Summer is the best time to explore and experiment with art! Guilford Art Center offers half-day and full-day programs for children from age 3 ½ to 13 years from June 19 – Aug 18. Our professional instructors lead classes in all types of media, including sewing, ceramics, pottery on the wheel, painting, drawing and much more. Each week offers a range of themes geared towards specific age groups. Have little ones? Consider art explorations, princesses and dragons, the art of Dr. Seuss, or oceans of fun. Kids a little older (5+) can explore themes such as movie art, American Girls, mystical creatures, art of Star Wars, architecture or medieval times. Teens can explore their inner creativity through shorter workshops for blacksmithing and mixed media applications.
Every child is sure to find something that matches their interest and passion when they Make Time for Kids Art this Summer!
Children can attend a morning class (9-12pm) or afternoon class (1-4pm) or both. For a full-day program, a morning class may be combined with an afternoon class. Supervised “bridge” care is available for these students, between 12-1 pm.
