Summer Art Camp 2021

JUNE 28 TO AUGUST 20 2021

Registration

The Foreman Art Gallery’s summer art camp returns this year with a new theme each week to capture the interest of our imaginative youth! With specialized art educators, campers discover the wealth of materials and techniques used by artists.

While trying their hand at different art forms, campers will learn about the work of traditional and contemporary artists. At the end of each week, campers share their creations in an exhibition at the Community Art Lab and the Foreman Art Gallery.

Located at Bishop’s University, our summer art camp offers an inspirational setting with the opportunity to work in a real artist’s studio, as well as access to the lush campus grounds and an outdoor pool!

The Foreman Art Gallery art camp is a wonderful opportunity for children to grow artistically. They are able to create exciting projects using various mediums. The art educators provide positive encouragement to the children making for a fun-filled week, located on such a beautiful campus! My daughter thoroughly enjoyed her creative week!
