SPRING BREAK ART CAMP -

Sure school’s out, but why stop creating? With the Indianapolis Art Center’s Spring Break Art Camps, campers will work with our team of professional teaching artists to not only hone their skills in the studio but also learn to better express themselves and have tons of fun in a welcoming and creative environment! With a variety of activities including painting, drawing, and sculpting, your young artist will come back from spring break with a handful of new masterpieces and plenty of friends and stories to share too.
