GRACE Summer Art Camp sessions are designed to take advantage of what GRACE does best: providing direct learning experiences centered on the visual arts. We focus on many aspects of art-making and encourage children to expand their artistic vocabulary and creativity through hands-on art activities taught by professional art educators. Children experience exciting themes exploring the visual arts in tandem with science, technology, and yoga!
This summer, we are excited to offer our camps in partnership with the Reston Association. Camps will be conveniently located at the Lake House.
