June 24, 25, 28: Are you looking for an art adventure? Art Rangers is the perfect choice for the young artist’s ages 6 -12 years old, who wants to explore a multitude of mediums in a supportive and encouraging environment. Art Rangers will have the opportunity to paint, draw, sculpt, invent, print and more. Each week will be filled with new and exciting projects. Join us for one session or all summer long! Campers will leave with an overflowing portfolio sure to inspire continued curiosity.
GAAC’s Art Camps will bring unique visual arts opportunities to artists 6-12 years of age under the backdrop of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. All classes will be held in the park at the picturesque Thoreson Farm studios and will include all art materials. Instructors will help campers foster natural creativity, self-expression, art technique and genuine FUN time!
