Art in the park is where qualified artists/teachers are committed to nurturing a person's love for creating art--whatever their age, interest, or skill level may be!

Each camper brings home four fantastic masterpieces, and creative inspiration to create even more. We have a BLAST at these camps, working with a variety of media, studying artists, and of course saving plenty of time to explore, discover, inspire, and create!
