Summer Virtual Art Camp for Kids

Explore and create online June 21 - August 13, 2021

CREATE, MAKE FRIENDS AND SHARE YOUR CREATIONS! 

Registration is coming soon!

PAFA’s award-winning art camp is going virtual again! As we continue to navigate a COVID-19 world safely, our creative team and spirited young artists will come together for a 24th summer of fun, friends and art-making. Building on the successes of last summer, virtual camp days have been laid out by professional educators with the developmental needs of campers in mind. Virtual camp days will include a well-balanced mixture of:  

  • Live Zooming and friendship-making time (prescheduled so your family can plan ahead!) 
  • Off-screen activities for independent play and learning (and naps! and yard time!) 
  • Hands-on activities with real art materials (art camp should be a little messy!) 
  • Small group sizes ensure that campers receive high quality instruction and individual attention from their teachers. 
  • Daily movement and mindfulness exercises integrated throughout the day to get the wiggles out  

Camp tuition includes an Art Toolbox mailed to your home and a live exhibition every Friday that the whole family can attend, even those living far away.   

Registration opens soon and we frequently sell out. Email artcamp@pafa.org to make sure you get the announcement.

Testimonials from 2020 virtual camp parents

My three kids (Tate, Conor, and Colette) all attended virtual camps at PAFA this summer. I am blown away by not only the art they produced but also the engagement and experience. I was dubious about virtual camp - as I am sure you all were, too - and I was proved wrong.  The teaching was excellent. I am looking forward to a post-COVID world to spend time in Philly and to see PAFA in person. Thank you so much.” 

 

Njabulo really enjoyed the camp!  He was excited in the morning for art camp to start and he was sad when it was over.  The projects were fun and engaging. The summer camp staff did a great job of putting the virtual camp together in a short time frame. It was wonderful to have planned activities and supplies that I did not have to organize myself. Keeping kids active this year has been especially challenging.
