Curriculum

Middle School campers register for both a morning and an afternoon class. High School campers register for one class during the week.

A Note about Supply Lists

These supplies can be purchased at an art supply store OR at craft stores, e.g. Michael's, Hobby Lobby, Ben Franklin, Walmart. The Phoenix Bookstore will be working with us to pre-package your supply orders and will deliver them the first morning of camp.  To order, contact the UW-Green Bay Bookstore by phone at 920-465-2323.  Minimal supplies are actually needed for most classes and others are suggested to enhance the 'experimental' aspect of the class.  Please call or e-mail us if you have questions.

A Note about Lab Fees

Lab fees are for specific art supplies that an instructor will purchase for the whole class to use, such as clay for the ceramics class, and specific matting board for the drawing class, etc. These lab fees are in addition to the camp registration fee, and are for supplies not already noted on the supply lists.

Special Features

Camper artwork will be displayed at our Exhibition Show in the Lawton Gallery on the last day of the camp from 3:00-4:00 p.m. Awards are determined by the Summer Art Camp faculty and will be presented at 4:00 p.m.

Scholarships

Nearly half of Summer Art campers receive full or partial scholarships from parent groups, school clubs, and civic and service organizations. Be sure to contact your art teacher or local organizations directly to see if there are any scholarships available.

In the event a camper must cancel, the Summer Camps Office should be notified no later than one month before the start date of the camp session in order to receive a refund, less a non-refundable deposit of $100. Requests received after that date will not receive a refund. No refunds will be made for withdrawal due to homesickness, sending a camper home for disciplinary reasons, or after the camp has started.

In the event a camper requests to switch camp sessions, an additional $25 processing fee will be applied.

We reserve the right to cancel any camp due to low enrollment; in such a case, all fees paid will be refunded or the camper can choose to apply fees to a different camp/class in the same year.

Overpayments of less than $10 will not be refunded.
