UT offers art camps for kids in elementary through middle school and junior high

Camps for Elementary and Middle School Students
August 6-10

The children’s camp offers two workshops each day, one in the morning and a different one in the afternoon. Both run Monday through Friday, August 6-10. The theme of the morning workshop is “Wizard Camp.” Children will do projects in across a range of art methods and materials. The afternoon camp theme is “Art Around the World.” These will be different countries from those in June. Participants will learn about and try their hands at art forms traditional to certain regions of the world. If possible, each of the workshops in the children’s camp will be divided into two parts by age – ages 7-10 and ages 11-13. The topics will be the same for each, but the pace and complexity will match their age group. There will be a break between the morning and afternoon sessions, with supervision of students who stay for both workshops. Students staying all day are encouraged to bring a lunch and beverage, as lunch is not provided. Each workshop is $60 or $105 for both. All materials used in the workshops is included.
