ARTScool is not a summer camp. Rather, ARTScool is a popular summer arts education program serving nearly 1,000 students aged 5 to 14 each year. The difference between ARTS cool and an art-centered summer program is that ARTScool allows students to choose from fantastic opportunities to extend creative learning in a
rigorous, supportive and super-fun environment.
ARTScool features accredited art instructors who provide children with individual attention and weave “STEAM” or science, technology, engineering, art and math, as well as other academics into artistic sessions. Students choose their own classes from an extensive set of curriculums taught by professional artists and instructors. They get creative, learn indepth content and develop healthy social skills.
Every year, NAA receives a lot of great feedback about the program.
Registration is now open for ARTScool 2014! The camp will be held at The von Liebig Art Center in downtown Naples off Park Street during the summer from June 9 through August 8, 2014. Children register for their choice of classes, with one class being offered in the morning from 9 a.m.- noon and another in the afternoon from 1 p.m.- 4 p.m. Students may be registered for one class (a half-day) or two classes (a full day) per week.
ARTScool offers over 50 different classes, ranging from clay making to music & art. Early drop-off is available. The Naples Art Association ensures that each student will receive a STEAM integrated educational experience with each class, ranging from math and science to world culture and history.
The lessons associated with these core subjects are woven into interesting art classes in sculpture, tiedye, LE GO® Bricks, drawing and more.
Data supports the important role of art education for fostering creative and analytic skills that are in high demand today. According to the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies, the arts foster young imaginations and facilitate children’s success in school. Furthermore, art education provides the critical thinking, communication and innovation skills essential to a productive 21st century workforce. Practice and education in the arts are vital components for a healthy and well-adjusted childhood. Need based scholarships are available.
