Artists in the Garden
Monday, July 18, 2022 through Friday, July 22, 2022 – 9:00 am–3:30 pmJoin the Waitlist Join the Waitlist
Children tap their inner artist, learn new skills, and get a taste of using nature in their artwork.
Inspired by the Arboretum's various theme gardens, campers work with natural materials collected from the garden, paints, clay, and other art supplies as they create a new project each day.
With an emphasis on building confidence and observation skills, this camp concludes with an art show for camp families, a great way for children to show off what they've learned.
Campers bring a bagged lunch and snack from home.
Camp registration will be limited to 15 campers. Campers will be required to follow NC State University Community Standards.
