Visual Art Camps

Not just about drawing and painting. You may learn printmaking, make a book, create cartoons, or build sculptures. Some sessions incorporate nature, yoga, and even cooking. Messy Art is quite popular and is the perfect "not-in-my-house activity" for summer camp.

Durham Arts Council hosts two-week camps with country-based themes.

For comic creations, check out Carolina Friends School and the JCC.

Clay camps can be found at Carolina Friends, Triangle Day, and Trinity schools.
