Summer Art Camps

In 2018 we are offering three exciting Summer Art Camps for kids ages 6 through 18. Each camp runs Monday through Friday in the Art Tent located at Mahon Hall in Ganges. Kids and youth will spend the day in and around the tent, making art. There are supervised breaks for lunch, play and games.

Each camp introduces kids to a range of artistic mediums, styles and techniques through the explorations in art history and exploratory play. Art Camps are lead by professional artist mentor and an assistant.

We strive to provide an inspiring, fun and safe space for kids creativity to flourish. All our workshop instructors and staff undergo a criminal records check, and there is always a first aid certified staff person in attendance.

The Salt Spring Arts Council is committed to decreasing barriers to participation in children and youth programs.

Bursaries are available – Please apply by June 29. Apply Here.
