Summer Camps + Teen Intensives - Ages 4-18

 

In response to the situation with COVID-19, the Art Center has made the following changes to the Summer 2020 Art Camps: 

  • Art camps originally scheduled for the month of June have been transformed into online programs. Families have the option of either transferring to these options or receiving a refund.  
  • Art camps scheduled for the month of July have also been adapted to offer online programs. Families now have the choice to participate virtually or on-site.  

 

The Indianapolis Art Center will continue to deliver high quality art education to our students and precautionary steps will be taken every step of the way to ensure the safety of all. Like many of you, we value the arts and the opportunities that Summer Art Camp presents for youth and teens alike. We want to be there for our young creative students during these uncertain times and hope that the sight of a familiar counselor or a friendly camper brings smiles to our campers!  

 

Special note: Those outside of the Indianapolis area are welcome to enroll in our online camps and classes. We have the option to have material kits shipped to you for a flat fee of $20 per enrollment, however large items such as canvas cannot be shipped and would need to be purchased at your local art supply retailer. For any June adult classes, the deadline to ship is May 28, for youth and teen camps the deadline is 5 business days before the start of the camp. To have your material kit shipped, please contact guest services at 317.255.2464 or by email at Info@IndplsArtCenter.orgPlease note: Kits can only be shipped to those outside the Indianapolis area.

WHAT IS AN INTERACTIVE ONLINE ART CAMP? 

Interactive Online art camps are flexible, week-long and home-based art experiences newly designed with families, creative kids and teens in mindWith a combination of printed and online resources, and live and pre-recorded videos streamed from our studios, we will connect virtually and make art! 

  • Same professional teaching artists guiding lessons and connecting with students virtually; the same team you’ve learned to trust. 
  • Virtual class meetings will take place through Zoom during the times listed in the camp details on the camp registration page accessed once you click on the camp. The times listed below are our suggested work times for your camp projects, but you are free to work in a schedule that best suits you. A link to access your Zoom camp will be provided in your welcome letter.
  • Scheduled live video streaming on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; engaging blocks of time that can be easily worked into your family’s schedule. Families will receive Zoom details and a guide to support your virtual connection 
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays will be working studio days; when students can work on their assigned projects and connect virtually with instructors if they wish.  
  • Camps will follow the typical structure, one or two lessons per day with our team of teaching artists demonstrating techniques and guiding students through the process.  
  • We invite families to join along and help motivate students as they learn and create with us, and work on their various projects at home. We’ll celebrate students’ work via virtual galleries! 
  • Material kits will be made available to families via curbside pickup. Those registered in clay camps will receive a kit with clay tools and Remix clay, and we’ll coordinate glazing and firing process with you.  
  • Virtual camps will reflect a 30% discount compared to regular on-site camps, material kits included.
