LINX Art Camp

Overview

For children who love art!

At LINX Art Camp, your child will go on an adventure and explore different mediums to expand their creative imagination! Our staff introduces campers to charcoal, chalk, paint, colored pencils, oil pastels, watercolors, and still life with games and exercises to help campers improve their creative and technical skills. Campers will have three periods each day to work on targeted projects specifically chosen for their age and skill level.


All the campers of Art Camp will learn these skills through engaging lessons and fun games. Art camp includes 3 specialty art periods, a lunch period, swim lessons (including Red Cross Certified swim instruction) including free swim four times a week, and a bonus camp activity period.
