Youth Classes

Summer Art Camps

The Emerson offers week-long summer camps for ages 5–12. Each week will include 2D, sculpture, and mixed media projects. Every camp culminates with an artist reception on Friday afternoon. Emerson camps are filled with innovative art projects that are designed to let your child’s creativity grow!

Camps hours are Monday thru Friday from 9am – 3pm. No camp the week of July 4th.

Artist reception opens at 2pm on Friday. Parents, siblings, grandparents, and friends are invited to join us in the Emerson Ballroom for the reception. Your camper will be very excited to show you what they have created during their camp!



Full payment is expected at the time of registration.

Limited scholarship funds are available.
