Youth Art Camps

Phoenix Center for the Arts offers fantastic art camp programs for children between the ages of 6 – 12. Camps are held during Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter breaks at both the Downtown and North Phoenix locations.

At Phoenix Center for the Arts camps, children receive full-day instruction in visual and performing arts from local professional artists. Split into groups based on age, our campers receive a well-rounded arts experience while engaging in music, dance, drama, and visual arts classes. Materials are all included! For our 1-week and 2-week camps, family and friends are invited to the Center on the last day for a fun performance produced by instructors and campers.

For camps occurring in 2018, children must be enrolled in kindergarten through sixth grade for the 2018-2019 school year. Check out the Creative Critters Summer Camp program designed for 5 year olds!
