Teen Art Camp

Mon–Fri, July 31–Aug 4, 9am–3pm
For students entering grades 7–10


Strathmore raises the art of summer camp to a new level, with an integrated creative experience that’s ideal for young artists. 

Teens spend summer days immersed in a working gallery on an arts campus, surrounded by the beauty of our Mansion architecture.

Teen camp features exercises to explore and define who are you as an artist, opportunities to learn how to talk about art, how to describe your own work, how to ask questions, and how to constructively critique your peers.

With renowned art instructor Rosana Azar at the helm, Strathmore arts campers receive a deeply enriching experience.

This year, students will explore diverse cultures through art, creating work inspired by traditional and contemporary artists from many parts of the world.
