Limited Openings Remain for Art Center's Summer Camp; Programs for Kids, Teens Available July 5 - August 25

The Art Center's Summer Art Camps Begin July 5.

SUMMIT, NJ - Limited space remains for the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey's Summer Art Camp, an award-winning creative summer camp experience that empowers children to explore the world around them in new ways.

The program gives children and teens -- ages 5 to 15 -- the support and opportunity to utilize their senses in ways that go beyond classroom learning. For example, in ceramics, campers will engage their sense of touch as they mold and shape material into what they desire. Visually, they will learn to portray what they see around them.

The Summer Camp Program begins July 5, with week-long sessions starting July 11 and continuing through August 25.
