The arts are an essential component for the development and well being of all people. Main Street Art is dedicated to providing a place of education where children, teens, adults and seniors can come together to experience, appreciate and participate in the arts in an environment where creative efforts are shared and made accessible to everyone.

Summer Camps will conclude with a Summer Camp Showcase. This showcase will feature the artwork created by campers throughout the summer. Campers are encouraged to leave their favorite pieces after their camp week ends (work will be returned after the Showcase closes in September.)  Students and their families and friends are invited to attend the opening reception of the Showcase on Friday, August 17.

Please see below for weekly Summer Camps with a new theme each session. Days are split from 9am-12pm for children ages 5-8 and 2pm-5pm for children ages 9-13.

    I love the way you have set up these camp classes. You have them seperate by ages one under another. Makes it easy to find.
