Summer Art Camp 2016
 
The Delaware Contemporary offers six sessions of summer camps for ages 4 – 15. Participants will work with professionally trained Teaching Artists and have full access to the galleries. Campers will explore contemporary takes on a number of art techniques, including painting, drawing, and sculpture. 
 
In addition to regular camp hours (listed below) optional weekly pre-camp (8 – 10 am*) and post-camp (4 – 6 pm*) sessions are available for an additional fee. Each Friday at 3:30 pm there will be an art exhibition of the campers’ work for friends and family.
