The Bowdoin Summer Art Camp is a fully-supervised day in the art studio that nurtures seeing, exploration, and creativity in young people.  No experience or expertise is necessary.

During the Summer of 2014, classes took place June 23 - June 27; June 30 - July 3 (no classes took place on the July 4th holiday); July 7 - July 11; and July 14 - July 18. Dates for Art Camp '15 will be released in the Spring.

Ages 5-6 attend 9:00am-Noon.

Ages 7-15 attend 9:00am-3:00pm.

Who: Art Camp is open to children ages 5-15 with the enthusiasm for the process of making art, and a willingness to experiment with new ways of seeing. Each session is designed to work as a separate unit, but a child may enroll in more than one session as long as he or she is in the appropriate age group.

The age groups are as follows: Ages 5-6 years (or entering Kindergarten or 1st grade); Ages 7-9 years (or entering 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grade); Ages 10-12 years (or entering 5th, 6th, or 7th grade); and Ages 13-15 (or entering 8th, 9th, or 10th grade.)

Where: Art Camp will now take place at the new Edwards Arts Center on the Bowdoin College campus. The Edwards Arts Center is the former Longfellow Elementary School located between Lonfellow Avenue and South Street.  The entrance to the EAC is located on South Street. The new facility boasts state-of-the-art classrooms, climate control, and a lovely outdoor space for breaks.
