Have Summer Fun While Drawing the Sun at ACAD!

What’s the secret to getting your child or teenager out of bed early in the summer? Sign them up for an ACAD Continuing Education course and they will literally spring out of bed! 

“I lucked out on the summer camp lottery – it’s raining, there’s a cool instructor, and my kids want to RUN to their classroom every morning!” (Eric Cramer, whose three sons took the summer 2016 Animate It! Camp for ages 9 – 12 year olds.)

ACAD’s teen courses and child camps are studio-based learning meaning your child learns by doing: imagining and making. The courses are held in the same professional studio environment where our degree students learn. Our instructors are all practicing professionals who have the added expertise of working with young students to help them grow their skills and ideas.

Your child will work with a variety of mediums and methods depending on the course.  We offer teen classes in jewelry, painting, drawing, sculpting, fashion, photography, screenprinting, design, animation, digital painting and more.  The summer camps for children ages 9 to 12 explore a particular theme, exposing your child to a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, clay, felting and collage. All the course supplies are included in the course fee and are the same high quality supplies used in the adult courses. Your child just needs to bring a lunch, snack, and a water bottle each day.

To cap off their week with us, all students are invited to exhibit their works in our Friday afternoon pop-up gallery.  The exhibition completes the unique experience that only ACAD can offer to you and your child.  Learning at ACAD is hands-on, fun, social and worthy of getting up early.
