BCPS Summer Art Enrichment Camp Overview

The Baltimore County Summer Visual Arts Enrichment Program provides opportunities for students in grades 3-12 to build their personal art skills and add to their art portfolios. A variety of courses are offered to meet
the varied needs and interests of the student whether the student is seeking to improve his or her art skills or is preparing a portfolio for acceptance into a magnet program, entrance into a college program, or preparation for an Advanced Placement exam.

A Typical Day at Camp

Studio Experiences: Activities vary from day to day but generally include group interaction and independent work. Art problems attend to the processes artists engage in while creating art, as well as to the creation of finished art products.
Lunch: Students bring lunch daily.
Critiques/Discussions: Art problems provide opportunities for students
to respond, connect, and present their work.
Optional Transportation: Students will have access to transportation from selected schools throughout Baltimore County. Please see the registration page for more information. 

Open House Exhibition and Celebration!

An Open House/Reception will be held in the evening on Thursday, July 14, 2022, to give students, families, and teachers an opportunity to share in the two-week experience and see the artwork created during camp.

2022 Summer Camp Programs:

Entering Grades: 3-5
An Exploration of Artists and Their Materials

This program provides students opportunities to explore a theme through a variety of art materials as they learn about the work of various artists. Students will be encouraged to refine their current art skills and develop new skills with different materials by experimenting with and using 2-dimensional drawing and painting media and 3-dimensional materials. Students will learn about the artistic process as they solve visual problems, develop their own interpretations of the theme, and create their own art.

Entering Grades: 6-8
An Investigation of Media & Technique: Portfolio Development

This program is geared toward students interested in developing portfolios for consideration for magnet art programs. During this two-week program, students will create works of art that incorporate the traditional art forms of drawing, painting, and sculpture, as well as computer arts. Students will work from direct observation and imagination as they build a portfolio of work that provides a record of the progression of their ideas, skills, and images.

Entering Grades: 9-12
Painting & Drawing from Observation: Portfolio Development

This program is geared toward students who are interested in pursuing the sequential art program at the high school level and those who are preparing portfolios for Advanced Placement or college entrance. It allows students to survey their own artistic development to choose an area of concentration that will further their personal artistic growth. Students will research artists to find influences for their own work. Students will focus on drawing, watercolor, and oil painting.

New in 2022!

We are offering additional bundle packs of supplies for elementary and secondary students! Bundle packs include a small set of the items students use up most and will be received at the end of camp so they may continue making art throughout the rest of the summer! You may check-off and add these to your purchase price in the online credit card system.
In addition to bundle packs, we're also offering a sticker pack of the artwork you made during camp! You will have the option to receive up to 10 stickers of your choice using the photographed images taken during camp! Stickers will be sent to your school after the next school year begins.
