Summer Art Camps & Teen Summer Workshops

The focus of our summer art camps and workshops is all about creativity and fun! No matter what path we end up taking in life, creativity expands our options and allows us a different view of the world around us. Our goal is to offer projects that encourage children and teens to use their imaginations, explore different media and develop practical skills as a maker of art.
See you this summer!

Review by a parent about summer camp:
“The summer art series at the Ohio Craft Museum are the best art and crafting experiences we have found for our daughter in all of Central Ohio by far! We have loved that the themes of each week have allowed for both structure and deep creativity, while the variety of materials the students are able to explore is unmatched. It is perfect for young people of all artistic experiences and gives children a wonderful opportunity to dive far into their imaginations. We are so very grateful that such enriching crafting experiences are available!”
