$100 Voucher for Summer Camp at Textile Arts Center
Textile Arts Center Summer Camp welcomes campers ages 5-13 to create and connect with the world of contemporary and historical textiles in an interactive and exciting week-long programs.
With each new session of camp your child will create an in-depth project in Weaving Class or Textile Surface Design Class, as well as daily craft projects using fiber and textile processes and concepts drawn from the exhibition we visit on our field trip.
Textiles exist in the world of utility as well as fine art and exist in nearly every aspect of our everyday life. Learning about how something is made and the labor that goes into it promotes appreciation of makers and our ecological impact. We empower youth to see themselves as the makers and innovators of the future and to continue their relationship with textiles well after their week at TAC.
TAC staffers are all working artists, designers, researchers, creative practitioners, trained and passionate about working with creative young people. We pride ourselves on creating a nurturing camp community with attention to each individual while fostering an engaging group dynamic. Campers are sure to leave with incredible textiles, great friendships, and lasting memories.
Check out these awesome reviews:
"This is our 5th year at the camp, and each year it's better and better. the weekly crafts are thoughtful and tied to the field trip, and involve a level of skill (which is taught) that elevates it from a simple arts-and-crafts project. The counselors are silly and fun and kind, and the program runs like clockwork. Excellent outdoor time/additional silliness, and lots of access to lanyard, embroidery floss, etc. for extra little projects. Each week is different, so you can do multiple weeks without repeating projects. Highly recommended!" - Anonymous
"This is my daughter's fifth year at this camp, and each year has gotten better and better. The projects are age-appropriate, but sophisticated and challenging, and the field trips to museums around the city are well integrated into the week's curriculum. My daughter attends for multiple weeks a summer, and no project is repeated, so there's no fear of boredom. Regular camp activities are incorporated too - playground time, games, etc., so it's a very well-rounded day. The counselors are attentive and adored, and TAC runs a very tight and organized ship! What would you change about the program, if anything? Nothing - we adore it as is!" -Anonymous
