Young Vincents summer art classes are a blast! They run May – August in one-week sessions, and offer kids an opportunity for intensive study using a variety of mediums. Classes are designed to develop your child’s skill in watercolor, drawing, mixed media, sculpture and acrylic painting. Campers create original artwork inspired by our dynamic thematic curriculum receiving nurturing instruction from our teaching artists. Building kid’s confidence and having a great time doing it…that’s our goal!

Drawing: Students develop art skills through the foundation of drawing. Children build self- confidence while learning the art of contour, gesture, proportion and perspective. Students learn to use charcoal, graphite, pastels and pen & ink. The creative possibilities are endless.
Painting: Children naturally connect to their spirit of exploration when scooping up paint with a brush! Their journey is exciting as they learn about color, design and composition. Invaluable techniques teach children to express emotion, atmosphere, texture and movement.
Mixed-Media & Sculpture: Sculpt, collage, print and more! Kids explore their creativity and learn various hand building methods to create unique sculpture. Young Vincents experiment with different materials and mediums and use their imagination for endless possibilities!
During Summer 2023, we will continue to host a small art show with students only. Our young artists are encouraged to set up their own art shows at home after the last day of camp.
