camp goes wild from June 15-August 28 in 11 weeklong sessions, and is open to ages 4 for half day mornings and ages 5 to 12 for half and full days. This year's theme, WILD ABOUT ART, will bring out the artistic animal in your young artist. Animals and their habitats will serve as inspiration for our masterpieces, and our studies will take us deep undersea, soaring high above the treetops, and to imaginary lands. Sure the art projects are awesome, but it's the process that teaches collaboration, critical thinking, problem-solving, self-expression, and more. But please don't tell our campers…they have so much fun painting, building, and sculpting that they don't realize they are learning! Before care, after care and lunch care are available. Pre-Teens have their own special program where they can choose to focus on a single medium like digital photography, ceramics, and more. Discounts for multiple sessions and siblings, and scholarships and financial assistance is available. Call us today for a brochure, or learn more on our website.
