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, drama, and even food. Messy Art is quite popular and is the perfect "not-in-my-house activity" for summer camp.

The Lawson Academy of Fine Arts at Converse College offers a multi-arts experience where campers take daily classes in art, music, creative writing, dance, acting, and theatre skills. Each two-week session has a different theme.

The Fine Arts Center also hosts a multi-discipline camp which includes classes like Drums & Shakers, Painting on Canvas, Intro to Architecture, and Drama & Improv.

Comics and cartooning can be found at Christ Church Episcopal School and The Arts Center of Clemson.

Interesting themes include Imaginary Creatures at Roper Mountain Science Center, Portraits & Selfies at The Arts Center of Clemson, Floor Cloth Painting at Vino and Vangough, and Travel Around the World at Greenville Center for Creative Arts.

Also check out art camps at the YMCA.
