About SmART Space…
Returning this summer for our 9th year of innovative art making, SmART Space continues to give young artists the opportunity to explore their creativity under the direction of expert teaching artists.
Each session of camp young artists will be inspired by different themes and art periods as they explore the exciting world of creativity through a variety of hands-on art activities. Art lessons and workshops are inspired by our SmART Space teaching artists, master artists, cultural art, art history, various techniques and our own unique ideas!
A large selection of materials are always used in our workshops, and projects include painting, clay-working, drawing, mosaics, sun-painting, paper mache, collage, sculpture and much more! Each day includes specialized art workshops, as well as imagination games and outdoor play, all to make for a stimulating and action-packed camp experience.
FOR ALL CAMPS: Please pack a healthy snack, water, and lunch each day. As an environmentally friendly camp, we recommend that you bring a “garbage free” lunch in reusable containers when ever possible.

“Just wanted to thank-you… Both Jillian and Morgan had entertaining and enriching experiences with you, your staff and colleagues… Thank you again for all your work and compassion with the children in teaching them about themselves and the artists within them.” Lisa, Mom of Morgan (5) and Jillian (7)
“I was just looking through the thorough compilation of pictures from this past Winter Art camp and became overwhelmed by such gratitude. Thank you for taking such care in creating a program that is safe, fun and packed with learning… Sydney has soaked up every last bit of information you’ve packed into the past year’s classes. I believe by understanding art and how it connects with life, she is opening up to a new way of learning. And that touches every part of her life.” Tricia, Mom of Sydney 6
