Delve into the world of painting by exploring various mediums and techniques. Participants will experiment with different paints, from acrylics to watercolors and learn the art of layering, blending, and creating vibrant compositions. Join us for a week of artistic discovery, where each stroke brings a new hue to life.


McColl Center’s Creativity Camp is a series of week-long, full-day art camps designed for young artists in rising 2nd through 8th grades to spark imagination, encourage self-discovery, and make lifelong connections to many expressions of art.

Camp will run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at McColl Center, led by a professional artist who will teach skills in a particular medium and give individual support. Over the course of the week, students will develop technical and conceptual skills alongside their peers while producing an impressive body of work. At the conclusion of the summer, family and friends are invited to come view their child’s work on display at McColl Center’s Summer Showcase.

Cost: $375 per student.
