Summer Art Camp

Virtual Camp

Due to COVID-19, for the first time we offered a Virtual Art Camp, continuing Gadsden Arts tradition of creative summer fun with experienced art educators! We had a great 3 weeks of camp in June and 3 smaller camps in July, taught by our instructors, Anissa Ford and Donna Lowman over Zoom. With 29 campers over the 6 weeks, we created over 45 art projects, with art supplies given to each camper, and full scholarships available! 

Thank you to our scholarship donors!

The ArtZone is free to all, thanks to our generous sponsors, so we are also making our Art @ Home Kits free!
