Welcome to CT Art School's 2018 Summer Program

We have
a full program planned - our days are filled with ART and creativity. We offer 4-Day themed morning or afternoon sessions (there are two options for 2 full day sessions), Friday Mini Camps Just for 4.5-6 year olds, and Friday morning Painting workshops. Click the links above for details about each option.

How to Register

Use our online registration system:

This system will be able to confirm availability immediately and show an accurate count of how many spaces are open in each session. The site is secure and will accept Visa, Master Card, Discover, and American Express.

Our Location:
All programs are held at 1730 Ellington Road, and 1726 (The Studio) Ellington Road, South Windsor at Connecticut ART School.

During the themed sessions we will work outdoors, weather permitting, for some projects. We have portable easels and mats that we can bring outside and a nice grassy area to work. We will also be working in the school classrooms which are air conditioned. It’s great to have the option to work both indoors and out so we can easily adjust to the weather and the type of project we’re working on.

Class size is limited. We suggest you register early to reserve a space.

Our Philosophy:
In every class we will stress the process of art rather than trying to achieve a perfect result. By working in a supportive environment we’ll encourage each other to try new things. We’ll take time to really look at what we’re creating and spend some time playing with different art materials. Themed session descriptions may change somewhat depending on the interests of each group and the length of time projects take to complete.

Our Teachers:
Our teachers are awesome! We are proud to have teachers who are not only skilled, trained, experienced artists but patient, encouraging mentors. We work hard to get to know our students so we can challenge them and help them to create their best work. Our school is all about art - it's all we do. Our summer programs are jam packed with creativity and hands on fun.

Summer Refund Policy:
Since space is limited we can not offer any refunds or makeups. If you can't make it to a drawing class or Mini Camp you can send a sibling or family member in your place. If you miss a day for a themed session we will do our best to give you materials/projects to complete at home. We require a minimum of 6 students.

4-Day Themed, Morning or Afternoon, Sessions -
Our sessions are broken down into three age categories. If you have a child slightly younger or older and you think they would love these sessions please email us to discuss. Our days are fast paced and we do art the whole time - it's the perfect summer adventure for art loving kids!

All younger sessions will include drawing, painting, and 3D crafts related to the theme. We pride ourselves on developing cool projects (you won't be gluing fun foam door signs here). Projects could include: papier mache, Sculpey clay, Shrinky Dinks, printmaking, jewelry, and more. We're testing projects now, getting everything ready for summer.

Older sessions are designed primarily for middle school students. The projects and drawings are age appropriate, challenging, and fun.

We take 16 campers per session - with 2 or more teachers per session every camper gets lots of attention.

Please bring a water bottle and nut-free snack each day and wear clothes you can get paint on.

Registration is $175 per session. We are pleased to offer a $10 discount per camp for
additional family members or additional camps - the discount will apply to each camp and each camper. (Each camp will be $165).

Register online at: or download a .pdf Registration Form and mail it in or drop it off at the school. Any questions please email us at:

Six campers are required for a camp to begin. Since enrollment is limited camp fees will not be refunded unless there is a child on the waiting list who can fill your spot. There are no refunds or makeups for missed classes. Note: We reserve the right to refuse enrollment as necessary. Disruptive behavior will not be tolerated and students who do not comply will not be allowed to continue. Any remaining tuition is non-refundable.

NEW This Year - Afternoon Option for Session 1&2 and Sessions 6&7-
Several parents have asked about a full day option for camp. We have added an afternoon session during these two weeks. We need a minimum of 6 campers to offer this session. Please email us for details:

Friday Mini Camps Just for 4.5 & 6 Year Olds -
Camps are $28 per session. We offer the same class from 9-11 am and 1-3 pm. Choose morning or afternoon for as many weeks as you like. Please note - afternoon options are limited to the first three weeks.

Friday Painting Workshops -
This summer we are offering a choice of 5 Friday morning painting workshops for 7-14 year olds. These workshops meet at the same time as the morning session Mini Camp so they're perfect for siblings, friends, and carpooling! We'll be painting an 11x14 stretched canvas with acrylics. Cost is $30 per workshop.
