Join us for a summer of exploring our nation’s natural treasures, our National Parks! One of
them is right here in South Carolina! Each week will feature fantastic National Parks in a
specific geographic location and a look at artwork created to celebrate and promote them.
We will have a great time getting messy and creative with our own masterpieces inspired by the
beauty and biodiversity of the parks that we have learned about. We will work on age
appropriate projects with all kinds of materials and in several mediums including: Drawing,
Painting, Clay, Collage, Printmaking, Fibers, 3-D Non-Clay Sculpture and Design.

Join us this summer for one week of studio art making with professional local artists. This is open to teens ages 13-18 of all skill levels regardless of previous experience who are serious about pursuing art.

Off-Site Camps are in addition to the Anderson Arts Center Warehouse based camp.

Study music, theatre, and visual art all in one action-packed camp week!

This camp is a unique partnership between the Anderson Arts Center, Market Theatre, and Sounds of Carolina – all housed in the downtown Arts Center Warehouse! The week will culminate with a wrap party, gallery opening and performance showcase on Friday afternoon. This is open to kids of all skill levels regardless of previous experience.
