FUN ART CAMP IDEAS FOR SUMMER

SUMMER KIDS ART CAMP

Kids love to create, and kids of all ages will have so much fun with this art summer camp!

Kids will get to learn about famous artists and make art inspired by them, as well as explore different art mediums and methods to unlock their own creativity!

ART ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS THIS SUMMER

Summer can be a busy time, so we didn’t add any projects that will take a ton of time or prep to make these activities possible. Most of these can be done quickly, with variations, reflection, and questions extending the activity as you have time to do so. However, if you have the time, feel free to linger and enjoy the activities too!

Kids who participate in this Art Summer Camp will get to:

  • Paint.
  • Create with paper.
  • Experiment with new methods.
  • Learn to recognize famous artists.
  • …and more!

TEACHING KIDS WITH ART

Art projects are for so much more than just a break from “regular” school work. Allowing kids to tap into their creative side by teaching them new methods of art actually engages a different part of their brain than core subjects.

Kids who participate in this summer art camp will learn about several famous artists and create projects inspired by them. They will get to experiment with different art mediums and methods, and even get to create art with unorthodox materials.

Art projects also help with color coordination, fine motor skills, patterns, scissor skills, and develop independence as well! Combining art and science with STEAM projects, is one of our favorite ways to learn!

POPSICLE ART

Create this fun and colorful summer pop art inspired by Andy Warhol!

ICE CREAM ART

Make this fun ice cream art with your own style and flair! Each one of these comes out differently, and I love to see each student’s work on these projects!
