For artists entering K-2nd and 3rd-5th grades

Spend your summer in the studio! Each week of Summer Art Workshops is created around a big idea that is explored through drawing, painting, sculpture, collage and more! Projects include collaborative and skill building activities, as well as ongoing projects and free art time. Popular themes are repeated year-to-year, but the projects and art created are as unique as each group of artists.


Young artists work daily in their sketchbooks, lunch in the park, and take trips around the neighborhood to find sources of inspiration. Camp sessions are limited to 15 artists per class, with at least one adult per five students for plenty of one-on-one attention. 


ESScp Summer Art Workshops feature two classrooms, each with a dedicated Teaching Artist, for artists of different ages.

$600 for one week;
$575/week for multiple weeks
5% discount for siblings
