Where to Send Creative Kids to Camp

We’re big believers in exposing your kids to art often! It increases their fine motor skills; challenges their creative mind; and boost their confidence because in art, unlike so many other things, there’s no wrong answer and no winning team!

Visual Art Center of NJ has a fabulous summer camp for kids grades K to 5. You can sign up for camp for a week or more which is nice–no need to commit for the whole summer. Days go from 9:45 am to 3:15pm.

Kids will have a chance to explore painting, drawing, sculpture, and ceramics with some of the best teaching artists around during a fun-filled week of art. At their Teen Summer Camp, middle and high school students explore art in-depth and have a true studio experience.  Small class sizes allow instructors to take a deep dive with the students so that they can build technique and grow their individual style.

Themes include everything from “Comics, Characters & Cartoons” to “Art Around the World.”

She now works from home as a freelance graphic designer and a chauffeur to her 3 busy kids. "Working on TipsFromTown has been a wonderful outlet for me. It renewed my love of publishing where I can design colorful, enticing pages online and allows me to share the things I love about being a mom." Heather grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio, a place that still is near and dear to her. " After living in Brooklyn for 18 years and studying Graphic Design at Pratt Institute, she now lives in the Jersey burbs. "I love living so close to NYC, but in my heart, I'm an Ohio girl."
