In light of the difficult health situation in Montreal caused by Covid-19, the Visual Arts Centre is cancelling its in-person camp for Summer 2020. Please visit our website regularly for updates on our digital Summer Programme for Youth and Teens.
Fine Arts Day Camp – ages 6 to 12*
Monday to Friday: 9 am to 4:15 pm
Join us this summer for another creative and inspiring artistic journey! Delve into a wide range of art materials; learn new skills and experiment with different creative approaches. Each week we will explore new themes.
Our small, bilingual classes of 15 students, grouped according to age, ensure that each child receives individual attention and is encouraged to advance at their own pace. Activities take place in our fully equipped and air conditioned studios as well as at Westmount Park, where outdoor games and a weekly swim complement the afternoon programme.
*Registered children must have turned 6 years old by September 30, 2020, at the latest. The day camp schedule and projects are not suitable for younger children. The Centre reserves the right to ask for proof of age.
