Many Thanks! SUMMER CAMP 2018

Thank you so much to our teachers, volunteers and students who participated in Summer Art Camp 2018. We would also like to extend a special thank you to Hillcrest Professional Development School for hosting our summer camps!

Every summer, we host art camps for kids of all ages, combining a fun, relaxed environment with the opportunity to stretch artistic skills.


When we open registration for summer camps each spring, we will send a special announcement e-mail to our members and we will post on social media as soon as registration opens for Summer Art Camp 2019. (If you would like to join our e-mail list go to the home page and enter your e-mail at the bottom of the page!) 

Our summer camps include something for every age from 5 to 12, summer camp at The Art Center is a blast, with opportunities to engage with all sorts of art media, subjects, techniques, and traditions. Please see below the descriptions of camps from 2018 for an idea of what we offer. 

The Art Center of Waco is committed to providing quality art education to as many families as possible. If you would like for your child to attend summer camp, but the price is a barrier to participation, we do provide scholarships.

Examples of 2018 Summer Camp Classes



Campers will explore one of the most fun styles in modern art - Pop Art! They will look at artists like Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, and Wayne Thiebaud and make art work in similar styles, looking at the familiar with an artist’s eye and giving the viewer a new perspective. Your young one will be popping with excitement as they explore the playful and peculiar world of Pop Art.


This fun and engaging camp is all about finding new ways to use common things for the sake of art. Campers will explore all sorts of materials we typically throw away and discover useful and beautiful ways for these objects to live on outside of a landfill.


What do plastic bags, bubbles, craft foam, and the sun have in common? Campers will discover how these and other fun items can be used to create fabulous printed art works, of which they will be so proud! (Please plan to bring 1 solid colored or white t-shirt for printing this week.)

FABRIC & FIBERS: Ages 8-12

In this hands-on camp, campers will experiment with dyes and paints to make patterns, colors and prints on fabrics. They’ll also explore fibers such as yarn and thread to weave, twist, knot, or sew unique creations.  Campers will be pleased to learn that many of the projects they will make can be worn, used as decorations in their rooms, or given as gifts.


thank you to our master level members for helping sponsor our summer camps!
