Mary M. Torggler Fine Arts Center - Summer Art Camps

Open Tuesday - Sunday 

Our 2023 Summer Art Camp runs from June 20 – August 17. The Torggler’s summer camp serves children ages 5-14 in three age groups: 5-7, 8-10, and 11-14. Camps are half-day classes held four days per week, typically Monday through Thursday. Register for both morning and afternoon sessions to enjoy a full day of art camp, complete with a supervised lunch period and optional after-care if desired.

This year’s camps are more fun and creative than ever, and include digital art, ceramics, mixed-media, macrame, portraiture, felting, and so much more! All camps are taught by qualified professional instructors who love art – and many of whom have decades of teaching experience. Join us for a summer of creative fun!

Call us at (757) 594-0800 if you have further questions or if you need help registering. We can't wait to see you at the Torggler this summer!
