Art is a community-building tool that can unify communities and help youth succeed. Each year, Studio 2500 holds a summer art camp for youth ages 9 – 18 from mid-July to early August. Elementary through high school-aged students learn about the fundamentals of art and social and emotional wellness. Art camp takes place for three weeks during the summer and gives students an opportunity to color “outside the lines” and reduce stress through creation. Studio 2500’s art camp fills the gap between school semesters by building upon what’s learned in academic classes and teaches communication, fine motor skills, and emotional intelligence.
Our paced learning encourages kids to interact in a constructive way. The collaborative work helps build self-esteem. We hold classes for 10 students at a time Monday through Friday. We work with a variety of artistic mediums such as painting, drawing, sculpting, and 3D projects. Summer art camp is FREE and costs parents nothing to have their kids partake. Local community partners sponsor the art camp to help us provide this source of enrichment for the children.
