2014 Summer Art Programs!

Our popular summer programs for children and teens provide students with the opportunity to try a variety of art mediums and develop new skills in a fun, safe and supportive environment, bringing families back year after year!

In our Children's Program and Preteen Program, students attend four classes daily in Visual Arts, Ceramics, Drama Activities and Sculpture/3D.  Grouped by the same age/grade, each student has the opportunity to learn and grow with friends and peers, while creating art and having fun!  The New Art Center environment also gives children the opportunity to work with and be inspired by our professional art instructors, who thrive on the enthusiasm of young artists.  Each week, children gain a sense of accomplishment by creating and bringing home exciting projects inspired by our program themes!

Our Teen Day Program, Afternoon Ceramics Program, & CIT Program enable teens to gain new skills and further develop their interest and abilities in the visual arts.  Our teen programs are small and highly individualized to give teens the knowledge, confidence and skills to create beautiful and intriguinig projects.  Working in Painting/Drawing, Sculputre/Mixed Media and Ceramics, teens will have a great time!

NEW! Walnut Hill School for the Arts and the New Art Center in Newton-two of the region's most respected arts institutions-have created a new Summer Visual Art Program for artists in grades 7-12 who are interested in refining their skills in visual art, while exploring new disciplines and techniques.
