We offer three different sessions that rotate twice throughout the summer. Students should register for each theme only once. Content will be the same for both offerings.

BOLD CITY ART: June 15-19 AND July 13-17

Explore the landscape, culture, and local art scene of Jacksonville for inspiration to create bold mixed media works of art. Campers will interact with some of Jacksonville’s most notable contemporary artists to learn how they do their professional practice.  


Kick it old school by looking to the past to learn about artists and movements of the 1960s and 70s that will inspire your own retro creations.

PASSPORT TO ART: July 6 – 10 AND July 27-31

Visit faraway lands to learn about art, craft, and culture from around the globe. Countries to explore include Mexico, Korea, Russia, and more!



Each camp session will run Monday through Friday. Every day of camp will include live virtual lessons, online interactions with camp staff and other students, as well self-paced work offline. Campers will need to be logged into the online camp platform every day for the live component of camp.
