Art Space Youth Camp

Every June and July, RCA hosts its flagship summer program ArtSpace: Summer Art Explorations for Kids & Teens.  Local children entering grades 1-8 in the upcoming school year are able to attend a full week of art camp for free.  During the week we expose children to as many art media as can fit into a week including drawing, painting, mixed media, collage and even pottery!  All students leave camp with a kiln fired piece of pottery they created!  This summer will be the 22nd annual summer season.

The goals of this program are to teach children to: be sensitive to the art around them; recognize the basic elements, principles and vocabulary of art; challenge imaginations through reflective thinking; develop and organize ideas; creatively express thoughts and ideas through performance; develop disciplined effort and problem-solving skills; produce works of art using a variety of art materials and tools; produce works of art using both traditional and innovative techniques; and make informed judgments about personal artworks and those of others, and to build self-esteem.
