At our award winning youth camps, students work closely with professional teaching artists for a full week of in-depth studio arts experience. Every camp includes high-quality art materials and a final celebration. Come for a half-day or pair a morning and afternoon camp together at BCA Studios to make a full-day experience. Camps at the BCA Center run for the full day.

Need a longer camp day? Join our Aftercare Art Clubs from 3-5 pm for an extended camp experience, which features sketch book time, visits to local hot spots, and other fun art activities. More time to explore and make!

ADULT CLASSES

Lifelong painters, burgeoning jewelers, and those merely inspired to make friends and try something new are all welcome at BCA. Our arts classes provide not only small-group instruction with a deep focus on individual style, expectations, and ability, but professional development opportunities as well. Many artists who have passed through our studios now run successful businesses, exhibit in galleries, and use our state-of-the-art facilities to continue their craft.

Summer Adult classes go on sale Monday, May 20 at 12 pm!
