Summer Youth Sessions at FVAC Studios
SUMMER ARTS ADVENTURES
Each summer, the Farmington Valley Arts Center’s picturesque and inspiring Avon campus becomes a place where young artists unleash their creativity and develop confidence in their abilities to express their ideas. Working with professional teaching artists in a setting where talented studio artists create year-round, kids ages 6 to 15 enjoy a variety of exercises in visual arts, ceramics, sculpture and photography. With themes each week, and sessions run daily from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Kids learn from and inspire each other, too, as they work independently and collaboratively outdoors and inside the FVAC’s classrooms and galleries.

July 22-26 Animal Kingdom/Superheroes and Villains
August 5-9 Sculpting with Clay
