Week 1: June 18th-22nd, Our City, Our World

  • This camp will feature local artists and how Sacramento plays a part in their own art and where they fit in to the world around them. Camp activities include authoring a comic book, learning how to draw anime characters, and exploring street art.

Week 2: June 25th-29th, Clay Camp

  • Campers will learn how to hand build clay pieces. They will learn the process of clay creation from building to glazing. Campers will also get to work with polymer clay and learn how versatile clay can be.

Week 3: July 9th-13th, Installation

  • Join us for this fun week of camp as our campers create 3-dimensional work that fills our classroom space. This camp will have a focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) learning and will give the campers real world experience using handtools and construction materials.

Week 4: July 16th-20th, Mixed Medium, Art-Ventures

  • Campers will collaborate to create art that can fill large and small spaces. Together campers will paint murals and piece together mosaics for both a collaborative project and make their own individual pieces.

Cell Phone Policy

Campers are not allowed to use cell phones or electronic devices during camp at any time. They may bring them to camp as long as they are kept in their cubbies. If a parent needs to contact their child please call Verge at (916)448-2985.

Lunch Break/Snack Policy

Campers get an hour break for lunch between 12:00pm-1:00pm. During this time they may sit wherever they would like to eat their lunch. After their lunch has been eaten they have time for free play. Games and toys are provided and once or twice a week there is an instructor-led activity. Campers may bring snacks for themselves to be eaten during free time before and after camp. Water is provided but please send your camper with a water bottle.

Notes

Maximum enrollment for a summer camp is 18 campers to ensure that all campers get a quality experience. A waitlist for camps is available but there is no guarantee a spot will become available.

Youth-Art-Mentors

Is your child too old for camp? Sign them up to be a Youth-Art-Mentor (YAM)! This program is designed for 14-18 year olds who have a love of teaching and art. Our YAMs provide assistance to the instructor and help to our younger campers. YAMs are expected to interview and attend a pre-camp orientation session to learn more about their role. If you know someone who would be interested in becoming a Youth-Art-Mentor please contact Susan at susan@vergeart.com.

Refunds

Verge Center for the Arts reserves the right to cancel classes, to change instructors, and to make other changes that may become necessary to ensure a quality experience for participants. In the event that a class is canceled, we will contact all registrants and offer the option of transferring to another available session, or receiving a full refund.

If a participant wishes to withdraw from a class, he or she must do so in writing at least seven days prior to the first class meeting to receive a full refund, less a $25 processing fee. Withdrawals occurring within seven days prior to the first class meeting will receive a refund of 50 percent of the total class fee. No refunds are given on withdrawals once the class begins. Transfers are not accepted after a class begins. Membership fees are non-refundable. Please note we are unable to issue cash refunds.
