STUDIO CLASSES
Throughout the year, City ArtWorks offers studio art classes for all ages. The after school classes for 1st-8th graders are based on our core Art After School curriculum, each class explores an art movement or artist and applies that information in hands-on art making. This includes exploration of a variety of visual arts techniques and mediums including painting, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, collage and more.  In addition, we offer ArtSmart classes for ages 3-5.  City ArtWorks' community studio offers specialized programs for all ages with free family workshops throughout the year.We offer private lessons upon request and can form a class for groups of 5 or more directly matching the groups' schedule and interests.

FALL CLASSES

Fall classes at the community studio begin in late September and registration is open now! Our fall class schedule is very similar to what we offered in the spring but we have more! Curious? You can click here for the full spring 2014 community studio class schedule.

SUMMER CAMPS

OVERVIEW OF ART SUMMER CAMPS
Click here to register for summer camps

Every summer, City ArtWorks offers 10 weeks of art camp (June 9 to August 22) at our community studio that include sculpture, clay, printmaking, drawing, painting, and other visual art mediums. For children ages 3 to 15, summer art camp classes encourage creative problem solving, help develop critical thinking skills, and expose children to visual arts concepts and history. But most of all, City ArtWorks' Summer Art Camp is fun, and a great way for kids to connect with other young artists! Children can sign up for a week, multiple weeks, half day or full day options. 

READY TO SIGN UP FOR SUMMER CAMPS?

 

This summer we invite your children to join us for amazing art camps focused on learning and applying specific techniques, creative and educational projects, and fun and varied art materials. Click here for camp descriptions.

We are offering 10 weeks of art camps and each camp will have unique themes and specialized techniques that will explore the multifaceted world of art for different age groups. We are also offering new ways to extend camp times through certain back to back camp options and Art Studio options which are opportunities to enrolled artists to have self-directed time to work longer and more in depth with their art. See below for more information about these opportunities. Click here for camp dates, times and schedules.

SUMMER CAMP EXTENSION OPTIONS
City ArtWorks has been listening to parent feedback and as a stepping stone to next summer in 2015 when we hope to offer full day camps, we are providing parents with ways to extend some of our 2 hour camps into half day camp options. Please feel free to contact the office for guidance or questions in regards with adding the following:

  • Morning Art Studio for Imagination camps from 9:00-10:30am (Week 3, 6, 9 ). Click here  for details.

  • 5-6 year old special multi-level option - ArtSmart for 3-5 yr olds AND Imagination camps for 5-12 yr olds overlap in age and are available to 5-6 year olds. So consider doing back to back camps! (Week 2, 5, 8)
  • 2 camps in a row option for 5-12 year olds - All Imagination camps are different this year so you can sign up your child for 2 Imagination camps in a row! (Week 2, 5, 8) 
  • 2-3 camps in a row option for 9+ year olds - Children that are 9+ in age are eligible to attend the Imagination camps, Exploration camps and the Exploration Art Studio making for a full day on specific weeks! (Week 1, 4, 7, 10)
