Art Camps for Kids

The Ann Arbor Art Center offers Art Camps during winter, spring, and summer breaks. These art camps are designed to cultivate cognitive development through hands-on art projects that leverage collaboration, experimentation, critical thinking, and problem-solving.

Creativity Camps: Ages 5-12

Each day, our Creativity Camps are packed with fun and challenging activities that balance learning and play. Campers may experiment with a variety of mediums such as graphite, paint, pastels, charcoal, watercolor, sculptural materials, and more.
Although we provide a lot of traditional art instruction, we also encourage campers to take what they’ve learned and apply it to outside-the-box projects. Past projects have included: painting cars, making giant animal book sculptures, creating anamorphic sidewalk chalk drawings, casting pewter keychains, and much more!

Clay Camps: Ages 9-12

Our Clay Camp curriculum is designed to teach the skills of pottery and to encourage the exploration of clay as a material for design, sculpture, and expression.
Each week, campers learn to throw on the wheel in the mornings. In the afternoons, campers learn a variety of handbuilding techniques to create stunning sculptures, tiles, or functional items.
