Summer Art Camp for Kids

June 27th – July 1st and July 11th – July 15th 2022

Join us for an exciting, imaginative opportunity for kids this summer!

Our 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 2022 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 year, kids ages 6 to 11 are welcome to join either the week of June 27th – July 1st or July 11th – July 15th! The camp will take place from 9 am – 2 pm. 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, Samantha Yamini, and Jasmin Kirvin.

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

Regular partners for this program include the Center for Empowering Refugees & Immigrants (CERI) and the International Rescue Committee (IRC).


This program is made possible with support from the Oakland Art Association, Blick Art Materials and Homeroom 510.
