Art Camps

Every year, the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum’s Art Camps offer creative fun with experienced art educators! Children are invited to experiment with a variety of art mediums such as drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, clay, collage, assemblage, mixed-media, and more! The goal of our camps is to create a fun, inspiring, and educational program where campers can build skills in the arts and find confidence!
