Summer Art Camp for Kids

Our annual Summer Art Camp is a welcoming space where kids can explore their creativity and express their imaginative ideas through art. Offered for a full week in either June or July, camp activities aim to encourage children’s artistic interest and self-discovery while having fun with friends!

At the ARTogether-CERI Summer Art Camp, activities range from guided creative art projects to educational and holistic art activities to more freeform expressive art. Kids can look forward to fun projects like making clay sculptures, painting, collaging, and exploring the styles of famous artists.

The camp primarily serves children from refugee and/or immigrant communities. This Summer Art Camp is hosted by ARTogether and Center for Empowering Refugees and Immigrants (CERI) in partnership with Samuel Merritt University. Camp counselors include Polina Marso and Goli Hashemi among other occupational therapists. 

Offered free to children ages 6-11 from immigrant and refugee backgrounds, our Summer Art Camps are one of ARTogether’s longest-running programs.
