1- and 2-week sessions

In SAIC's Multi-Arts Camps, kids learn to discover, explore, and imagine in their own unique ways, experimenting with a variety of art materials and methods that encourage the development of creative thinking and problem solving skills. With the most summer camp options in Chicago, your children will be inspired by our fantastic downtown location, exceptional instruction, and regular opportunities to explore the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago museum.

Camps are grouped by ages 4–5, 6–7, and 8–9. Campers work together on a variety of fun projects and experience the joys of making art with old and new friends. Projects include painting, drawing, mixed-media, sculpture, printmaking, performance, digital art, and more.

Campers enroll for morning, afternoon, or both* timeslots (all day) with no duplication of projects. Each 1- and 2-week camp will have a new and exciting theme, so students can enroll in multiple sessions.

*Multi-Arts Camp: Ages 4–5 is a morning-only camp. CW Multi-Arts Camps will host a final exhibition on the last day of camp at 12:30 p.m. for both the AM and PM campers. Please plan on joining us- family and friends encouraged to attend!
