Summer Camps & Teen Intensives - Ages 4-18


Join us for a summer of art education, fun and new friendships! In the Indianapolis Art Center's Summer Art Camps and Teen Intensives, students work with professional artists to explore new media, improve their artistic skills, express themselves creatively and gain a deeper appreciation for the visual arts in a nurturing artistic community.

We believe that by participating in the creative process, campers will develop communication, interpersonal and critical thinking skills while they gain a deeper appreciation for the visual arts.

Campers will enjoy all the perks of attending camp at the Indianapolis Art Center. Each
week campers will work in professional-quality studios and have exclusive access to the Art Center's galleries and 9.5-acre outdoor art garden, the ArtsPark, which is filled with murals, & installations and outdoor sculptures. Each camp is led by a Teaching Artist and a Camp Counselor with an adult-to-camper ratio of 1:10. Our staff is excited to work in a fun atmosphere and we look forward to a wildly artistic summer with you and your family!
