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.

Schedule: Classes run on a weekly basis and are broken up by age groups. For the Summer of 2015, classes will run June 29 - July 3*; July 6 - July 10; July 13 - July 17; and July 20 - July 24.

*Classes may not take place on July 3rd due the Bowdoin College being closed. This date is TBD.

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.
