Summer Camp

Every week is a new artistic adventure and celebration of creativity and friendship at PAFA's award winning art camp. Designed for all skill levels, activities may include drawing, painting, sculpture, comic books, and mixed media, as well as friendship-making and play time. Campers will try new ideas, materials, methods, and approaches to art and design; expand problem solving and social engagement skills; increase understanding of themselves; and gain self-reliance and self-confidence. Small group sizes ensure that campers receive high quality instruction and individual attention from their teachers while making exciting, hands-on art projects.
