summer camp 2018
 

Developing artistic talent in our community for 97 years!

Art gallery and studio experience combined, young artists will find inspiration through art exhibitions in
OPAL’s historic Carriage House Gallery, specifically designed to cultivate ideas for projects,
which are then guided by professional teaching artists in the studio.

In addition to skill development through a variety of media and processes, students will learn how to curate
and install an exhibit for a gallery presentation of their artwork at the conclusion of the camp week.
