Art Camp is open to children aged 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 the appropriate age.
Camp sessions will take place on the third floor of the Visual Arts Center, with additional use of facilities on the Bowdoin College campus. On the last day of each session, young artists will host their family and friends at an artist's reception on the 3rd Floor of the VAC.
