Summer Programs

Mostly Art Summer Program

Boy with sculpture of a gorilla made in art summer camp in New York City.

Imagine your child spending one or more weeks this summer making a huge variety of exciting drawing, painting and sculpture projects, listening to stories, and enjoying an active recess! That’s what our Mostly Art Summer Program is all about. Our art summer camp in NYC is small with a high ratio of teachers to students, so your child will get lots of personal attention working on projects of their choice.

A generous snack is provided. Children and teens will bring their lunch Monday through Thursday, which they’ll eat while hearing favorite fairy-tales and fables.

Mostly Art runs from June through Labor Day. There’s a one-week minimum, but ask about our special 10% discount for signing up for three or more weeks!

We also have a Half-Day Art program running in the mornings and afternoons most weeks, depending on availability – call 212-535-1199 for more information.

Art In Motion & Jr. Art In Motion Program

Drawing of a ballet dancer by student in our summer art and dance camp in New York City.

Does your child love art AND dance? From June through August, you can have both! Art In Motion is our innovative partnership with American Youth Dance Theater, located directly across 75th Street from The Art Center.

Art In Motion, ages 6.5 – 10, features half a day of art 9am – 12pm (drawing, painting and sculpture) 5 days a week and half a day of dance 12pm – 3pm (ballet, tap, jazz, and yoga) 4 days a week (Monday – Thursday) at American Youth Dance Theater.

Our Jr. Art in Motion program for 5.5 – 6 year-olds, features half a day of dance 9am – 12pm 4 days a week at American Youth Dance Theater, and half a day of art 12pm – 3pm 4 days a week (Monday – Thursday).

A generous snack is provided and we ask that children bring their own lunch (no nuts or peanut butter). This is the perfect program for active children ages 5 – 10 who want the best of both creative worlds. Ask about our special 10% discount for booking three or more weeks!
