Welcome to Art Camp!

Join in the fun of creating pieces of art!

Abel's Apple Acres is proud to host a Youth Art Academy. This program will provide a week long summer course in art. Each camp day Abel's Apple Acres will open its doors to welcome the youth of our community to our exciting summer program. All of our activities are customized by our highly educated teachers who have degrees in art and education. Throughout the week your child will be able to express themselves creatively, while having fun, and building lifelong memories.

About the Academy:

Each week your artist will take part in a series of courses, learning and expressing themselves through various art mediums and through curriculum and projects. Students are placed in three different groups based on age, as the art projects and instruction will be age appropriate. Throughout the day students will be rotating between three different classes. Each class will be doing different activities to keep your student engaged throughout the day.
