Summer Art Camps (Grades 1-12)
Artspace hosts 8-weeks of fun and creativity during our Summer Art Camp program for rising Grades 1-12. We offer weeklong summer art camps in various mediums, taught by professional artists, who lead students in the creative process, encourage exploration, and produce one-of-a-kind projects! While creating, students have the opportunity to meet working artists and view exhibitions from national and international exhibiting artists in our unique facility in downtown Raleigh.
Teen Portfolio Development Camps (Grades 9-12)
During our Summer Camps, we host week-long portfolio development intensives for students in rising grades 9-12. Students will work with a professional artist to build their skills in specific mediums and techniques while developing a portfolio ready for advanced art courses and college applications!

We believe that access to the arts is a right; one which has the power to create positive change in communities. Through education and engagement for people of all ages and abilities, community outreach and engagement, accessible studio space, and art exhibitions, Artspace works to remove the barriers that prejudice and privilege have created so that everyone in our community has equitable access to arts and culture.
