Summer Art Camps

Ages vary 
Free and supplies included with RSVP
*lunch not included

Every Summer, the Urban Arts Space education team organizes free arts camps for school-age students. Campers immerse themselves in a topic by participating in arts, crafts, and activities relating to the theme. The camp culminates each year with a reception for friends and family where the kids present what they have made and learned.
