Summer Day Camp
*Voted best speciality summer camp and best summer day camp in New Orleans in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 by The Nola Family Magazine! Come find out why!
We will have five different sessions of day camp all with exciting themes and focuses. Join us for one session or all five. Each camp session will be an integrated learning experience, where campers explore different art forms, their own creativity, and much more! Our summer camp is exclusive, accepting only about 12 - 15 campers per session. These small numbers make it possible for us to easily take walking trips in the neighborhood, undertake in depth, multiple step projects, and allow the campers to help plan their own curriculum by asking questions or expressing interest in certain topics. At City Park Movement and Art's summer day camp all of our activities are small group activities and every camper has a voice!
Our summer camp is designed for kids 7 - 15 years old (some sessions will have older minimum age requirements). Younger siblings and currently registered students at least 6.5 years old, will be considered. Each session is one or two weeks,
Monday - Friday, 9am - 3pm. We do not offer before/after care.
Prices will vary depending on the session. If a camper attends multiple sessions, a $25 discount will be given for each session after the first. We also offer sibling discounts, just inquire.

5:30pm - 6:30pm Drawing/Painting Open Studio, ages 10-16 years
What is an "open studio" art class? An open studio simply means that, the students will not be working on specific projects of the instructors choosing, but instead will have the chance to work on pieces of their own choosing. While most of their work will be self directed, in both medium and subject, they will have the support and guidance of their instructors, ultimately helping them develop new skills and pushing them to grow in the medium or style of art that they are most drawn to and inspired by. This class will have drawing and painting technique lessons built in, but for the most part the students will work on only a handful of pieces for the entirety of the session. Process & skill development will be emphasized.
