This exciting program is carefully designed with promising young artists in mind. Students attend classes for three hours each day with a break for refreshments (provided by River Oaks). Summer Art Studio is held in the Studio Annex Building of River Oaks Square Arts Center.  Each camp session incorporates projects using a variety of media. There will be ceramic projects, painting projects, etc. during each session. Every new student learns basic ceramic procedures like pinch, slab and coil methods of construction, and returning students jump right in and start creating.. Below we have highlighted just a few of the projects that will take place during the summer sessions.

Our ceramics and painting studios are modern and fully equipped. Our instructors are working artists and art educators, selected based on their history of successful projects and programs with local youth. We are certainly excited about the upcoming summer sessions and hope you choose to send your young artist to Summer Art Studio for one or more of our unique camps.
Note that registration is limited to only 45 students per session
