Summer Intensive and kid's Art Camp
New Schedule! June 6-August 12 2022
The prestigious West California Academy of Art and Design Summer Intensive Portfolio Prep and Kids Art
Take advantage of Summer and enjoy a season of creativity or create a portfolio for high school, college, supplemental, or college transfer.
Our priority is to give your child a general fundamental understanding of art and design with your choice of 1 week or a full 10 week(s) of summer fun! We strive to give youth the environment and knowledge that develops their skills in a fun and positive experience. Summer camps include a wide range of creativity, skills, rigor, indoor and outdoor activities, and a range of materials and experiences that include art appreciation, history and theory included at any level.
Since each camp includes a range of ages and skill-levels, campers are divided into smaller groups within the camp, enabling counselors to work with their group at their creative skill level. Join us this summer for a week of imagination, and creativity!
Activities include: oil/acrylic painting, print making, crafts, watercolor, recycled sculptures, collage, mixed media projects, digital making, sketching T-shirt, tie-dye, mosaics, color theory, and many more amazing projects! The camps also include break time for outdoor activities, games, group and individual activities.

We’re leading the way in art education that prepares our students to thrive in their future. Our art program will immerse them in a rigorous and well-rounded curriculum that prepares them to be the creative leaders of tomorrow.
If every investment we made into a child’s education were to accrue interest similar to a monetary bond, we would find the payouts reaching far beyond any available interest rate.
When we look at today's children, we see tomorrow's leaders. Every parent should invest in their children for a long-term benefit.
