Summer Art Camp at Pocosin Arts


Summer Art Camp

June 18 - August 10, 2018 

Pocosin Arts Summer Art Camp welcomes youth of all ages and experience levels. No prior experience is necessary! Our Summer Art Camp serves our local community of Tyrrell County and surrounding communities, including parts of Washington, Dare, and Chowan Counties. We encourage fun, energetic classes in visual and performing arts! This year Each art camp is designed for the comfort of beginners and the advancement of experienced students.  We encourage all ages to join in the summer fun and creativity.  Your child will learn about a multitude of art media – from drawing and painting to metalwork, felt, clay and music.  Instruction in various creative techniques, hand coordination skills, and tutorials on tools and equipment will be covered.

We are excited to announce the return of Alando Mitchel and A Drummer’s World, Drumline, for the second year in a row! This year Summer Art Drum Camp will run for the entire week, Monday through Friday, June 25 – 29. Mr. Mitchel specializes in anti-bullying, self esteem development, and confidence building through music. Don’t miss it!

Our Summer Art programs are organized into two different age groups.  All classes run for one week, Monday through Friday. Age groups and meeting times are listed below.

At the end of the 7 weeks of Summer Art Camp, Pocosin Arts will host our Annual Youth Arts Show.  We invite you to join us Friday, August 10, 2018 at the Columbia Theater, located at 304 Main Street.  From 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm family, friends and art enthusiasts can tour the creations that our local youth built during our Summer Studios.  This year we are excited to announce that we will also be presenting a concert performed by the students from our music camp session.
