High School students at The Arts Center are encouraged to hone their skills and interests, deeply engage in an intensive study in various mediums, or just discover and expand a new interest.  Many classes and camps offered are suitable for the beginning student, yet others are directly intended to answer the needs of the college minded fine arts student, helping them to expand their portfolio. Portfolio Development classes and camps are recommended for serious high school students who are developing their college entrance art portfolios.

Teens camps and classes at The Arts Center are recommended for high school students (Grades 9-12) unless otherwise specified. Summer camp students must be entering high school in the Fall. Our camps are tailored carefully for each age group. To maximize your child’s enjoyment and safety, please adhere to these guidelines. For Pre-Teen classes/camps (Grades 6-8), click here.
