Art FAB: Visual Arts Camp for Grades 8-12  

These are IN-PERSON camps for rising 8-12 graders.
These camps are primarily exploratory- utilizing the spacious studio facilities at WCU Bardo Arts Center. Students will gain awareness of art forms not likely available to them in their schools. Participants should be prepared to be immersed in art making for most of the day. Clothing that can get dirty is recommended.
