At this time, the Arts Council is closely monitoring local and state safety guidelines around COVID-19. Please scroll down for more details, and for a full listing of each week’s offerings.

Schedule for Online Camps: We hope you and your children are able to join us this summer, 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.

In-Person Camps: For in-person camps we will be following New Jersey health regulations – we will be limiting camp size, following social distance guidelines, and doing temperature checks upon entry, as well as sanitizing frequently. Masks are required to enter the building, and move about the building, but may be pulled down if a camper is at least 6 feet from other campers and adults. If any child in the camp tests positive, we will be checking with local health officials as to whether we need to shut down that week’s camp, in which case you would be entitled to a full refund or credit for any remaining days.
