aspiring artists summer camps
instructed by molly nelko

Have your aspiring artists join Molly Nelko this summer for an 8-week summer camp!

This class is a chance for students to learn about what it takes to be an artist: from coming up with ideas for artwork, to creating art, to exhibiting their finished artwork. Each week students get to learn about different artistic media, including screen printing, still life painting, and paper mache.

At the end of the summer, your kids will help host their own art show in Kentuck's Teer Gallery to display their favorite pieces. Opening night will be on August Art Night, August 3, 2023, from 5-8 PM.


Session A: Tuesdays from 10am-11:30am: Ages 8-12.


Session B: Wednesdays from 3-4:30pm: Ages 12-16.

This class will be located in the newly available Studio 2 which is located behind Rusty the big red dog on our campus. Look for the blue double doors in the Courtyard of Wonders!


Tuition: $200, All supplies are included.

There is a minimum of 3 participants and a maximum of 6. If the minimum is not met, participants will be refunded.
