Art Campers sharpen artistic talents and gain new skills at this fantastic art camp in Kansas City. Budding artists will practice skills in a variety of mediums and be challenged according to their skill level. We will also go on an art field trip each week.

Our Art Camp Director is Rachel Elyachar who is an Art Teacher in the Blue Valley School District. Sign up for one week or multiple weeks. Each Art Camp session will focus on a different art theme. Art projects will be displayed at the Camp Art Exhibit at the end of the session.
