Summer at the Museums
June 10th-August 9th

Join us for a summer of exploring the most well-known and interesting art museums around the world! Children will create in mixed media, painting, drawing, and clay during this Art Museum themed week. The Arts Center’s instructors will take the lead as your child learns about famous artists and the many different museums where their pieces call home. Join us on this adventure!

Arts Warehouse campers can register for the entire summer or for individual weeks throughout the summer according to their schedules and interest in the themes.

Off-Site Camps are in addition to the Anderson Arts Center Warehouse based camps and take place at different library site locations in Anderson County. The camps feature various art projects related to our featured theme. Locations and schedule will be announced SOON.

Summer Art Classes for Teens

This year we are adding a new component to Art Camp; Art Classes for 13-18 year olds. These classes are designed for older kids who want to learn to draw, paint, sculpt and throw clay (potter’s wheel) and experience a variety of mixed media art forms including fiber arts, collage, encaustic, found object sculpture and more. They will run 2 days per week in the afternoons for two weeks, rather than everyday all week, to allow for busy summer camp, sports and lesson schedules.

Ages 4 – 12: Half Day Camps at  the Anderson Arts Center
Ages 6 – 12: Full Day Camps at the Anderson Arts Center
Ages 6 – 12: Off-Site Camps in Anderson County
Ages 13 – 18: Teen classes at the Anderson Arts Center

Full day campers must bring a bag lunch with a drink Monday through Thursday. A pizza party will be provided on Friday!

Summer Arts Camp at The Arts Warehouse in Anderson

The Big Apple of Art Camps –  Warehouse Weekly Themes (Ages 4-12)

Week 1: June 11-15
Iconic and Everyday Sight-Seeing in NY City

We’ll start our summer in NY City by hopping on a double-decker bus tour, creating based on iconic landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, Times Square, Yankee Stadium, Rockefeller Center, and the Empire State Building.  Everyday items found in the Big Apple are some of the most important artifacts and instances of memorable design. We will spend time discovering everyday objects that are some of the most important artifacts and instances of memorable design in the Big Apple too!

Week 2: June 18-22
Nature in New York

When we think of big cities we think of concrete and skyscrapers but NY City also is home to America’s earliest natural attractions. We will explore the granddaddy of all New York’s natural attractions and wonders, Niagara Falls, the largest waterfall throwing 1.5 million gallons of water off the falls every second. We will explore the botanical side of New York: Central Park, The Floral District and the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. This week is about finding out where art and nature come together.

Week 3: June 25-29
The Wild Side of NY

After checking out the green side of NY City the natural next stop is the animals. The City is home to several zoos: the Bronx Zoo, Central Park and Tisch Children’s Zoo and Prospect Park Zoo. This week we will make art based on the beautiful animals that know this city as home.

Week 4: July 9-13
It’s a Small World

One of the major features of NY City is its incredible cultural diversity. This week we will be exploring some of the most populous ethnic neighborhoods in the city through customs, food for the body and art, food for the soul.

Week 5: July 16-20
Fashion Forward

NY City is well known as one of the fashion capitals of the world and the root of that is in the Garment District. This week we will explore the art of fashion and fibers. From weaving fibers and dyeing and printing and sewing fabric to fashion design and photography it’s all art.

Week 6: July 23-27
From MOMA to Graffiti

Art is everywhere in NY City from museums to galleries to street art; from masterworks to the art of everyday people. This week is the most self-indulgent yet. We will dive in to the vibrant visual art scene and artists of NY City and be inspired to create.

Week 7: July 30-August 3
From Broadway to Street Performers

Art is everywhere in NY City from Opera Houses and Broadway shows to community theaters and music venues to people on the streets performing for passersby. The Performing Arts include singing, dancing, acting and playing musical instruments. A lot also goes into performance art backstage. We will explore the visual art of props, costumes, masks, and make-up, lighting and promotion.

Week 8: August 6-10
As We Live and Move

We wrap up our summer in NY City with art focused on the architecture and transportation of NY City. Nothing says NY quite like the skyline, the subway, Yellow Taxis, The Ferry and the bridges. This week we will focus on form through sculpture in a variety of materials.
