2019 Summer Camps

 

Summer Camps at GRA

Spend the day surrounded by art and inspiration at Great River Arts working one-on-one with our talented, local teaching artists. This year we have expanded programming to better serve our youngest students. We are looking forward to working with your children this summer to expand their creative vocabulary & encourage lots of growth & artistic development. Our expansion in summer youth programming is made possible in part by grant funding from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Five Wings Arts Council.
