Create COOL art this summer!  The Arts Council is offering 11 WEEKS of camp for 5-16 year-olds, led by our incredible, professional teaching artists.

Young artists can try their hand at painting, mixed media, fiber arts, clay and more! Teen and tweens will dive more deeply into various mediums to immerse themselves in a week of creativity.

Scholarships are available — shoot us an email to learn more. 

Online Camps: We hope you and your children are able to join us as we continue our mission of ‘Building Community through the Arts’ and support our local art instructors through online camps.  Daily art making will include instructor demonstrations, informal critiques, and group art making sessions, all while maximizing interaction between other campers and the instructor through the virtual classroom.

In-Person Camps: The Arts Council is closely monitoring local and state safety guidelines around COVID-19. In-person camps will follow current New Jersey health guidelines – we will be limiting class sizes, following social distance guidelines, and doing temperature checks upon entry, as well as sanitizing frequently. Masks are required at all times during classes and camps. COVID Cancellation Policy: If it becomes no longer feasible to hold a camp due to state or federal COVID-19 safety guidelines, parents will be advised and given credit to take another camp or class of equivalent value valid for a full calendar year.
