Kravis Arts Camp
Whether students are just establishing an interest in art or are working to develop and improve their skills, the Kravis Summer Arts camp has a little something for everyone.
This two-week long summer camp provides an opportunity for elementary, middle school, and high school students to explore and tap into their imaginations and challenges them to "Make Something Great."
The Kravis Arts Camp is divided into elementary, middle school, and high school camps, all with different goals:
The 18th year of Kravis Arts Camp for elementary school students promises artistic and creative experiences rarely found in the traditional classroom.
Instructors bring their favorite art media along with passion to share with campers each day.
Campers are involved in a variety of arts experiences - music, drama, dance, and art - which broaden their imaginations. The goal is to have each student explore new materials and art forms, stretch their creativity, enjoy the learning process, and make new friends.
The middle school Kravis Art Camp gives students an opportunity for art, music, and drama students to learn something new. Art students will explore canvas and fiber arts, music students will learn band skills and drama students will learn the fundamentals of comedy and acting.
The goal of this camp is to learn technical and artistic skills while going beyond the scope and content of the school year, so that you can pursue what you love.
The Kravis Summer Camp for high school students is designed to help them prepare a mature portfolio of work sought by undergraduate art schools.
Students will be immersed in visual and performance arts and will develop their artistic knowledge and techniques.
The goal is to prepare students to acquire scholarships to the top schools, to excel in the discipline of art they choose, and ultimately to become working professional artists.
All students participating are encouraged to be individuals with the drive and motivation to expand their artistic skills.

The photography course will cover a range of photographic techniques including darkroom and digital editing.

Students will also make prints that could be added to their portfolios.
This class will provide a safe space and guidance to students who are interested in creating a living work of art. Students will learn to implement creative techniques to best express their unique visions of the world through performative means. The instructor will help facilitate a final collaborative and public performance for the end of camp.
