We wanted to let everyone know our plans for in-person summer camps!

We've weighed safety guidance along with input from many of you, and feel safe hosting camps with only a limited number of kids. The well-being of our students + staff are our highest priority, always. We've mapped out strong safety protocols & procedures, and we feel confident that we can safely have our regularly scheduled summer camps in studio on a smaller scale.

You can see our health and safety policy here: https://akronartworks.com/blogs/news/health-and-safety-plan. A schematic of the newly configured space is below.

Camp themes range from Art Exploration to 3D Sculpture to Art Around the World. To see a complete listing of camp themes here: https://akronartworks.com/pages/camp

NOTE we are also offering online camps as well!

In-person camp size will be limited to 8 (eight) artists to allow students to spread out. And camp will be 3 hours, you can pick either morning (9am-12pm) or afternoon (1pm-4pm).

Each participant will receive their own personal supplies, including a mask, to use throughout the week. This will minimize sharing/passing of materials and students keep those supplies when the week of camp is finished.

Drop-off and Pick-up will be outside, to minimize the number of people inside the studio.

Wellness checks at drop-off daily.

We know first hand how therapeutic art can be, and we're so looking forward to offering this experience to kids right now when we they need it most!

Hey Akron Artworks! This showed up on my Facebook memories today... So figured I'd share. 😉 Thought you'd enjoy knowing I love this fun, little painting! 😊 Can't wait to have more creative times in your studio! 😉 🎨
Here’s our silhouette project! Thanks for the suggestion! We had fun! Used popsicle sticks and glitter foam paper.
So after the Monet class we were supposed to paint an impression of a Monet painting. Here's my take on Monet'h House of Parliament paintings. He did several of these & I used them all as references!

Because of you we love this artist. My daughter attended your After school class at Arrowhead. We may have to take a little road trip!
Come out to the show
Thank you so much, Micah, and Akron Art Works for such a fun evening! Really enjoyed learning about Van Gogh... (Vinnie😉! ) and then being creative and painting our own interpretation! Great time!! 👍 🎨😊👍
I am looking to sign my daughter up for a class that starts monday. I am trying to find out if i have to get supplies for her or does Akron ArtWorks supply it?
Thank you for hosting a WONDERFUL 8th birthday party!!! My daughter and her friends had so much fun splatter painting, ink blowing, and playing games. If you can measure a successful party by how messy the kids got and how much giggling/laughter occurred, then we hit the jackpot! =) Your staff was helpful and professional and made celebrating my daughter's birthday so easy!
